Laem Chabang Country Club is one of the best golf courses in Pattaya and also one of the best in Thailand.  The course is is in pristine condition with lush fairways, fast and true putting greens, immaculate clubhouse and top-class caddies.  A “must play” course and one you will not forget.  Also offers night golf starting from 3.30pm which is very popular with Pattaya golfers.

 

The 27 Jack Nicklaus-designed holes, (named the Lake, Mountain and Valley nines after the terrain of each course) have been moulded to the natural landscape by one of the greatest designers.  The Valley nine is probably the most difficult but that does not mean that the others are easier and whichever you play you need to get used to some long carries over water, sometimes thick rough , well-placed bunkers and very fast greens.

Our favourite course at Laem Chabang is the Valley nine and the second which is a monster par 5 has water everywhere and demands accuracy all the way to a green protected by a bunker along the right hand side.  The 3rd is the second most difficult with a demanding carry over water to another well-protected green with bunkers along the left.  This nine does not give you any time to rest as the 4th is the most difficult of any of the 27 holes at Laem Chabang Country Club – not that long but with bunkers protecting the fairway and a lake in front of the sloping green most golfers  will be very relieved to escape with a par.

Then it’s on to one of the prettiest golf holes at any of the golf courses in Pattaya.  The par 5, 5th hole stretches to more than 200 yards with numerous bunkers – a very daunting prospect for any high handicapper.

Hole number 6 on the Lake course is a good example as even a good tee shot still leaves an approach shot of 150-160 metres over water to the green.  The 9th is another very interesting challenge and most golfers will need 3 shots to reach the green as it is protected by rocky outcrops on both sides.

The 2nd hole on the Valley 9 offers some interesting choices – if you want to go for the green in two you have to flirt with the creek to allow for a shorter approach across water but if you play up then you can afford to keep away from this hazard

The pick of the Mountain holes is the 2nd which is a par 3 cross water which is longer if you decide to take on the flag and higher handicappers are advised to ignore the flag and play to the right side of the green.

Laem Chabang International Country Club - Course Reviews

"Great Golf Course"

Reviewed by Sonny; on 03 Apr 2016
I have not played night golf before and we played the first nine in the daylight and the back nine under floodlights. It was a very enjoyable experience – nice and cool and the lighting was pretty good. We had very good caddies which made the experience even more enjoyable. It's a very different experience but great fun.

"A course not to be missed"

Reviewed by Kev; on 29 Mar 2016
We played here three times last year and it never disappoints us. It a Nicklaus design and we prefer the A & B combination. Very testing opening tee shot on the A course. The course is very picturesque and always in great condition. Excellent caddies. Also offers night golf.

"One of the best in Pattaya"

Reviewed by Chen; on 16 Feb 2016
Superb maintenance throughout the course and I enjoyed the views. I played all three nines and found the valley courses quite difficult. Lake course is a bit easier but I found the Mountain Courses to be the best of the three. Superb clubhouse facilities and as good as anything around. You can also play night golf but most of the staff pack up at 6.30pm so there was no one around to help with my golf bag. That apart the experience was almost perfect and easily as good as Siam Country Club.

"An old favourite and still one of the best."

Reviewed by Chipper; on 26 Jan 2016
I have played here before and its one of my favourite courses in the world. Everything is great: courses, clubhouse and caddies. In my opinion the best course in Pattaya but book early as they are always very busy.
