Following a complete renovation a couple of years ago Mountain Shadow Golf Club is now a very attractive Pattaya golf course with plenty of water hazards. Excellent layout with some really tough holes which will challenge most golfers. Originally designed by Ron Fream its set in a former mango plantation set against a backdrop of the surrounding hills covered with the local plant life.
To play this course well you have to be accurate off the tee and you need to position your drives carefully as fairways are tight and you can get blocked out by the trees if you stray off line. The undulating fairways mean that a flat lie is a rarity and add to this the fast and uneven greens which will result in plenty of 3 putts then this course will test most people.
The 14th is a great par-5 that hugs a large lake which you will do well to avoid and you need to be careful not to take on too much of the dogleg but if you are too conservative then you have no chance of reaching the green in regulation. You will need plenty of balls because if you manage to keep out of this water hazard then you still have to negotiate a total of no less than four island greens which are sure to claim their fair share of your golf balls.
A much improved clubhouse, reasonable restaurant and a well-stocked pro shop. The staff are very friendly, and the caddies also good fun and usually quite knowledgeable and you will need their help to negotiate this challenging course.
Tee Times at Mountain Shadow Golf Club

Very bad first impression as the clubhouse is really in need of some renovation and it does not look as though it has been touched in years. The course, however, is in good shape and is fun to play but it is certainly not easy. The front nine is all about palm trees and water and the inward nine has more elevate changes and woodlands. Excellent value courses even in the peak season and it is rarely crowded. The staff are polite enough and the cadies seem to know the courses pretty well.
The narrow landing areas, tree-lined fairways and the water hazards present the main problems on this beautiful rural course. The greens and fairways are in reasonable condition. The courses is not that long but you still need to take care. The courses was pretty empty when we played midweek and we got round quite fast. Caddies were fine and thought it was good value.
