Pattaya golf: Khao Kheow Country Club
Pattaya Activities | Golf in Pattaya
Khao Kheow is considered by many golfers to be among the best golf courses in Pattaya. This breathtaking and challenging course designed by Peter Doyle is a real challenge to visiting and local golfers looking for the best golf in Pattaya.
Khao Kheow has innocent looking rolling fairways with some serious bunkers and hazards. Many golfers playing Khao Kheow can be seen with a look of wonder and even shock trying to figure out how their ball ended up where it did.
One of the biggest challenges of the course is recognizing that the most innocent of holes can be the trickiest. The illusion of an easy short hole can be turned into a nightmare when your ball sits in a bunker.
All but ten of the 27-holes at Khao Kheow are protected by water and many of the holes have long stretches of sand that will make you focus more on staying out of trouble than smashing the ball.
Golf in Pattaya on a course like Khao Kheow represents a glorious challenge for the golfer.
