Chiang Mai Golf Courses
The first nine holes were built in 1984 and play along a mountain ridge where you’ll see spectacular views of the surrounding hills and valleys. Several holes feature uphill and downhill play with blind shots to the greens but are a good test of golf. The second nine, finished in 1990, made this Chiang Mai golf course par 72 at a length of 6,840 yards.
Some of the most memorable holes at Mae Moh include the par five 2nd hole with two alternate greens. This short par five is steeply uphill and bends around to the left with a blind approach to the green. The par four 6th hole is the most difficult hole on the course. Your tee shot plays down into a valley with a lake on the left side of the fairway. Avoid the lake and you’ll have an approach shot back up the other side of the valley to a sloping green. A huge tree on the bank of the lake saves some golfers’ tee shots.
Hole 10 is a spectacular, although short, par three with a handicap index of two. You play from an elevated tee downhill to a tiny green. Water encircles the front of the green and a deep bunker behind waits to catch long shots. The closing hole is a tricky par four with water on the right encouraging a drive down the left side of the fairway. The water then cuts in front of the green requiring a long, nearly perfect approach shot to reach the green in regulation.
The facilities at Mae Moh are best described as rustic and quite adequate for most golfers. It takes about an hour and a half to drive from Chiang Mai to reach this public golf course and well worth the occasional visit, especially for those Chiang Mai golfers looking for somewhere to play that is under the radar and local in ambiance. This mature course is a fun design and makes for a pleasant day of golf. Book this course through Golf Orient, or let us add it to a personalized Chiang Mai Golf Package for you and your group.
