(formerly Kaeng Kranchan Country Club)

27 holes par 72 / 36 (7,330 / 3,600 yards)

Remote Jack Nicklaus designed Country Course

 
Thai Diamond Land Kaeng KrachanThai Diamond Land Kaeng Krachan , formerly known as Kaeng Krachan Country Club and Golf Resort opened back in 1994 in neighboring Petchaburi Province; roughly an hour’s drive inland from Hua Hin. A beautiful setting located on the northern side of a mountain range where it is surrounded by mountains, forests, and lakes.

The first 18 holes (Lake and Valley) were designed by Cherd Bunyaratavej, a popular Thai golf architect. His holes will require accurate driving off the tees to avoid losing balls in the trees and bamboo forests that line the fairways. The fairways play off well maintained turf and their greens tend to be tricky, as they don’t appear to have a lot of movement in them. Water hazards here come into play on six of the eighteen holes with a few natural lakes.

In 2008 the club decided to expand and contacted the Jack Nicklaus design team to create their nine-hole ‘Mountain Course’, making Thai Diamond a true 27 hole golf facility. From the Championship tees the par 36 Nicklaus course stretches over 3,600 yards and offers some of the most dramatic elevation changes in Thailand golf.

Typically for a Nicklaus track, here you can take your risk and reward options, playing off different tees for golfers of varying skill levels. The Nicklaus design team did a fantastic job by sticking to the natural terrain, lakes, and streams with minimal disturbance to the environment, leaving the golf course feeling natural and peaceful.

Interestingly here there are , four holes that dogleg left, unlike Nicklaus normal style that favors designs requiring a fade off the tee. Hole three is a wonderful par five that runs left through a forest onto a fairway laced with bunkers, up to a tiered green sloping back to front.

The Nicklaus Mountain Course built to international standards, is an great layout and was used in 2010 by the Asian Tour for its Q School.

This course location is 51 kilometers away from Hua Hin, so the bonus is it rarely gets very busy, especially in the off season. Millionaires golf!!!!

It is well suited for golfers in or near Hua Hin that are looking for a change and a golf course that is a bit off the beaten tourist track. There is an on-site golf resort, but it is a bit basic. Book this course through Golf Orient, or let us add it to a personalized Hua Hin Golf Package for you and your group.
