Back in 2014 Thailand made the headlines when they opened Nikanti Golf Club, with the first 18 hole par 72 course with three separate six hole loops.
Located next door to Suwan Golf Club and around 90 minutes drive West of Bangkok, Nikanti is definitely original. They decided in this modern age to offer golfers who maybe did not wish to play the full 18 holes, the opportunity to play six or 12 holes instead.
They brought in the top course designer and builder Thailand’s Pirapon Namatra, famous for his creations at Banyan, Waterside, and Santiburi Samui, to weave his magic over some old rice fields. The result was Nikanti which opened in 2014 and has already had many awards from around the world.
Bangkok courses are often criticized for their lack of elevation change, but that’s not the case here. Pirapon has cleverly incorporated the four most important issues of this golf course’s development including acreage, topography, soil, and vegetation. A good example of topography is the incorporation of the area’s naturally rolling terrain. As well as this he did not neglect the environmental aspects. By incorporating the native vegetation, the course was given character and beauty. Each three six-hole layouts each with two par-threes, two par-fours and two par-fives, and they all start and finish besides one of the best clubhouses in the country.
This is very much a five star experience from start to finish. The club operates a pay-to-play development, which means it does not offer memberships. The elegant clubhouse, modern and luxurious, feels sumptuous and classy. The Nikanti team has paid attention to the details when instead of providing regular golf carts they selected GPS-equipped golf carts, allowing golfers not only to manage your score, but also navigate easily on the golf course, order food and drink or simply book new tee-times via the touch-screen interface. Thanks to Nikanti’s all-inclusive philosophy guests not only get for their green fee and GPS-equipped golf cart but also the caddy and lunch. Need we say more….go enjoy a great course!
