Opened in 2005, Chiang Mai Highlands Golf Club stands as a pinnacle of golfing excellence in the region, enhancing the allure of Chiang Mai’s golfing landscape. A scenic drive from Chiang Mai unveils breathtaking vistas of rice fields and plantations, leading into the majestic mountains where the course resides.

Situated on a sacred ‘power spot,’ the hermitage of Kuba Sivichai, founder of the renowned Doi Suthep temple, the course offers unparalleled tranquility and natural beauty. Crafted by Lee Schmidt of Schmidt-Curley Design, renowned for his work on Mission Hills, Amata Spring, and Siam CC, Chiang Mai Highlands quickly garnered international acclaim, earning accolades like the ‘Best New Golf Course in Asia’ in 2007.

The Highlands course boasts 27 exhilarating holes, catering to players of all levels with five tee box options. Featuring Paspalum grassed fairways and Tiff-eagle grass greens, it ensures optimal conditions year-round. The course’s layout incorporates over 130 strategically placed bunkers, adding challenge and visual appeal to each hole.

Undulated greens, firm yet receptive, demand strategic prowess and local caddie knowledge. Approach areas offer various options, testing players’ creativity and skill. From the captivating downhill hole #1 to the unforgettable 18th, with its short downhill par-5 and challenging water hazards, the course showcases breathtaking views and thrilling challenges at every turn.

The Thai-styled clubhouse offers a pleasant atmosphere and all necessary amenities for a relaxing golfing experience. Chiang Mai Highlands also features superb practice facilities, including practice greens and a 300-yard driving range with grass tees. For those seeking an extended stay, a small on-site Thai resort provides cozy accommodations amidst the picturesque countryside.

Overall, Chiang Mai Highlands is hailed as one of Thailand’s premier golfing destinations, offering an unparalleled golfing experience that should not be missed on any Chiang Mai golf holiday itinerary.
