For any nature loving golfer who wants to experience a unique combination of golf and Thai jungle, a trip to the Soi Dao Highland Golf Club is certainly worthy of consideration. Soi Dao Highland is located in the Soi Dao mountains near the ThaiCambodia border, under 50kms from the town of Chantaburi.

Due to excellent highway links it is possible to visit in a day trip either from Pattaya or Koh Chang. The distance from Koh Chang is 120 km. Use the shortcut via the village of Makkam, it will save you time and the traffic is less intensive than on the main road. If you have the time, an overnight stay at the Club’s own resort hotel makes for a very relaxing golf/nature trip. The golf package is excellent value for money.

Despite its rather isolated location, the course is no backwater golfing outpost. It was designed by renowned American course designer Denis Griffiths and pulls no punches when it comes to quality holes designed to test players of all levels. It is one of the hidden treasures of Thai golf. The course plays between 7,162 and 6,172 yards (5,379 for ladies) and is par 72. The holes are mixed between playing both up and down hill slopes as well as along natural undulating valleys nestling between the hills that surround the golf course.

There are many challenging holes with the par 3 being considered a signature hole. At 206 yards to a green protected by water at the front and bunkers at the rear the hole rewards long and accurate long iron or short wood play with a 170 yard drive required to clear the pond. Many holes require the avoidance of streams that always seem to be located at favoured driving distances and provide a challenge for golfers of all abilities.

The most striking attribute of Soi Dao Highland is the surrounding environment. Throughout, the course is surrounded by lush tropical forest which provides a stunning contrast to the neatly cropped fairways and tightly manicured greens. Players from western countries will be astonished and have to contend with the enormous array of unfamiliar jungle noises – which can be surprisingly loud! Bird lovers will also enjoy the wide range of colourful, exotic tropical species that can be seen in the course of a round of golf here.

The Clubhouse at Soi Dao Highland is a masterpiece of environmental design built with the intention of blending in with the natural beauty that surrounds it.
