Banyan Golf Club

Holes 18 | Par 72 | Length 6731 m / 7361 y | Type Parkland | Architect Pirapon Namatra

Hua Hin is fast becoming known as one of the top places for a golf holiday in Asia.  Located just a few hours away from Bangkok, this popular beach resort has become home to some of the best golf courses in the country.

One of which is Banyan Golf Club.  Opened for play in 2008, Banyan Golf Club has established a very good reputation for golf in Thailand and was awarded Best New Course in Asia-Pacific by the readers of Asian Golf Monthly just a year after opening.

One glance at the course and it is easy to see why Banyan Golf Club is so highly regarded.  The 18-hole championship golf course was designed by Pirapon Namatra of Golf East, one of the great golf course designers Thailand.

While water does come into play, it is perhaps not as prominent at Banyan Golf Club as others throughout the country.  The views from the course are superb and the backdrop of mountains on one side is in contrast to the ocean views on the other side of the course. 

Despite not featuring the abundance of water found on some of the other golf courses in Hua Hin, water hazards are present on the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th holes.  This may seem like a lot but once you get beyond the 7th hole, water is not really a feature on the course.

That’s not to say Banyan becomes an easy course after the 7th hole and there are many tricky holes to look out for on the back nine.  One of which is the short par-3, 15th hole.  This is the signature hole at Banyan Golf Club and the views to the left from the elevated tee box over the ocean is fantastic, with mountains and valleys off to the right.

The distance to the hole is short but you must know your distance well with each club as it can be deceiving.  The wind also plays a part on this hole and if it picks up when you are on the tee, it can lead to a very tricky shot.  The key is to try and focus on the shot but with the spectacular views surrounding the hole, even that can prove tough.

Each hole at Banyan Golf Club presents a fresh challenge and the par-5, 12th hole presents a nice comparison to the 15th.  This hole plays to a massive 610 yards from the back tee and although the fairway is generous, there are several bunkers waiting to gobble up the ball. 

Banyan Golf Club has a choice of four tee boxes on each hole, so if the 12th sounds too daunting, you can play from one of the other tees and this makes the course suitable for everyone.

In addition to the fabulous golf course, Banyan Golf Club is home to a stylish club house.  It comes complete with locker rooms, showers, pro-shop and terrace restaurant, the latter of which offers tasty cuisine and lovely views of the golf course and mountains.

Our customers reviews of Banyan Golf Club

Banyan Golf Club

One disinterested caddie ruined the experience.

Reviewed by ; on
My caddie was excellent. My wife's caddie was unfriendly, aloof, indifferent and unhelpful. Frankly, she should not be there or should be allocated only to wealthy, handsome men either available or unavailable. We play all over the world and rarely have we experienced this lack of interest. Her attitude spoiled not only my wife's game, but mine as well. We have played here many times over the past 10 years and not previously had a problem.

A nice course

Reviewed by ; on
Very nice course where all holes are different in shape and design. But there is a tendency to push players even if you play well below the theoretical time to complete the round. This is probably due to the objective of the club to stuff as many players a possible in one day but it is not right given the price of the green fee.

Driving range is so bad. Its like hitting the ball from the bunker. To much sand almost no grass Fairways are so wet in some areas like from heavy rain. But this is Poor Maintenance.
