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.

Banyan Golf Club

Nice but overrated

Reviewed by ; on
Long wide fairways. Easy for long hitters. Only a few real obstacles. But very well groomed. Perfect conditions. Caddies ok but not more. Facilities are excellent. Nice to play but nothing real special compared to what I expected.

Even though the greens recently been dressed the pace was good, some tough reeds. Nice bar and great locker rooms and friendly caddies.

Rained the day before and this course was a soggy mess - poor drainage. T

Reviewed by ; on
o add more problems landing areas on fairways were undergoing fertilization, with fodder scattered all around. The caddie (who was excellent) had to clean the ball almost every time so you could hardly play the ball as it lie. I don’t see why they charge so much for a course that has poor drainage, especially when fairways are under maintenance. There are better courses in Hua Hin.

Exceptional course and service

Reviewed by ; on
Exceptional course, facilities and service. From real grass driving range through fast and true greens just a pleasure to play. Experienced caddy (#102) made a true difference.
