One of the many great aspects of a Hua Hin golf holiday is how close many of the golf courses are to the centre of the town.  Palm Hills Golf Club is a great example and this golf course is just 10 minutes away, making it perfect for a round of golf at any time of day.

Opened for play in 1992, the golf course was designed by Max Wexler and just a year after opening it played host to the first edition of the Thailand World Pro-Am tournament. 

For those who are looking for a change of pace from many of the other golf courses in the Hua Hin region, Palm Hills Golf Club is a good choice.  It has a distinctive links style feel to it and is the only golf course in the area that can make such a claim.

An outcrop which extends from the mountain range makes for an additional element to the course but there is no getting away from the water. 

The first hole does not have any water of note but that soon changes on the par-4 2nd hole at Palm Hills Golf Club.  The tee shot must clear to sets of water hazards which come close together and there is water all the way up the right side of the fairway.  The green is protected by three bunkers and there is water to the back right and back left of the putting surface.

There is a choice of four tee boxes on each hole which makes the course suitable for all players.  As the name suggests, many of the holes are surrounded by palm trees and other native plants, which add to the beauty of the golf course.

The par-3 8th is one of the top holes on the course and features a tee shot over water.  The green is protected by bunkers to the left and right, so clearing the water is great but you must also be accurate to avoid the sand traps.

Some of the greens can very tricky and the 9th hole is a great example.  The green slopes from right to left and if you leave your ball above the hole, you are left facing a daunting downhill, breaking putt.  Many good front nine scores have been undone on the 9th green, so looking at the pin position and shot planning is essential.

Other holes of note include the 14th which has both water and sand to contend with on the fairway and the 17th which has out of bounds on both sides of the fairway.

Having completed a round at Palm Hills Golf Club you can retire to the clubhouse where you will find a restaurant serving a choice of Western and Thai dishes.  The golf club is also home to a pro-shop, driving range and putting green, making it a great place for a day of golf in Hua Hin.

Visually stunning, well maintained course that rewards solid play. Each hole invites you to approach in a different way.

Lack of service and poor management of tee time

Reviewed by ; on
The experience was heavily pulled down by the staff. First of the staff at the front desk is not very helpful. They don’t smile much, and then they nag at you. I was there 20 minutes before my tee-time, but the lady couldn’t manage to find my name although I told her multiple times, and when she finally found it they wouldn’t give me time for driving range, so I had to go out playing all cold. They only take card in the pro shop, and not at the different cafes/halfway houses, and they can’t open a tab for later payment. The caddy was very quick to say the ball was lost a lot of times, so she could tell me to buy more. More than often I would find the ball by myself, and it was not even remotely close to out of bounds or gone. The course itself is fine, some places very soggy in the morning because of bad drainage On the website I booked the tee time through it says they advice to tip 200 THB to the caddy, which is totally fine, although the caddy insisted she had to be paid 400THB at least because of Thailand law?????? Because it took the front desk so long to find my name and booking the caddy would pick up my ball and just continue to the next hole without asking me. I find that very rude and not in okay, when it is at their fault. I have played both with the 500THB bag and the 1000THB and honestly there is no real difference. I would NOT recommend palm hills. I’d rather go another place where the guests are treated better.

Nice surroundings was busy for a Monday but pace of play good throughout.

2nd time at Palm Hills you need to play off the yellows or blues to make it a true test. Greens not that good unfortunately and every pin was stuck at the front of the green! Obviously struggling with greens although still reasonably quick. . It was disappointing that every pin was only a couple of paces on to the green, and found greens to be a little dry and not true! Otherwise, this is a decent course that needs to be played off the blues or yellows if you are a lower Hcp.

Really nice course and layout. Practice areas was not so good. Huge difference between the pace of the practice green ( very slow) and the greens on the course, cost me a bogie on the first hole :). Nice caddies and pace of play.

Although the dry season started, the course is well maintained, nice caddys, a little overcrowded, so slow playing, but worth it..
