Royal Hua Hin Golf Course

Holes 18 | Par 72 | Length 6077 m / 6646 y | Type Parkland | Architect O.A.Robins

One of the many great aspects of playing golf is the history surrounding the sport.  While many people know about famous courses such as the Old Course at St Andrews in Scotland, it often comes as a surprise to learn about the history of golf in other counties around the world.

Thailand is a great example and Royal Hua Hin Golf Course was established in 1924.  This makes it the oldest 18-hole international standard golf course in the country and it has a long history.

Situated next to the main train station in Hua Hin, visitors arriving from Bangkok or other areas of the country can see the golf course on arrival.  It is located just 5 minutes away from the centre of the town and can easily be reached from wherever in Hua Hin you decide to stay.

As you may already have guessed, Royal Hua Hin Golf Course has links to the railway.  The course was commissioned for British workers constructing the railway and the upper class Thai people who lived in the area.

The course was designed by A.O. Robins, a Scottish railroad engineer and having enjoyed a renovation in the 1980’s, it remains an international standard golf course today.  Royal Hua Hin Golf Course plays to just 6,678 yards, which is short by modern standards but several of the fairways are tight and lined by trees.

Many of the greens are elevated and make for small targets so accuracy plays a huge role in achieving a low score.  You will find bunkers on most holes although none of them are particularly challenging.  Most players will be able to escape them without any difficulty.  If you have played golf in Thailand previously, chances are you will have faced the challenge of water but that’s not the case at Royal Hua Hin.

There are no lakes or ponds on this golf course, so you do not have to worry about losing balls in the water.

The par-4, 13th hole is a favourite of many who visit Royal Hua Hin Golf Course and that’s mostly down to the presence of wildlife.  A group of macaque monkeys have taken a linking to the trees and vegetation around this hole.  Should your ball travel off target, there is a chance they may decide it belongs to them and you will not see it again.

The course is not the best conditioned you will find in Hua Hin but it makes for a lovely round of golf, with some good holes.  The history alone is enough to make a round of a golf at Royal Hua Hin worthwhile and the location makes it ideal for every Hua Hin golf itinerary.

Hello we had heard that the condition of the course was very good. We were very dissatisfied with the condition of the track now. doesn't seem like they cut the fairways for a long time. we paid 1400 thb each through you and they had discounted it to 1000 now including food and drink.

Royal Hua Hin Golf Course

Royal course a must play while in Hua Hin,

Reviewed by ; on
Easy access, experienced caddie, good layout course where you can beat your handicap! I enjoyed the Royal course, oldest one in Thailand, with very easy access from Hua Hin Hotels, you can even use the green line TukTuk. Good layout, well-irrigated, with wide, forgiving fairways and NO water hazards! Played with the same ball for the whole game. My 33-year-old caddie Ying, was extremely helpful at reading the greens and club selection, after the third hole, she handed me my clubs without asking and was right each time. We walked the course and there were option to buy refreshments every 3 holes. Around the 13th hole, a bunch of monkeys were playing around. The only negative thing was my left handed rental set, mix match of old Titleist Irons, Odissey putter, and old YYonex Woods and driver, and 800 BTH, if you go bring your own or rent somewhere else. Overall very happy with my round at the Royal course and will go again with better clubs.

Nice course

Reviewed by ; on
A nice course in good condition. Liked the fact that almost every 3rd hole was chance to buy drinks. Negative is that lockers are not open for guests. Caddie was a bit too rushed - 18 holes in 2 hours 15 minutes is for me way too fast.

Royal course has get much better in last 2 years. A lot of work has been done on the greens. I think in few year Royal will be the number one golf course in Hua Hin area. They have done good development work making the golf course better. Now it is already good mak mak!
