Sawang Resort Golf Club may be a little further afield from Hua Hin than some of the other golf courses in the region but is still only an hour away. You can easily travel to and from the golf course in a day and have time for other activities in the evening if you wish.
It is certainly worth making the hour long journey into Petchaburi province as this golf course offers something different to the resort courses in Hua Hin. Sawang Resort Golf Club boasts 27 holes of golf surrounded by nature. Rice fields and fruit trees can be found on the edges of the golf course and make for a nice backdrop to a round of golf.
The golf course itself blends a good mixture of tree lined holes with water hazards. The East and South Courses are the most popular combination and this provides a good range of testing holes. Many of the fairways are wide and you will be tempted to reach for the driver on several holes. However, the width of the fairways makes Sawang Resort Golf Club suitable for players of all levels and experience.
Water is the major feature and hazard on the golf course. When playing the East and South combination, you will face four holes with shots over water. All four of these are found on the back nine holes with the 16th, 17th and 18th being three of them. It certainly makes for an interesting end to the round.
The latest set of nine holes which was completed in 2017 is called the North Course. The signature hole is H21 and this is a short par-3 with a tee shot over water to the green.
Sawang Resort Golf Club may not be the best conditioned course you will play in Hua Hin but that does not take away from the experience. This is a golf course in a rural setting and having the pleasure of playing in such a lovely environment cannot be underestimated. You will also be away from the main tourist crowds. If you are visiting at the busy time of year, a round of golf at Sawang Resort Golf Club will be very welcome.
The clubhouse includes locker rooms, pro-shop and practice areas while the resort has accommodation of 70 hotel rooms. In addition, you will find a restaurant, coffee shop, swimming pool and massage spa.
You could book an overnight stay and include Sawang Resort Golf Club as part of a larger Hua Hin golf tour.
