Springfield Golf Club

Holes 27 | Par 72 | Length 6440 m / 7043 y | Type Parkland | Architect Jack Nicklaus

Some of the biggest names in golf have been involved in the design of golf courses in Hua Hin and it does not get much bigger than Jack Nicklaus.  The Golden Bear is regarded by many as being the greatest golfer of all time and he has also made a successful career from designing golf courses.

Springfield Royal and Country Club is a Nicklaus course in Hua Hin and he is responsible for the design of the original 18 holes at this venue.  Located just 30 minutes from the centre of Hua Hin, it is easy to reach yet nestles in the shadows of the mountains.

Open for play in 1993, there are now three sets of nine holes, with the third set designed by the golf course architects Lee Schmidt and Brian Curley. 

The original Nicklaus 18 holes, known as the Mountain and Lake Courses are not as challenging as the latest creation but as one would expect from a Nicklaus design, water and sand play a huge role.  However, there are five tee boxes on each hole so you can play from whichever is suitable, with the black being the toughest of the lot and only recommended for top players.

Keeping the ball straight is the key to success at Springfield Royal Country Club.  The course does not play particularly long but if you are failing to find the fairway, the rough, water and sand comes into play.  The waste bunkers on the back nine holes of the original 18 are especially tough and can lead to dropped shots towards the end of the round.

This first hole is a good example of having to find the fairway, with rough and a well-protected green.  The first water hazard is found on the second hole, with a pond to the left and stream separating the fairway and green.

However, it is not until you hit the back nine holes, called the Lakes Course, that you begin to find water becoming a problem.  The fourth and fifth holes on this course both require approach shots over water to the green.  The final hole, which is a par-5, has an island green, making it a great way to finish the round.

The Nicklaus Course has been well maintained and you will enjoy playing in lovely natural surroundings.

The third set of nine holes is the Valley Course and many argue this plays tougher than the original course.  The greens are especially challenging and if you find yourself on the wrong side of the hole, putting becomes a real test.

The facilities at Springfield Royal Country Club may not be the most modern in Hua Hin but the restaurant is excellent.  You can enjoy tremendous views across the golf course with something to eat and it is a nice way to end the day.

Great course, currently pro shop and main lobby on renovation but doesn't effect operation.

Reviewed by ; on
Overall the fairways and greens are great. Green speed a bit slow, but healthy and true. Would like to come and play again here with faster green speed.

Clubhouse undergoing major renovation but course immaculate

Reviewed by ; on
Clubhouse undergoing major renovation so currently facilities very limited - 12 lockers and 4 showers! Clubhouse staff very friendly and helpful though. Caddies lazy and not very nice - one driver head cover lost. Course beautiful but very long so need to bring "A" game. We were due to play behind 16 Asian golfers but luckily with a bit of persuasion we jumped a couple of holes so pace of play was not too bad - aforementioned golfers were still playing more than an hour after we finished. Would recommend though as quality of course very good you just need a bit of luck with fellow players and a lot of golf balls !

Overall excellent value for money and should be on everyone’s list if in Hua Hin

Reviewed by ; on
We played here about six years ago and it is pleasing how much better the condition of the course is this time. Played off the blue tees which was readily a challenge even for my 1 marker partner. Got around in three hours which is great and the management clearly place a high regard on pace of play. Pro-shop is poorly merchandised and the staff appear unhappy in their jobs with little effort in delivering friendly service. Caddies were very good in terms of golfing advice and friendly banter. Clubhouse is relatively spartan but meets basic requirements.Course is in great condition and well designed rewarding one who can hit controlled fades and draws with the driver. Greens were sanded which nullified spin and they were not very fast but were true and in good condition. Overall very good experience and excellent value for money.
