Santiburi Samui Golf & Country Club

Santiburi Samui Country Club is nestled on a hillside above Maenam beach and offers magnificent views of the ocean, beaches and neighboring islands Ė probably the best views of any golf course in Thailand, if not Asia.

The golf course, the first and only course on the island, is designed to meet international golf course standards. It fits-in harmoniously with the rolling contours of the hills and blends perfectly with the beauty of the surrounding coconut plantations. Its design concept has been envisioned as international, entertaining and intriguing - certainly one of the most beautiful golf courses in the region.

It lies lengthwise along the coast with its highest and lowest points around 250 and 30 meters above sea level. This big difference in altitude results in a deep slope down toward the ocean with the hills providing a serene backdrop. Minimum disruption and maximum harmony was the design theme as the course was literally painted into the hillside with natural waterfalls winding through and around the course.

The 6,932 yards, par 72 course was designed by Pirapon Namatra and co-designer Edward Thiele to provide a different and memorable experience on every hole. From the 156 yards par 3 6th that features a vertical drop and a natural waterfall, to the downhill 631 yards par 5 17th, no other championship caliber course in the region can offer a comparably dramatic backdrop.

Each hole has been positioned along the contours of the hills giving them their own individual character and challenge. Tifeagle greens, Seashore Paspalam for tee-offs, and long-winding fairways that are carefully maintained in accordance with international standards makes Santiburi Samui Country Club a ďmust playĒ golf course.

At the center of your golfing adventure is the clubhouse. Rising above land and sea, it provides an accompanying level of service that includes a driving range and practice greens. The Driving Range has been designed to replicate the golf course with shots to hillside greens. The tee area also has a spectacular view of the ocean. The practice putting green is maintained to the same high standard of those on the course itself. The clubhouse also houses its own restaurant which is the perfect place to relax and enjoy an exquisite lunch (and itís not just for golfers) or a few post game drinks at its open-air dining room.

Santiburi Samui Country Club is also the venue for Bangkok Airways Open golf championship. The objective of Bangkok Airways Open golf tournament is to further promote the professional game of golf among both amateur and professional golfers in Thailand. The golf tournament offers an international level of competition where players can play alongside and test their mettle against the Asia-Pacificís best golfers. The tournament will also promote tourism in Thailand; especially that of Koh Samui.

Donít worry if you donít have your own clubs as club hire is also available. So why not give it a try you may, like so many others, find yourself hooked.
