Par 5 10th through the dunes Par 3 11th so close to an ace Small long green at the 12th

US Open and USPGA Champion David Graham and architect Gary Pank designed the two 18-Hole championship tracks and it was a design I really enjoyed. There are four loops of nine (A) American Wood, (B) British Links, (C) Crystal Spring and (D) Dunes.

You can mix and match any of the nines and itís a track that you will want to go back and play. I played the C & D loops and standing on the first tee of the 465-yard par 4 dogleg left with water on the right, you knew you were in for a treat. There are four tees you can choose to play from, each offering a good test of golf.

The par 3 5th at 138 yards is a great little hole over water, but donít be fooled, the green has a ridge that runs through it and if you are on the wrong section you will be doing very well to get down in two putts. This is followed by a great little par 4 with water all the way down the left and another beautiful looking par 3 8th, you play down from an elevated tee to a green thatís protected by no less than eight bunkers.

I loved the Dunes loop and its hard to pick out individual holes as I think itís a great nine, but the finishing four holes are great fun and well designed holes to give you a good chance at finishing with a good score. The Thailand Open was held here in 2010, which is all credit to the course and the people who run this very friendly golf club.
