Path to the Island green 15th The 17th with its tough green The pagoda hut at the 4th hole

I really enjoyed this region of Thailand and I found the climate perfect golfing weather, it was hot without being that uncomfortable sticky heat, which was great for shorts and polo shirts. Set in a valley and surrounded by the mountain ranges in the heart of the San Kampaeng natural forests that bristles with some amazing colours, itís a stunning setting and course designer Ron Garl has produced a track that complements its majestic surroundings. It can be a beast of a track from the black tees at 7,541, its hardly short from the front menís tees coming in at 6,814, with a set of tee boxes between the two.

But its far from being a sluggers track, it opens up with a couple of gentle par 4s with water featuring on both, with tricky greens. There are two great par 3s and two stunning par 5s with the 4th being over 600 yards no matter what box you tee it up from. The front nine is rounded off with a very strategic par 4 where you navigate over water twice.

The back nine keeps the pace going and the holes just get better and better, with the Sawgrass inspired island green 151 yard 15th, being only one of the highlights. You will walk off the 563-yard par 5 18th knowing you have played a great course set in beautiful surroundings.
