There are two tracks that make up the Siam Country club, the Old course was designed back in 1972 but had a total renovation in 2006 and at the same time they built a 27-hole track known as the Plantation course. Consisting of 3 nine-hole loops called Sugar Cane, Tapioca and Pineapple, American company Schmidt & Curley designed both courses and along with the stunning clubhouse and superb practice facilities, they have done a fantastic job.
I played the Tapioca and Sugar Cane nines, you can tell from the moment you step on to the first tee you are in for a great day, as there is not a blade of grass out of place. Sometimes it is hard to pick stand out holes especially when I know you will enjoy them all.
You will love the two par 3s on the Tapioca nine, but the 172 yard 7th plays to a triple green and the Par 5 4th at 581 is a great risk and reward hole over water if you want to go for the green in two, or you can play down the beautifully manicured fairway.
The Sugar Cane nine opens up with a great par 4 of 400 yards, which is all risk and reward, protected by bunkers all the way down the left of this dogleg left, you can elect to smash a drive over the lot and go for the green or hit a 3-wood and wedge in. Again you will enjoy all the holes on this nine, another two great par 3s and you will love the view on the Par 5 5th you will be confronted with no less than 20 bunkers to navigate from the tee, it is a stunning view, but donít worry they are not ALL reachable!!!
