Banyan Golf Course was designed by Golf East Company, who recently undertook and a large renovation project of the world famous Blue Canyon Country Club in Phuket.
The golf course was created out of existing pineapple plantation, and set amongst two ranges of mountain, which offer stunning views of the local countryside, and of the Gulf.
The course itself will offer four tee arrears, which takes care of the 7030 and 5310 yards of the course. The main designers of the course set out to use many of the natural contours, and tress, that the existing countryside had to offer. The choice of zoysia grass, which is native to the area, was used for the fairways and rough.
There are few lakes on the course as the design company didn’t want to mimic other traditional Thai courses.
The clubhouse, pro-shop and restaurant are set out to look like traditional Thai buildings. The design company came across the teak building originally in Petchburi, it was bought, dismantled and taken to the golf course, where it was re-erected to make the clubhouse, pro-shop and restaurant. The design company spent many hours walking the layout of the course, to make sure that the end result would be something to be very pleased with, and I must say they have over achieved this.
After your game you can enjoy a fantastic meal at the 5* restaurant and bar, which offer fantastic views of the 9th & 18th greens, also the 1st & 10th tees.
Transportation to and from Banyan Golf Course is included in the price.
A must play for every golf holiday.
