Where2Golf says: 

Muang Kaew Golf: Like its near neighbour, Summit Windmill (located on the other side of the Bangna-Trad highway), this is another well-presented and excellent layout, which will thoroughly test your game in pleasant parkland surroundings. The good-width fairways are often lined with eucalyptus trees, but its around the greens that the fun really starts. These often elevated putting surfaces are heavily defended by stylish, deep, high-faced bunkers and immaculately maintained grassy run-off areas that will soundly test your chipping and putting from off the green. Water threatens on just about every front nine hole, with small lakes, ditches and even a canal (klong in Thai) to be reckoned with. There is less water on the also relatively flat back-nine, although the blind drive at the par-5 13th, which requires a shot over the corner of the club's "caged" approach road, is as big a knee-trembler as the drive at the 17th on St Andrews Old Course. It’s a shame that the new Bangkok Eastern Ring Road (elevated) now slices through part of the back-nine, but it doesn't overly detract from Schmidt's strong design and absorbing layout.

Did you know?

The "Golfing Oasis in Bangkok" was certainly an apt description of Muang Kaew in days gone by. Unfortunately an elevated section of Bangkok's Eastern Outer Ring Road (route 9) will now pass very close to the golf course. The course will remain a fine and well-presented layout, although some traffic noise will now affect a few holes.

Tournaments:
The American Express formerly known as the Desert Classic, and for many years played as the Bob Hope Desert Classic, will once again be decided on the Pete Dye designed Stadium course at PGA West (Jan 16-19).
The Players Championship:  for the 39th time, TPC Sawgrass, another iconic Pete Dye design, will host The Players Championship for one of the richest first prizes in world golf (March 12-15).
 
Who's Who: 
Pete Dye:  one of the greatest golf course architects of this or any generation passes away aged 94. His contribution to golf course design, and the legacy he leaves is immense.
Jack Nicklaus:  like Pete Dye a native of Ohio, actually started his golf course design career working together with Dye. In 1967 Dye asked Nicklaus to input to his design for The Golf Club in Columbus, Ohio. Two years later they worked together on the revered Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina.
