Where2Golf says: 

Summit Windmill Golf Club: With its relative close proximity to downtown Bangkok, Summit Windmill is always a popular course, as well as one that provides a good golfing challenge in very pleasant parkland surroundings. Water is a relatively constant companion throughout the round, starting with a tee-to-green lake that flanks the leftside of the long par-5 1st hole. Exactly the same concept is repeated coming down the opposite bank of the lake at the 18th. In between these opening and closing par-5's, Nick Faldo's often innovative design provides plenty of nicely contoured, good-width fairways to aim at, as well as a brace of excellent quality, water-protected par-3's. One of the best of these is the island green 12th. A variety of palm trees give the holes excellent definition and the course a characteristically tropical feel. With little rough to worry about, you can concentrate on avoiding the water, getting your ball onto the nicely elevated greens and coping with their many subtle slopes and borrows. Some sizeable villas occupy plots around parts of the course perimeter, but they are never close enough to be remotely within range - no matter how wayward you might be. Although located within the city suburbs, there is a definite oasis quality about Summit Windmill. A great place to escape to and enjoy the pleasures of tropical, parkland golf - and a well presented Faldo layout.
