The Golf Guide to the Top Courses
Where2Golf says: 

The Old course at Siam Country Club benefitted from a major refurbishment in 2007, catapulting it into the top echelon of golf courses in Thailand. What had always been a pleasurable course to play became a beautiful and immaculately maintained layout, with stunning fairway and greenside bunkering its main feature.

The holes on each nine descend gently downhill from the stylishly refurbished clubhouse, quickly arriving at the lowest part of the course, before moving gently uphill to the back of the property. From there each nine again winds its way back downhill, then finally up again to the clubhouse. The lower mid-section of the course is where you'll encounter the only water hazards, created by a wide, lily-covered creek that runs across the course. It comes into play at the 2nd and 8th holes, and again at 15, 16 and 17 on the back-nine.

Several parallel running holes are separated by a good width of semi-rough and a pleasant line of trees. The often dome-shaped greens, are accompanied by some seriously steep-run-offs, ensuring your short game skills are tested to the full. With no real estate in sight, and a pleasant mix of rural and wooded environments beyond the course, Siam Country Club is undoubtedly one of Thailand's best quality layouts, worthy of the top-level professional events it attracts.

Siam Country Club now offers four excellent championship courses. The original and much revered Old course opened for play in 1971. Located just a few kilometres to the east is the Plantation course, which dates from 2008. The most recent additions are the Waterside course (2014), located between the Old and Plantation layouts, and the Rolling Hills course (2020), which sits just below the Old course.
