4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Alpine Golf Club: For a long time the standard bearer for top-rated golf in Thailand, it is easy to fall for the undoubted charms of this excellent layout. All manner of trees, bushes and shrubs, including a wonderful variety of palm, mahogany and cork trees, flourish within this exotic and undulating parkland layout.

It is hard to imagine that Alpine was originally created from rice paddies - as flat as can be. In sharp contrast, the golf course is now home to significant elevation changes and a wonderfully rolling undulating design. Water is still much in evidence, along with beach-style bunkers, which most notably protect the front of the par-3 3rd and 12th holes.

Alpine is not for the faint-hearted. Some of the drives you'll need to make feel as tight as driving through the streets of downtown Bangkok. Finding the often water-protected greens is also no mean achievement. The 7th and 11th holes for example, are both played to what are in essence island greens, connected to each other by a small sliver of land. With these relatively small putting surfaces to aim at, it is a mesmerising fact that Tiger Woods actually eagled the 555-yard par-5 7th on his way to winning the 2000 Johnnie Walker Classic - wonders will never cease.

Alpine is clearly a layout that will test the best, but also one that is full of wonderfully picturesque holes, lots of lush vegetation and, for the Bangkok area, an extravagance of undulations and "alpine" earthmounding.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
