Gassan Legacy Golf Club

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 2005

Gassan Legacy Golf Club (formerly known as Gassan Lake City) is home to the second of a challenging triumvirate of Gassan courses, developed in the mid-2000s to the southeast of Chiang Mai, in the province of Lamphun. All three are designed by Gassan's owner Pravit Raeng-Po, and all three bring water into play to a very considerable extent.

The Lake City course, re-opened in 2014 as the Legacy course following improvements by Lee Schmidt. This good-length layout, at just over 7000 yards from the tips, contains plenty of water hazards and distinctive bunkering, something common to all three Gassan layouts. Multiple island-green par-3s, right-angle doglegging holes, double-doglegs, carries over water, lakeside fairways and some flanked by water on both sides are all in the mix. Big hitters may relish the driveable par-4s, but, as on most holes, approach shots to the greens will often demand pin-point accuracy to avoid the water.

The five par-3s are all played across water. The good-length 7th (183 yds) and tiny 15th (97 yds) are where you'll need to hit island greens. Following the second of two double-doglegging par-5s at 17, the par-3 18th is played to a bunker defended peninsula green with water on three sides.
