Royal Hua Hin Golf Course

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

Est. 1924

Royal Hua Hin Golf Course: Here at historic Royal Hua Hin, your round starts right beside the town's railway station (on the Bangkok - Hat Yai line). This starting point is not perhaps too surprising; the course's designer was a Scottish railroad engineer.

In terms of golf course design, don't however think that a visit to Thailand's oldest championship golf course will simply be a trip down memory lane. Your game will most certainly be tested here, with several tightish tree-lined fairways, many nicely doglegging holes and relatively small circular greens to hit, greens which are typically elevated.

The bunkering is fairly modest and the course condition might not be as manicured as some in the Hua Hin region, but Royal Hua Hin has some very pleasant and enjoyable features in its treasure chest. Monkey business is very likely at the uphill par-4 13th. Alongside this fairway small macaque monkeys enjoy the bordering vegetation; they may also take a shine to the odd golf ball or two.

A pair of small owls keep watch on proceedings just beyond the green of the par-4 7th (get the caddies to show you the back of the large tree to the left of the green, where the owls are usually perched). At the par-3 14th (the signature hole) and the par-5 3rd you can see temples clinging to the sides of tree-clad hills.

While one side of the course is played under an attractive tree-clad rocky hill, the other will provide occasional glimpses of the ocean from the two slightly more elevated sections of the course. Historic, a bit rustic, but most of all, a pleasing and testing course.

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.
