Royal Lakeside Golf Club

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

Est. 1993

Royal Lakeside Golf Club: Although located only half a kilometre from the wide Bang Pa Kong River, from the course you will not see anything of this mighty waterway (which flows down from the Khao Yai region into the Bight of Bangkok). Instead, a 20-metre wide lagoon, which encircles the course, is constantly in view. The lagoon provides a useful buffer zone, protecting the villas on its opposite bank from any wildly wayward tee shots.

There is quite an open feel to Royal Lakeside, created by good-width fairways and light semi-rough that makes ball-finding relatively easy. The golf course is uniformly flat, with only a few ripples of earthmounding to the sides of the fairways. However, this doesn't mean the golf is uninteresting. Plenty of palms, eucalyptus and many other tree varieties, combine with an array of flowers, shrubs and occasional streams, to create a garden-like quality to many parts of the course.

The main hazards to avoid are expansive bunkers though relatively shallow bunkers, which line many fairways and protect the greens - not least the profusely bunkered par-3's. Water hazards also need factoring into your course management, whether in the form of ditches crossing some fairways or the 360-degree perimeter lagoon.

From the 9th tee you will see a small lighthouse marking the entrance to Royal Lakeside's marina, while the par-4 5th gives a wonderful view of another impressive structure - the dome topped clubhouse. The dome is as impressive as the quality of service inside this distinctive clubhouse.

Did you know?

Royal Lakeside is very popular with Japanese golfers, especially at weekends. The palatial, dome-topped clubhouse could be a distant cousin of the clubhouse found in England's Stoke Park Club (where James Bond famously played his match against Goldfinger, in the film of that name).

Tournaments

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

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.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
