20 km E of Pattaya City.
The Plantation course at Siam Country Club, Pattaya is another of the club's highly-rated layouts. It comprises the Sugar Cane, Tapioca and Pineapple nines, each characterised by nicely undulating terrain, an abundance of stylish grass-lipped bunkering, and natural woodland and forest beyond the course. As is the case with all four of the club's courses, the Plantation layout is not burdened by real estate on its boundaries, and so creates an enjoyably natural golf experience.
The 27-hole Plantation course, has, like Siam's Old course, seen its fair share of top level tournament play. Exactly a year after opening in 2008, it hosted the LPGA Thailand event, won by the then world No.1 Lorena Ochoa.
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.

Both the Old and Plantation courses have hosted numerous top-level events, not least the Thailand Open and the LPGA Tour's "LPGA Thailand" tournament (see our Tournaments section >by Venue >Siam CC).
