Silky Oak Country Club

3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.

Est. 2010

Silky Oak Country Club was the third addition to the St Andrews 2000 group of golf courses. It sits directly alongside the famous St Andrews 2000 layout, and to the east of the Rayong Green Valley Country Club course. The name Silky Oak comes from a native Australian tree (grevillea robusta), much planted throughout the course.

Silky Oak did not attract the attention of a big name overseas designer, but was instead the creation of the St Andrews 2000 staff. It offers golfers a supposedly easier-going examination than its siblings, with wider fairways in some places and larger greens to aim at. You'll still need a decent short game to score well on this out-and-back layout.

Did you know?

Silky Oak CC is named after a tree native to the east coast of Australia (Grevillea robusta), which has been planted throughout the golf course. It is not closely related to true oaks (Quercus). Silky Oak (sometimes called silk oak or Australian silver oak) was once widely used for window frames, given its resistance to wood rot.

Rayong Green Valley, St Andrews2000 and Silky Oak share the same clubhouse, in which you will find a spectacular variety of international cuisine available, including Thai, Japanese, Chinese, German, Italian, and more.

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.
