Springfield Royal Country Club

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 1993

Springfield Royal Country Club (part of the Springfield Village Golf & Spa) boasts 27 excellent holes of championship golf. Here you'll find one of Jack Nicklaus's earliest designs in Asia, comprising three nine-hole loops ... the Mountain-nine (A), Lake-nine (B) and Valley-nine (C).

Of the three excellent nine-hole loops, the Lake course arguably has the strongest holes. The fabulous par-5 3rd, testing par-4 4th and water-flanked par-3 5th holes are all played around a good-sized lake, where views onto the ever-present jungle-clad Phetchaburi hills seem to be at their most captivating.

Among many other wonderful golf holes, the par-3 8th (Lake) is beautifully framed by stylish earthmounding and indigenous trees behind the green. The backdrop for the risk-reward par-5 9th (Lake), includes the pointed tops of the resort buildings, which you can admire while lining up your approach to the island green.

The Mountain course, laid out as a figure of eight, has the least amount of water in play, but it too is a thoroughly absorbing and challenging layout. Its hallmarks are plenty of stylish bunkering, large sandy waste areas, gently rolling mounds and trees lining several fairways.

Exuding a tighter feel than the original two nines, the Valley-nine also includes threatening water hazards, especially in its middle section. As on the Mountain-Lake layout, an intimidating array of bunkers are also present, along the fairways and fiercely defending the greens.

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 five wins out of her last five starts on the LPGA Tour. Winning the Chevron Championship also brought the second major championship win of her career.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda's five wins in five starts, when he placed second at the Houston Open. Either side of that, he won The Arnold Palmer, The Players, and then The Masters and The Heritage.

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.
