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.

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.
