Majestic Creek Country Club
Majestic Creek Golf Club and Resort (1995)
Designer: Dr Sukitti Klangvisai
Course: 27 Holes Par 72
Majestic Creek is one of the newest courses to open in the Hua Hin area, and the journey towards the course offers rural views of Thai life. Small farms producing sugar cane, pineapple, bananas and mangos line the route out to the course.
Majestic offers superb golf holes in an exciting layout. The opening hole has a wealth of potential problems, and decisions have to be made. An easy par four for those of us who want to take the conventional route, or if you are the adventurous golfer, then trying to cut the dog-leg corners will really test your skill. The hazards of the 1st hole will never be far away, and precedes a succession of exciting and equally demanding holes.
Mountain side location, Majestic offers natural hazards as well as the local designers own input, and will offer a round full of excitement and challenge to any golfer.
The club house offers all the facilities that one could wish for, and a personal escort is even at hand to take you to the first hole for tee off.
Palm Hills Golf Club and Residence
Designer: Max Waxler
Course: 18 holes Par 72
Palm Hills was the first of a new generation of courses to open in 1991. And was the first course in Hua Hin to stage the Thailand World Pro Am in 1993 gaining much praise from the British PGA.
Only 10 minutes from downtown Hua Hin you can experience the rolling and gently undulating fairways provide Palm Hills with it’s own individual identity. The only exception to the gentle terrain is on the 10th hole, where a semi-blind tee shot is encountered from the side of an imposing limestone mountain. Water is also a hazard especially on the 2nd, 8th, 11th and 14th holes. “toppers” beware!
Being a “new generation” course, Palm Hills has great clubhouse facilities. Thai-style design with American-style facilities for the golfer who requires more than just a round, the Country Club offers a large swimming pool, Tennis, badminton & squash courts, and a fully equipped Gymnasium for the really energetic. Palm Hills is now a booming real-estate location, offering some of the best investment opportunities in Hua Hin

Springfield Royal Country Resort
This course was designed by Jack Nicklaus, and opened in 1993. It has gained a reputation of being one of the finest courses in Thailand, and is now established as a golfers’ must, while in Hua Hin or Cha-am.
The course its self has been designed to meet the needs of a championship course, but maintains an enjoyable challenge for golfers of all standards. Starting with a par 4 the first hole is a gentle 367 yards from the white tee, and on appearance looks to be quite simple. Hopes can quickly fade, as the well protected green can prove difficult and requires accuracy. Overall with the cleverly devised layout, views over streams, lakes & the gulf of Thailand, you will find this course very addictive.

The interior is beautifully finished in polished marble and granite, and portrays a feeling of opulence associated with grand palaces.
