The Santiburi golf course is away from the excitement, heat and bustle of busy Bankok. Set amongst the Chiang Rai Mountains it offers golf all year round and is especially memorable when played in the early misty winter mornings. The course designed by Robert Trent-Jones II and opened in 1992 is a 7,034 yard, par 72 golfing delight.
A split personality course, it starts with a smooth, gently rolling valley floor, encompassing an irregular lake and tributary streams, lots of well established trees and grassy knolls. This then climbs into a hillside landscape, a steeper walk with more rugged bushes and rocky outcrops as you progress.
Santiburi Golf course is based around a series of hills and flat valley floor containing a lake through which the front nine holes are played. From here you meander around the hills and valleys back to the pagoda style clubhouse perched high on the hillside with commanding views all around.
Bermuda grassed, fairways are wide to start with, giving the amateur a chance but narrow the nearer the pin, increasing the challenge for experienced golfers. Greens are of Tifdwarf grass and have been carefully planned with bunkers, water and strategically places grassy clusters to encourage tactical play.
Golfers traditionally stay in downtown Chiang Rai; here the golfer can relax with the advantage of a great choice of restaurants and exciting night life to discover.
When booking the course it is always recommended making advance reservations, as the course is very popular the best times are quickly filled
