KOH CHANG GOLF COURSE

To keep expectations low. This Par 3, 9 holes Golf Course is great to practice the short game, having fun in exiting surroundings, but not more. The developers of Siam Royal View housing project have now completed construction of the island’s only golf course of any description. Of course it isn’t a full links course, but is a more relaxing 9 holes of pitch and putt. The course is built in the centre of the development and surrounded by water. This not only cools the air but also adds to the challenge as a couple of greens are only accessible by bridge. The signature hole, Hole 3 has the tee and pin on two separate islands linked by a footbridge. One big plus is that if you do shank your drive / pitch then the water in the surrounding lagoon is safe for swimming and also pretty shallow, so you can just jump in and retrieve it – thus saving yourself the 20 baht lost ball fee.
