Bangpra International Golf Course in Pattaya
Bangpra International Golf Course, Golfing in Pattaya
Like people in many other places in the world and Asia in particular, Thais are avid golfers. Bangpra International Golf Course is one of the nation’s finer courses, located in Pattaya and has been offering fantastic fairways and greens for over 50 years. The course has 18 holes and a total par of 72. From the furthest tees, the total distance of the course is over 7000 yards in length.
In its earliest days, the course had only 9 holes. Over time, a further 9 were added and the facilities were continually upgraded until the 50th anniversary celebrations in 2007 saw the grand opening of the complete renovation of 18 holes and an upgraded, more elegant clubhouse. Greens fees for visitors can start as low as 1600 baht for a 9-hole round on a weekday afternoon. Extras including caddy services, cart rentals, shoe rentals or club rentals are all available and very competitively priced as well.
In addition to the course, the complex offers a gourmet restaurant and a swimming pool. The area itself is beautiful, with the nearby sea providing a nice breeze and greatly improving the experience. Also watch out for the monkeys in the car park. They are always great fun!
