Soi Mu Ban Ngam Charoen 2, Pattaya City, Amphoe Bang Lamung, Chang Wat Chon Buri 20150, Thailand
The course will be designed by IMG Golf Course Design, one of the world renowned golf course architect and expert in world sport and event managements, and will regenerate and enhance the property worthy of future domestic and international investment. Strict environment cares, esthetic beauty, challenge and friendly play are the emphasis of the Waterside design with the absolute distinct differences from the famous Old Course and Plantation.
Siam Country Club Waterside is another championship course from this prestigious group and sure to become one of the icons of the local golfing scene. As its name suggest you will encounter many lakes, creeks and other water hazards to challenge your shot making.
The courses is very open with little protection from the prevailing winds which does keep you cool but does add to the difficulty level on some holes. Very few mature trees around the course and it will take a couple of years before the newly planted ones mature and this will add greatly to the look and feel of the course.
Some of the holes worth noting include the 600 yard long par-5 17th which is a dogleg with the option of playing over the water to reach the green in two whilst the high handicappers can opt for a layup and still make par providing you can avoid the deep ravine in front of the green.
The finishing hole can be a card wrecker as you skirt the large man-made lake with the prevailing wind blowing into your face. You should be happy to walk off with a par here!
