27/7 Moo7 Thambol Pang-thru Amphur Thamuang Kanchanaburi 71110,Thailand
Mission Hills Country Club Kanchanaburi rests on gently sloping hillsides near the River Kwai where palm-lined fairways flirt with water hazards, sand bunkers, and vast waste bunkers, a Nicklaus trademark. Jack Nicklaus also designed two other Mission Hills tracks in Thailand, one in Khao Yai and one in Phuket. Only accomplished players are likely to play to their handicaps on this course. Around the well-bunkered greens, thick Bermuda grass should be avoided if at all possible. Five of the holes offer dual fairway options, giving different approach options to the greens. The course has a selection of five well-spaced sets of tees for players of all abilities.
The par five holes are among the best holes on the course. The 8th for example is long and very well bunkered down the left side and center of the fairway, with a beautiful stretch of water and reeds down the right side from tee to green. Hole 12 is another long one, this time with a wide creek splitting the fairway from tee to green and a double fairway that makes you choose left or right from the tee. The 17th is a par four that tests you with an approach shot to an island green. With jungle-clad hills and rural countryside all around, this is a picturesque Kanchanaburi golf course.
Spend a little time in the large timber clubhouse and relax after your round but if you want more than very average accommodations you may want to retreat to a hotel nearby. Book this course now through Golf Orient or let us include it in a River Kwai golf package for you and your group.
