Thai Country Club

Thai Country Club is a joint venture between the Phataraprasit Group and the The Hong Kong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited. The Phataraprasit Group is a Thai-owned business conglomerate with extensive business interests in the north of Thailand, primarily in the distilling industry. The group expanded its interests into banking, ceramics, property development, investment, and retailing.

The Hong Kong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited was originally incorporated on the Hong Kong stock exchange. The principle business of the company is the ownership and management of luxury hotels, such as the Peninsula Group, prime residential and commercial property and club management and consultancy services.

Designed under US PGA international standards by Denis Griffiths, at that time president of the world-renowned American Society of Golf Course Architects, opened in December 1996. The design adapts to everyday member use up to a very tough challenge for major international tournaments featuring the finest players in the world. The 7,157-yard course, from the professional tees, was tested during the 1997 Asian Honda Classic won by Tiger Woods.

The high-tech computer designed greens make for many interesting pin placements. The entire course features immaculate conditions, a neo-classic design and alkali variety from hole to hole, along with an abundance of water and sand hazards. The course is a constant test of one’s golfing proficiency.
