Opened in 2001, this interesting place for a spot of golf is conveniently located in the centre of Bangkok. However, once inside, it is easy to forget you are in the centre of such a busy city. It is well designed so that it appears quiet, calm and green. Whether professional or merely a beginner you will feel welcome.
The driving range is made up of two storeys, each floor with 22 bays and all equipped with automatic machines to dispense the balls onto the tee (which provide a lot of amusement in themselves). Every time we have been it has been quite busy with both foreigners and Thais.
To aid practice there are markers at 50, 75, 100, 160, 200 and 230 yards as well as bunkers for putting practice. Please be aware that during midday you will be hitting the balls into direct sunlight.
There is also plenty of room to sit and relax with good food and reasonable priced drinks options (large beer 120 baht, smoothies 80 baht). If you’re not wanting to play and simply want to watch your friends you have a good view from the table. Staff are extremely efficient and helpful.
There is also an equipment shop upstairs where you can purchase golfing equipment or you can also enquire about lessons.
A great and cheap way to spend an afternoon, letting off steam in Bangkok.
