Banyan golf course
Banyan golf course is the newest in the Hua Hin area having opened towards the end of 2008. Located in the mountains just South of Hua Hin the course, wherever possible, follows the natural contours of the existing terrain and there are magnificent views of the Gulf of Thailand from several locations as you go round. Combined with spectacular mountainous scenery and lush surroundings, the course is visually stunning.
It is a bit open at the moment, but will play tighter as newly planted trees grow. The caddies were pretty inexperienced at the start, but their quality is fast improving. In excellent condition, the course is a welcome addition to Hua Hin's ever-increasing number of golfing locations. Perhaps one gripe is that you will be charged for a caddie cart regardless of whether you use one or not.
The clubhouse is constructed with Thai teak and includes a pro shop and restaurant. Unfortunately, it's really facing in the wrong direction for you to see much of the course and it does get hot. Banyan Estates will also offer the opportunitiy to purchase condominiums overlooking the fairways.
