Riverdale Golf Club

Riverdale-Golf-Club-Bespoke-Thailand-Travel-1Located next to the Bangkok Golf Club in the northern suburbs of Bangkok, 30 minutes from downtown, the 18-hole Riverdale Golf Club is a premium golf course with lots of variety. Although one of the newer courses, it is gaining a reputation for its hole placement, great greens and all round playability. Riverdale is also noted for its excellent clubhouse and restaurant.

Pockmarked by artificial lakes and hills, the 7,000-yard Riverdale, founded in 2010, was designed by John Morrow and Al Tikkanen of Red Mountain fame. Although an open course, it boasts a choice of tee locations, rolling fairways, well placed bunkers and elevated greens. Players can opt to take on the back nine holes first.

The luxury clubhouse at Riverdale Golf Club overlooks the 1st and 18th holes and has all the charm of a private club. Spread over two floors, it comes with well-appointed locker rooms and a pro shop, along with a high quality restaurant and ample parking that can handle tournaments.

The clubhouse restaurant serves up a variety of Asian dishes, including excellent Thai and Japanese food, together with Western comfort foods. There is plenty of space along with a couple of private dining rooms. Wat San Chao Floating Market and the Boat Library of Pathum Thani are nearby.
