St Andrew’s 2000 Golf Club
This long links course, between Pattaya and Rayong, is somewhat exotic and very challenging. Stretching for well over 7,700 yards, it is also one of Thailand’s longest and is for lower handicap players. Along with the great course are an impressive clubhouse and a quality resort with full amenities and top hospitality.
Par for St Andrew’s 2000 Golf Club is a whopping 74, with some very long, tough holes (800 yards plus), many of which feature high tees and landing zones and tight fairways peppered with numerous bunkers. The course takes on a Scottish links feel and is around 40 minutes from Pattaya – closer to Rayong.
Views along the course are stunning and both clubhouse and hotel resort look out over St Andrew’s. There are practise areas here and plenty of facilities indoors for the whole family. These include a golf simulator, various video games for the kids and a snooker room, while karaoke and good Asian eating is also on hand.
Visitors can also enjoy a swim or a game of tennis at St Andrew’s 2000 Golf Club and there is also horse riding and Thai massage at the hotel spa. The resort hotel overlooks the golf course and staying here makes for a nice break from Pattaya.
