Siam Country Club Waterside

0_main pictureThe aptly named Siam Country Club Waterside sits between the Plantation course and Old Course of the Siam Country set and is the newest of the three. Built by IMG in 2014, Waterside features a sloping terrain, stunning foliage and lots of water. Service is excellent here, with knowledgeable caddies and a great pro shop.

Straightforward holes run across the 7,407-yard course, including the mammoth 17th (at 600 yards). The waterside is pockmarked by huge lakes running through the centre, connected by creeks, and is finished in paspalum fairways and Bermuda greens. The 18th runs up to the stunning clubhouse, which is rightly modern and boasts a sweeping view back over the valley.

There’s a beautiful terrace from which to appreciate the course and practise areas, which include a huge 18-hole putting course and practise green. Inside the Siam Country Club Waterside clubhouse there are quality changing rooms, a useful pro shop and a very good restaurant. Foods from both Thailand and the West can be ordered in here.

Visitors are welcomed at Country Club Waterside and mostly come in from the Pattaya area, which is around 30 minutes away. Intending golfers can also get here from Suvarnabhumi International Airport in around 90 minutes.
