Siam Country Club Plantation Course mis 27-hole layout is routed through rolling terrain, with distant panoramic views of Pattaya Beach, Laem Chabang, and the Gulf of Thailand. Formerly a tapioca and pineapple plantation, the property’s geological and natural characteristics include rugged ravines bisecting its fairways and mature trees.
The Plantation Course also features significant elevation changes that result in several breathtaking sea views of Gulf of Thailand. Siam Country Club Plantation course has long carries, blind shots, elevated greens, undulating fairways and greens, giant high-lipped bunkers, and shaved fringes on every hole are in play to challenge even the professional golfer.
The distance from the tips, depending on which of the 3 nines are played, is a long 7404 and 7495 yards, which makes the Siam Country Club Plantation Course one of the longest Golf courses in Thailand.
Two nines, the 3,759-yard par-36 Tapioca and the 3,645-yard par-36 Pineapple, feature Asia’s first triple green. The Tapioca’s seventh and the Pineapple’s fourth and ninth holes play to a single green measuring more than 20,000 square feet (1,916 square meters) which serves as a unique focal point on this Pattaya golf course. Number seven on the Tapioca is a par-3 of 178 yards, while numbers four and nine on the Pineapple are lengthy par-4s of 490 and 469 yards, respectively.
The Sugar Cane Course is the Siam Country Club’s third nine which plays out to the left of the driving range and staging area. The par-36, 3,736-yard layout is arguably the best of the 3 nines and includes the spectacular fifth. A par-5 with over 28 bunkers the Plantation Course’s signature hole plays long uphill with a split fairway. While inviting, the right side fairway is in play, but makes for a very difficult and long carry to have any chance to reaching the green in regulation.
Practice facilities include a grass driving range complete with pitching area, sand bunker, and large practice putting greens are available for golfers wishing to practice prior to play. Riding carts are compulsory on this up-and-down hilly tract. However, carts are restricted to cart path only, except on the aforementioned two-fairway Sugar Cane fifth hole.
