    Click image for larger version  Name:	Santiburi-Golf.jpg Views:	0 Size:	250.4 KB ID:	1485

    Another Pirapon Namatra-designed course and the only 18-hole course in Koh Samui. The course meanders across the foothills with fantastic views over the surrounding countryside, the sea and the islands beyond. The course is difficult and the back nine is especially challenging with many blind tee shots to narrow jungle-lined fairways and some quite dramatic elevation changes. The greens, although a generous size, are also quite challenging and often have several levels which makes finding the right level essential to score well. The course is dotted with the native coconut trees which often block your path to the green so you need to place your shots carefully. You won’t be needing your driver too much on the course as caution is the order of the day and even the most ardent walkers will be glad of the cart as this is a very strenuous course to walk. The clubhouse is located in a commanding position with 360 degree views of the course, the beaches and sea beyond and is a perfect place to enjoy a snack and something cold as you watch the sunset. Average practice facilities and a reasonable pro-shop.
    • Location: North coast of Koh Samui
    • Birdies: Complimentary shuttle bus rides to and from some hotels, no handicap requirement for beginners
    • Bogeys: No hazard markers so you have to decide before you start how you will treat balls lost in the jungle.
    • Favorite Hole: The short par-3 6th hole which drops more than 40 meters from tee to a green with a severe drop-off around the back.
