    It’s always difficult trying to select the best of anything as plenty of people are sure to disagree and there are other courses which arguably should have been on this list. Amata Springs in Bangkok, another course which hosts a huge professional event, has been excluded as it’s almost impossible to get on without a member. Perhaps Navatanee which once hosted the World Cup of Golf should be here but is now showing its age and past its best. Santiburi Chiang Rai Country Club opened for play in 1993 and was created by Robert Trent Jones Jr. Just a few kilometres from the centre of the city, this was the first golf course in Chiang Rai and it has earned rave reviews. Water plays a huge role in the layout of the course and combines with bunkers to offer the main challenge to players. The undulating fairways and fast greens make this a genuine championship quality golf course and people travel from far and wide to play a round at Santiburi Chiang Rai Country Club. Many of the fairways are treelined and over them you can see the mountains of Chiang Rai, combining to give the course a theatre-like quality. You will find Santiburi Chiang Rai Country Club is kept in good condition throughout the year and the restaurant serves a selection of traditional and international dishes. Having played one round at Santiburi Chiang Rai Country Club, you are sure to return for another.
