Siam Country Club Pattaya Plantation
Siam Country Club Pattaya Plantation was simultaneously built at the same time during the renovation of Siam Country Club Pattaya Old Course, and opened in April 2008. Designed by Lee Schmidt of Schmidt & Curley, the Plantation is a 27-hole golf course and meant to have a clear distinction from the Old Course. Fairways, bunkers and greens are uniquely different from any other golf courses in Thailand. The routing sits high on rolling hills of the natural terrain meandering mountains and natural creeks with a panoramic view of Pattaya. Strong wind is one of the natural character and part of the challenge but the breeze makes the hottest day more pleasurable.
The “PLANTATION” name was given in the honor of the historic Sugar Cane, Tapioca, and Pineapple plantations, and each nine-hole is named accordingly.
One year after the Plantation open, it hosted the Honda LPGA Thailand 2009 in February, a testimony to quality and service of the golf course. From 2009 onward, the Plantation has been awarded the “Best Maintained Golf Course in Asia Pacific.”
A unique architectural “Bird Wings” clubhouse sets on top of the hills. Views of the golf course and its surround undulating terrain can be seen from almost every corner of the clubhouse. From the front balcony, view of the only “Triple Greens,” in Asia, 3 greens of 3 golf holes occupying almost 3,000 square meters is a memorable sight. Inside the clubhouse, ample space and modern style decorations of the locker rooms, restaurant, and pro-shop together with well trained staffs is second to none.
Whether the Old Course or Plantation, the distinction is obvious both in the clubhouse and golf course styles. However, the same philosophy of qualities and services are identical. The addition of a new 18-hole Siam Country Club Pattaya Waterside will showcase another style of the same philosophy. The Waterside will open in early 2014.
