“Far to expensive”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

Not even as good as a public course in Britain needs a lot of water which they do not give it in terrible condition and they charge you 90 for the round buggy and club rental and the clubs are so old and haggered save your money and wait till you can play a better course with better clubs the only good thing about this course is some of the views that is all .

“Great views but not well maintained”
Reviewed 7 December 2013

Went around 8:30am to play 9 holes & were the first ones there. The course is hilly & fairways were very narrow. Lots of jungle on the side so any stray shot will result in a lost ball. Overall, not very well maintained. That said, significantly cheaper than the Santiburi golf course. Views at some holes were spectacular. But the course was not very accessible - drive was extremely steep involving some dirt roads. Would highly not recommend driving there on a rainy day/getting there by scooter

“Great course but a little pricey”
Reviewed 27 August 2013 via mobile

I played 9 holes yesterday and the course is in a great location with amazing views

I had to hire clubs as hadnt planned on playing which cost 500 baht, this would be ok but the clubs were very old with my 7 iron a blade club and my putter rusty
I also had to rent a buggy for 500 and then buy balls n tees so for 9 holes it all came to 2100 baht

The course itself wasn't in great condition, imagine an average council course in the uk and you get the idea, you pay for the views more than anything which are great and it's definitely worth it if you can afford it just to say you played but I feel they would have been busier with prices a little cheaper

Great to say I played though

“Not your average golf course”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

Set in the hills of Koh Samui, this is a tight and challenging golf course. If you are an average golfer, your woods will need to stay in the bag, as the course has been set up so that you need to think your way around rather than getting a long drive off the tee. Views are spectacular, but for the cost of a round here, plus club hire, and the 4wd to get there( it was almost 3000thb), I'm sure that you would prefer to sit on the beach and have a few beers. But if you really like a challenge, then this is a great challenging course to play.

“Amazing course”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

This is a stunning course. We played here with a fairly large group and had an amazing time, none of us are serious golfers but we hacked our way through the course and were blown away by the beauty of the course and the stunning views of the island. The holes are fairly short but quite challenging, the course is quite well maintained and fun to drive around. They also provided us with some eskys on the golf buggies to keep our beer cold which was much appreciated! If you're a serious player I can understand that you might have some complaints about the course but if you're a casual player looking to have a fun hit-around then you won't be disappointed.
