He took it upon himself to fulfill a dream and build a facility in Bangkok to attract international, championship golf to Thailand.  He chose both the flooded rice-paddies of Klong Khum, 20 kilometers from downtown Bangkok, and shaped a golf course fit for the 23rd World Cup Tournament in 1975. It has been said by many that the Navatenee Golf Course and that event helped shape the development of golf in Asia. In 1997, the architect was invited back to update the facility and shortly thereafter, the 6,902-yard track was rated by Golf Digest as the best golf course in the Kingdom.
