Soi Dao Highland
SOI DAO HIGHLAND GOLF CLUB
The Soi Dao Highland Golf Club is a jewel of a golf course located deep in the southeast region of the Kingdom. Rimmed by the beautiful Khao Soi Dao mountain chain. This track gives new definition to diversity: it’s a botanical garden, a wildlife sanctuary, a children’s zoo, a meteorological station, a nature trail and an invigorating asylum for the golfer.
Designed in 1995, the gently rolling fairways and slanting greens stretch for 7,162 yards. “When the course was built,” according to LtG. Bharawee Janlekha, “no damage was done to nature. Not one tree fell down. They were all moved and replanted by tractor.”
Recreational: “One of the best golf courses in the country, and unquestionably the best value. You just have to get there!” “Don’t miss this. A night in the quaint resort and dinner on the patio will be good for your stressed soul.”
Professional: “An excellent course. Top 10.” “I brought 50 people here to play and saw 51 smiles.” “It’s special and underplayed.”
