The Royal Hua Hin

Designed by O.J. Robins this course was the first in Thailand. Parkland layout with wide fairways makes this track a pleasure to play.
Green fee = THB 2000.

Founded during the reign of H.R.H. King Rama VI in 1924. The Royal Hua Hun Golf Course was commissioned by H.R.H. Prince Kampaengpetch, and designed by a Scottish railway engineer, Mr. A. O. Robins.
This is a par 72, 18-hole course. The fairways-Zoysia, and the greens-Zoysia. This golf course is less than 1 kilometers from down town Hua Hin.

The fairways are bordered by mature trees, which provide for some shady lies after a "wayward" shot. Natural hazards include raiding monkey troops from the jungle, who are noted for their ball stealing antics. Other than on the first and second holes, there is no other real water hazards.
