Golf Adventure at the River Kwai Golf Tours

Private Tour 5 days / 4 nights - Bangkok - Kanchnaburi (River Kwae) - Bangkok

1. Day: Bangkok – Floating Market – River Kwae
Early departure from your hotel in Bangkok in western direction to the famous Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. Later you proceed to Kanchanaburi. Lunch at a local restaurant. You check in at the Felix River Kwae Resort, where you still have time to enjoy the beautiful garden with the large pool.

 

2. Day: River Kwae – Golf
After breakfast departure to the Nichigo Country Club (Designer: Mitsuaki Kobayashi) will be the dream setting for the next round of golf. For many people it might be the most beautiful of the over 200 courses in Thailand. Without any doubt it belongs to the top courses in Asia. The 27 holes (Lake-, River and Mountain-Course) are perfectly fitted into the spectacular landscape of Kanchanaburi. On the way to the 6. hole is a replica of the famous Bridge over the River Kwae. For many golfers the charm of a course is fare more important than the technical side. Nichigo combines both. Sophistication of the game is combined with exotic nature along the river and the mountainous landscape as well as a tropical garden. After golf late lunch on a floating restaurant.

 

3. Day: River Kwae – Sightseeing
After breakfast you take a 30 min. drive to the Wang Po Elephant Camp, where you take a 45 minutes elephant ride through the jungle and the shallow river banks, followed by a "Bamboo Rafting" trip. After the 30 minute rafting tour you will watch a performance of the working elephants. After lunch at Tham Krasae you will ride a short distance in the famous "Death Train" along the spectacular Wang Po Viaduct. After you visit the historic Cambodian temple Phrasat Muang Sing, which was build by the Khmer during the early Angkor Period. In the late afternoon return to the hotel.

 

4. Day: River Kwae – Golf
Today you will play the Mission Hills Country Club. This excellent PGA standard course is a challenge for golfers of all handicaps. The course is build on a relatively flat terrain with tropical palm trees, got just a few roughs but a high number of water hazards. Jack Nicklaus designed his typical sand bunkers. Five of the fairways got "alternative fairways", with different routes to the greens. Only good players will play their handicap on this course. After the round Thai buffet on the clubhouse terrace.

 

5. Day: River Kwae – Ratchaburi (Golf) – Bangkok
After Breakfast check out and departure for the Royal Ratchaburi Golf Course, a dream like golf course half way to Bangkok. Situated right in the center of the triangle Bangkok - Kanchanaburi - Hua Hin, ideal to play during a tour to River Kwae or from  Kanchanaburi to Hua Hin. Around 25 km behind Rachaburi turn right into 3087. After 5 km turn right again - after 7 km you will reach the course on the left hand side. If Long hitter or "Short" player - without strategy you will not survive this course. If you have successfully mastered the tricky fairways  (water hazards, trees, bunker) you will be challenged again by the slopy greens. A truly amazing layout with a landscape which makes it hard to concentrate on the game! After the first few holes it seems unlikely that there will be an increased level of difficulty, but the challenge remains until the last hole of this super course, which undoubtedly counts as one of the 10 most beautiful golf courses in Thailand.
Lunch at a local restaurant. In the afternoon you arrive at your hotel in Bangkok or at the Airport, depending on your travel arrangements.
