R&A are thinking of admitting ladies to the club. One headline said "soon ladies could be on the fairways at St A. This is inaccurate. TheR& A does NOT own the course, it just plays on it. It is owned by the city and women have played on it for years.

Hi fellow golfers,
how good are the courses in Hua Hin ( Black Mountain, Banyan, Imperial and Majestic ) during rain? Are they draining very well? Has anybody here experience playing these courses during the wet season?
Cheers

I do not know about Majestic but all the other courses have very good drainage. After a tropical downpour one can play pretty much after it stops.

Otherwise its the usual problems of no run on the faiways etc

No problems with golf in the rainy season which is usually September and October. All the greens are built on sand bases and drain perfectly. Some fairways might get a bit soggy but just play lift and place. I believe Majestic did some drainage work last year. August and September is golf festival with lower green fees. August is a great time to visit with less people and just enough rain to keep the courses good. Most of the courses tend to do their green coring in May and September so usually the greens are good as well.

"Centara World Masters begins in Thailand" (Hua Hin)

"More than 500 golfers representing 23 countries have arrived in Thailand for the inaugural Centara World Masters Golf Championship, starting in Hua Hin today (Sunday).

The sell-out event is a welcome boon to Thailand’s tourism which has seen many events and conferences cancelled in recent months.
The tournament has attracted big numbers from Australia, Singapore, India and New Zealand. The event’s international appeal has brought golfers from France, Germany, the United States and United Kingdom. South East Asia is well represented with 85 players, including eight from host country Thailand.

The Centara World Masters is open to golfers aged 35 and over, with competition across 14 divisions based on age and handicap. Golfers will play the country’s top-ranking Black Mountain, Banyan, Majestic Creek and Imperial Lake View golf clubs and will compete for more than 1 million Thai baht in prizes. ..."

No 9 hole rates here am afraid, enjoy your golf :). Have you played Springfield already... if you can on your trip from BKK or on the way back you could play Royal Ratchaburi, its super cheap (under 1000 baht!) and super fantastic course.. you wont regret it am can assure you :).

Agree with JW. Royal Ratchaburi is a great course and last time I was there (about 9 months ago), it was 680 THB for green fee and caddie - midweek.

Thanks..JW...

Banyan play after 3pm 2,050 bhat(all including cart), 4pm 1,500 bhat(same)...

I saw above....that's why I'm asking the 9 hole price if possible...
maybe after 3~4pm...9 holes can be played....

I believe only Banyan offer this kind of 9 hole rate and a good idea it is too.
Was just looking at the Black Mountain website and could not find their green fee rates?? Found the rates for the 9 holer no problem. Was wondering what they were going to charge during the golf festival? I see Banyan are charging 1800 baht during the fesival. Is it 1000 baht at the other courses?
I do agree that Royal Ratchaburi is a gem and well worth a day trip.
