Chee Chan Golf Resort
Chee Chan Golf Resort, designed by Golfplan – Dale & Ramsey Golf Course Architects, offers golfers the chance to play on one of the most beautiful modern courses in Asia. Located in the shadows of the famed Khao Chee Chan Buddha and providing views of the nearby resort city of Pattaya, Jomtien, and the Gulf of Thailand, Chee Chan is as visually stunning as it is a golfing challenge.
The land and the surrounding environment are gently rolling hills and in contrast to other Pattaya golf courses, provide more of “Scottish Highlands” playing experience. The surrounding environment gives golfers a sense of space and openness. Over time the Pattaya golf course will gain an iconic perspective and sweeping views of Khao Chee Chan, temples, lakes and mountains.
The 18 hole par 72 course is a challenging 7,345 yards from the championship tees and a more leisurely 6,527 yards from the front tees. Fairways and tee boxes planted with Zoysia grass are a welcome change from other area courses. Greens constructed from Tifeagle Bermuda grass putt well. The course has been designed to suit better golfers as layout provides sweeping movement on the fairways and greens and features intricate bunker facing native landscapes and wetlands. These latter areas are a highlight of the course.
Long uphill par-4’s provide challenge often not seen at public golf facilities. Some holes seem misdesigned; they are so long.
The clubhouse is modern and functional without being overbearing. Full practice facilities include driving range, putting area, and chipping green. Golf carts drive on the path at all times are mandatory. Chee Chan has an international feel to it with 5-star service levels rivaling the best in Asia.
