Just a short distance from the Burmese border, the Evergreen Hills Golf Club – one of the top golfing destinations in Thailand – is located in a heavily wooded highland valley with relatively pleasant and cooler temperatures compared to other areas of the country.
The course is not too long and welcomes players of all skill levels. With bunkers coming into play on most holes, accuracy is definitively more rewarding than length. Water is sparingly used but will challenge you on the par-4 6th hole, more seriously on the signature 16th par-3 with its protected island green, and finally on the long dogleg 17th par-4 requiring a well-positioned tee shot onto a relatively small landing area.
The soft elevation changes contribute to several nicely elevated tee-boxes as well as a few raised greens. The many different types of trees (one for each hole) along the 18 holes course provide an incredible visual experience as well as a real golf test of your abilities.
