Located in Lamphun, just 40 minutes from Chiang Mai, the four-star Alpine Golf Resort is a magnificent complex which offers golfers a 27 hole championship course, luxury accommodation and brilliant facilities.
The course was designed by renowned architect Ron Garl and since establishment in 2008 has picked up various awards included the Best Golf Resort in Thailand in 2013 & 2014 as well as being voted in Asia’s Top 10 Best Golf Resorts in the same year. The course has featured on the Asian Tour, twice hosting the Chiang Mai Golf Classic in 2013 and 2014.
The course is split into three sets of nine hole courses all measuring between 3,700 and 3,850. The first two create the main 18-hole course which played host to the Chiang Mai Golf Classic while Course C was opened in 2016 and is seen to complement A and B. Regardless of how you choose to play at Alpine Golf Resort, you will be treated to 27 holes of fantastic golf and jaw-dropping scenery with the landscape surrounded by mountains and distant forests visible from certain holes. There are several memorable holes as you go round, starting with the par-5 4th which is an absolute monster at 652 yards as well as the 7th, a hole which requires you to know your distances as the green is definitely reachable but water stretches the full length of the hole and then cuts across in front of the green. After taking on a challenging island fairway on the 9th, you will hit the turn and then be immediately tested on a 524 yard par 4 which doglegs to the left. The final set of nine will allow have you navigating through pine trees and rice paddy fields as you look to finish strong.
The clubhouse is home to many brilliant facilities including two restaurants; the Resort Restaurant which is located not the ground floor and offers al fresco dining and the Clubhouse Restaurant which is located poolside providing a more open space for a quick snack. Alpine Golf Resort’s Heritage Spa is another impressive feature with two spa pavilions around the swimming pools including jacuzzis, steam baths and various treatment areas. Of course, the clubhouse is also home to a fully equipped pro shop with an associated pro there for any queries or advice.
