2022.07 The Vintage

pinch zoom 


rotate screen



International Golf Society Thailand


Comp game at The Vintage Golf Club

a medium price range course, flat, above average water hazards,

walk or kart



Reviewed by BC; on 30 Apr 2022

Very mature and flat tree-lined course, with a good mix of short & longer holes. Nothing fancy, just a regular design. The fairways were undergoing some maintenance, but they were playable, greens were very nice. Caddies were friendly with good course knowledge and spoke some English. The English-style clubhouse is big, very nice, and comfortable, with a good restaurant & locker room.


Venue to several Thai PGA and Thai LPGA events, the 18 holes golf course designed by a renowned US golf architect Arthur Hills. With pristine greens and rolling fairway, the course retain many of the natural surroundings.

At the course




Another July “rainy season” day … 

it’s raining in Bangkok but at the course it's sunny however it can change any time 

Seasons of Weather Thailand = 3  Winter / Summer / Raining 


Best practice

ideal to arrive early and take in the beautiful clubhouse and Restaurant

avoid traffic congestion and rush

Apart from golfing on the day, I attempt multitasking challenges (often means not a good golf score)  

No problem / “Mai Mee Pbun Haa”

Photos / videos: 

very dependant on weather conditions and the vibe of the player group

If the weather is threatening rain / high humidity then its poor depth of field (low quality)

If the player group is not known or strictly golf then we avoid photo contact 


Contrasting day of weather conditions .. but that's the tropical climate this time of the year 

We started on the 10th with blue sky 


10th Fairway



10th green

A few holes later we were facing some serious dark clouds but …. NO RAIN 

The course is very consistent throughout in terms of general condition and average challenges of some narrow tee box, fairway bunkers and water hazards protecting greens

360 pics: Google mapping - Step Inside

Images are uploaded to google maps to … same same Street View but when the images go beyond the road it's called  “step Inside” into places, to allow anyone on the net to engage Virtual tour / Step Inside
