Chiang Mai Highlands
Set in the foot-hills east of Chiang Mai, Chiangmai Highlands was designed by Schmidt-Curley Design giving golfers the distraction of magnificent views on every hole.
Open to the public in December 2005, the course has already been heralded as one of the Best New Courses in Asia and voted among the top courses to play in Thailand. In its first year of operation Chiangmai Highlands was immediately voted among the Top New Courses in Asia by Asian Golf Monthly and just a few years later voted among the Top 3 Courses in Thailand by readers of the same publication. The accolades continued as South East Asian Globe Magazine named Chiangmai Highlands the Number One Course in Thailand.
The greens at Chiangmai Highlands typically run between 9.5 and 10.5 on the Stimp-meter. The greens are firm and fast but hold a well struck iron shot. Many greens slope away from the fairway putting more emphasis on strategy and local knowledge.
The approach areas around green complexes often feature closely mown areas giving the golf many options of playing either a chip-and-run, pitch shot or even putting the ball up onto the green surface. Imagination is a terrific asset when trying to get up and down at Chiangmai Highlands.
As the golf course matured, the owners added 19 Private Resort Villas to compliment the grand clubhouse and later The Spa at Chiangmai Highlands which features ten treatment rooms, a fitness center and swimming pool all over-looking the picturesque 18th fairway and valley beyond.
The terrific facilities, friendly Lanna Thai service, world class championship golf course and lush playing conditions is quickly becoming a golfing legend in the North of Thailand. Combined with the homes development within the property Chiangmai Highlands Golf and Spa Resort is a place of happiness for the entire family.
