For those who like their golf courses in a spectacular location, Chiang Mai Highlands Golf and Spa Resort does not disappoint.  Regardless of the hole you are playing, the views in all directions are fabulous and it is easy to see why this golf course has won so many awards over the years.  It was voted third for 'Best New Golf Course in Asia' by Asian Golf Monthly and won the “Best Golf Resort in Asia” award in 2015.

Created by Schmidt-Curley Design, Chiang Mai Highlands Golf and Spa Resort features bold green paspalum fairways and Tiff eagle greens.  The greens in particular are of a very high quality, running fast and true throughout the 27 holes.  Many of the greens slope from front to back and it is worth keeping that in mind when playing approach shots.

The bunkers are very easy on the eye and their design add to the beauty of the course.  However, they are also the main hazard and can be very punishing, leading to dropped shots.  The areas around the greens allow for varied shot selection including pitch shots, chip and runs and putting if you would prefer to leave the irons in the bag.

The course at Chiang Mai Highlands Golf and Spa Resort is split into three sets of nine holes called the Valley Course, Highlands Course and Mountain Course.  There is water on several of the holes and it comes into play on a few of them, with the three of the first four holes of the Highlands Course a good example.

There are five tee boxes on each hole which makes the course suitable for players of all abilities.  Most players fall in love with Chiang Mai Highlands Golf and Spa Resort from the first tee thanks to the downhill tee shot and the views of the course and mountains into the distance.

Off course facilities include locker rooms, pro-shop, spa and a restaurant which serves a wide ranging menu including burgers, salads, pasta dishes and Thai food.  The accommodation is located close to the clubhouse and includes several different types of villa and access to the resort swimming pool.

So, you could easily make a night of it and stay at Chiang Mai Highlands Golf and Spa Resort or book a tee time and make the trip from your own accommodation.

Chiangmai Highlands Golf Resort

Best course in the area

Reviewed by ; on
On arrival we were met with an hour delay in starting for an 11 am tee time. Once underway the pace of play was about 4.5 hrs. The course wad in very good condition and the greens running consistently around 10.5, other courses in the area (Alpine and Gassan) were unable to do. Really enjoyed the layout and challenge of the course, plenty of elevation change well placed sand and water hazards. The staff were friendly and service good.

C loop in good shape. A loop not in great condition - some greens poor.

Reviewed by ; on
This is a great location set on beautiful mountains with mature trees. Not as impressive as prior visits. Caddies not good - don’t know yardages or golf etiquette . Pity not to play signature back 9 ( B loop).

Very good course with tremendous people

Reviewed by ; on
The Chiang Mai Highlands golf course is a treat that golfers should not miss. Course is in great condition tee through green. However, we played late on a Sunday morning and it was very slow. With the policy of not playing through one could experience what we did... over 5 hour round. On the first par 3 we had 4 groups. As for the clubhouse and services... top notch for sure. Proshop is well stocked and most prices very reasonable. Food is excellent in the restaurant Caddie services... I can only give you my opinion on ours....very attentive and well trained. Great personalities.
