Soi Dao Golf Course Description
Hole 1 – A challenging Par 4 to start the round. Tee off in front of the hotel, making sure to steer clear of the bunker on the right. On the approach shot, avoid the creek to land on the green, surrounded by bunkers on the left, in front and behind.
Hole 2 – A short Par 4 with a dogleg right. With the green not visible from the tee, positioning is key for the approach shot, which is uphill and has bunkers before the green. Be wary of the green, which falls right to left.
Hole 3 – A medium length Par 3, downhill and with a pond and stonewall guarding the front on the green. Beware of the bunkers on the right.
Hole 4 – A long, uphill Par 5. There’s a slight dogleg left with bunkers on the left, leading to a second shot that’s blind of the green. The approach is also blind, so be careful of the pond on the front right of the green.
Hole 5 – This enjoyable Par 3 is Soi Dao Highland Golf Resort’s signature hole. The long drive drops 15m from tee to green, with beautiful views of Soi Dao Mountain in the background. Be sure to tee-off accurately, as the green is heavily bunkered on the left and right.
Hole 6 – A tough Par 4 that requires accuracy. The beautiful approach shot is set at the bend of a creek running in front of, the right side and around the back of the green.
Hole 7 – The 7th hole Par 4 has a split fairway, with the smaller fairway on the left being the more direct route however it is protected by two bunkers to avoid. The longer route has a large fairway and a dogleg right to make the hole. The approach shot is played over a creek and be sure to avoid the bunker on the left.
Hole 8 – A straight Par 5 with rain trees on the left and right. It is possible to reach the green in two shots, however the challenge is hitting the elevated green.
Hole 9 – The front nine finishes with a Par 4. A generous fairway allows for many approach shot angles, which are directed at a green with a high left and low right, surrounded by bunkers on the left and short right.
Hole 10 – This uphill Par 4 is free from bunkers on the tee shot, however the approach shot features bunkers on the front short right of the green. Don’t forget to soak in the beautiful views of the lake and Soi Dao Mountain beyond!
Hole 11 – A downhill Par 4 with no bunkers around the green. The second shot requires an approach over the creek onto the long stepped green, with Soi Dao Mountain in the background.
Hole 12 – A long Par 3 where accuracy is key. Avoid the creek on the right and a bunker on the short right.
Hole 13 – A relatively easy Par 4 that can be made more difficult against a prevailing wind. The tee shot also features trees on both the left and right, with the green having a bunker to avoid on the left.
Hole 14 – The slightly uphill Par 4 requires avoiding three deep cross bunkers on the tee shot. The green is bunker free, however be aware of the drop off on the front left.
Hole 15 – Tee off from the elevated tee on this Par 5. When teeing off into a prevailing wind, it is possible to reach the green in two shots. A creek runs along the right all the way from the tee to the green, with a large bunker left and small bunker central on the tee shot. The diagonal green is against a long bunker with a pond and creek on the short right.
Hole 16 – A fun island Par 3. Be sure to avoid the bunkers behind the green.
