The Alpine Golf Resort Chiang Mai comprises some 450 rai of land that nestles in a valley between the mountain ranges in the heart of the San Kamphaeng natural forests. It is undoubtedly one of the best golf courses in Chiang Mai. Hosting the Asian Tour 2013 and 2014 Chiang Mai Classic, Alpine was put on the professional circuit and further recognized for its world-class layout.
The design of the first 18 by world-famous golf course designer Mr. Ron M Garl, was inspired by the magnificent hills on its horizon. No matter where you are on the course, you are sure to enjoy nature at her best: beautiful lush green from the nearby forests - which comprise a rich assembly of trees such as the golden teak wood, mahogany, and many more other species. The 18-hole, Chiang Mai course at 7,541 yards in length from the black tees will challenge the professional golfer, although anyone who enjoys golfing in the fresh country air, close to nature, will find it equally pleasant from either the white or blue tee boxes.
The new nine holes, opened in 2016, play towards the rear of the resort and is separated into three distinct zones. The pine tree zone is more of a parkland area, the wetland zone plays through marshes, and working rice paddy fields highlight the paddy zone. In fact, rice fields surround one of the par-3 holes forming Thailand only rice paddy green. Currently, the new nine holes are divided between the original 18 holes so that everyone is forced to play some of the new and old courses.
