The Siam Country Club Rolling Hills Course is located 2.5 kilometers past the Waterside Course on the way to Chee Chan Mountain. The Brian Curley designed track makes use of traditional elements more commonly found on mature parkland courses which have stood the test of time.
The font nine moves away from the clubhouse on relatively flattish land. It has more of an open feel to it with hardly any foliage or large trees on the property. Hole 5 is unique in it has two greens which can be switched in and out to change the length and difficulty. Several others on this nine offer different approaches to the green depending on how aggressive you want to be in attacking the pins. The risk and reward here create unique holes.
The back nine plays up and down through gently rolling hills, thus the golf courses moniker. Two large lakes come into play here, one of which sits between holes 10 and 18. The landscape varies from marshlands to small stands of trees. Pine straw is used to good effect, another design element from the past. The most dramatic hole is the par-5 15th.
Here the green is protected by a wall of death and coming up short or left will leave golfers in a series of bunkers each which is deeper and steeper than the next. A bailout right is a much-preferred way to play the hole. The final three holes climb up to the highest point on the course giving golfers excellent views of the surrounding countryside and scenery back towards Pattaya. Making a good score here requires attention to details and focus until dropping back down to the clubhouse level on the 18th.
The modern Thai-inspired clubhouse is functional and classy. Catering for all golfers needs and in a first-class setting, the quality of lockers, restaurant, and pro shop are more characteristic of a private club than a daily use facility. Enjoying the 19th hole is a sure way to enjoy some extra time at the Siam Country Club, Rolling Hills Course. A meal with cold beverages caps off a perfect day at one of the best golf courses in Pattaya.
