Golf Course Comments :
   
Working with a spectacular, undulating natural topography, English born golf course architect Desmond Muirhead has created one of Pattaya’s most interesting golf courses, as St Andrews was built to replicate a Scottish links course. Located in Rayong, about 40 minutes from Pattaya and 1.5 hours from Bangkok, St. Andrews is accessible for golfers staying in either city.
     While aimed at players with handicaps of 18 or lower, this most challenging course in Pattaya should be a must visit for all golfing tourists in the area. The course is an extremely tough test of golf from any tee. The two par 6’s are a bit much for the golf course purist. The additional long fairway shot that must be played demands an entirely different dimension in concentration and course management.
     From the tips, the “twin-sixes” (Nos. 4 and 13) measured 878 and 861 yards, respectively. Both holes will be "strategic" rather than penal, in particular, at the 4th hole par 6, with the rock out-crops acting as the backdrop and three ponds are being exploited to the maximum to ensure that a tour of the course will be not only pleasing to the eye, but also mentally soothing and will certainly leave golfer playing their shots over the water with memorable experience.
     The course demands a combination of both power and accuracy, with the strategic positioning of hazards forcing the player to remain focused on each and every shot, as one mental error can be very costly. This course will test every club and trick in your bag, and leave you with lots of stories to tell your friends about a challenging round of golf that will create lasting memories. Bring lots of golf balls, a camera and expect to otherwise be beaten up by this course
     St. Andrews 2000 is under the same management, sharing the same facilities as the older more established sister course, Rayong Green Valley Country Club. The club house and on site golf resort are well run, over looking both courses they make for a good 19th hole to reflect on your round. Green fees are on the high side for Pattaya and with the compulsory golf cart; this course may not fit into everyone’s budget. However, if just for the bragging rights to be the fist on the block to have played a par 6 (actually 2) it should be worth it. Additionally, for those looking for a best golf of Pattaya package, St. Andrews is a must include golf course.

St. Andrews 2000 names in honour of its venerable Scottish’s St. Andrews. St. Andrews 2000 is located in picturesque hilly countryside in the South Eastern Thai province of Rayong, just over half and hour’s drive from the famous seaside resort town of Pattaya. Designed by the flamboyant English-born and Cambridge-educated architect Desmond Muirhead, St. Andrews 2000 opens for play in you guessed it the year 2000. The sprawling par 74 course adjoins its sister layout, the older, well established par 72 layout of the Rayong Green Valley Country Club.

It’s not a typ-o-par 74 for an astounding back market length of 7777 yard, thanks to the two endlessly long par6. The two monster holes in question are the 4th and 13th, which weigh in at 855 and 857 yards respectively. Moirhead has created a visually stunning, sweeping layout that must rank among the best new courses in the land of a thousand smiles.

St. Andrews 2000, an uncompromisingly tough golf course that will test even the best of golfers to their limits.

Working with a spectacular, undulating natural topography, St.Andrews 2000 was built to replicate the wind-swept Scottish links courses, offering an uncompromising challenge aimed at players with handicaps of 18 or lower. Opened at the dawn of the Pacific Century, this course will soon become known as one of Asia's true championship courses. Desmond Muirhead created a full 18 holes, 74 par of memorable golf, featuring elevated tees and greens, tight landing zones, split elevation fairways, huge putting surfaces and two par 6's

The Course demands a combination of both power and accuracy, with the strategic positioning of hazards forcing the player to remain focused on each and every shot, as one mental error can be very costly. This is a touch, demanding course that will test every club and trick in your bag, and leave you with lots of stories to tell your friends about a challenging round of golf that will create lasting memories.
