Springfield Royal Country Club is one of our favourite golf courses in Hua Hin.A little further out of town than some of the other courses but can be easily reached within 30 minutes.As you would expect from a course designed by the legendary Jack Nicklaus there are plenty of traps in the shape of bunkers and water hazards strategically placed to catch that fade or slice off the tee. Springfield Royal Country Club is a very mature course and some of the holes are wide open and almost links-style and others wind their way between the mature trees and local plant life. The owners have been careful to implement a design approach that would not only preserve the natural wildlife but also to enhance it.
Springfield added another 9 holes in 2005 designed by the renowned team of golf course architects Lee Schmidt and Brain Curley. These nine are quite different to the original layout designed by Nicklaus 18 and are probably more challenging than the original course.
There are five sets of tees to choose from so the course is set up for players of all standards and if you enjoy the challenge of playing from the back tees then be prepared for some long carries off the tee and for your approach to the lush greens.
