The 27-hole Crystal Bay Golf Resort (former Legacy Crystal Bay Golf Resort) course was designed by Japanese designed Thai Takenaka and opened for play in 1988 under the original name of Natural Park Resort. Since 2010 it is owned by and operated under the Legacy golf group of properties. Described as a Hawaiian style course with palm tree lined holes, Crystal Bay has good tee boxes, lush fairways and fair greens.The Pattaya golf course is a straight forward 27-hole layout comprises three nine-hole golf courses which vary in elevation and hazards. The course is a mixture of styled fairways with an occasional links-type hole. Water is omnipresent, mostly bordering fairways though some waterways do require a carry over water onto the green. Bunkers play an integral role in determining play, making precision shots imperative.
