PostSubject: The back nine of Augusta.....in Bangkok   Tue Apr 15, 2014 9:02 am

Found this interesting article on golfwrx about a course in BKK.  I've attached the link below, but it's a course called The Dream Arena at Golf Gems City that has copied some famous golf holes and the entire back nine of Augusta.  Sounds like a must try.

I played there about 18 months ago... it's an awesome course and while it will never be 100% accurate it's pretty close and the next best thing to playing at the original.  I can't think how many balls I lost on the '17th at Sawgrass'.

It's northeast from Don Mueang airport.  It comes up as The Royal Gems City Co. on google maps.

There are 2 Royal Gems in Bangkok, so you'll have to be specific when you book. This one is Royal Gem City (although it is not so near the city). The course is very well set up, with lush grass and near perfect greens.

Definitely worth a visit.

look at google map. It's not that far from lum luk ka golf, during the last trip, I think the driver went passed it on the way to lum luk ka.

Wah... the course is in Pathumthani? That's far man, but I'll definitely give it a try when I'm there.
