Laem Chabang is made up of 27 holes on 700 acres and makes use of 3 types of features which characterize each of the 9 holes. This handiwork is widely hailed by critics for the optimum usage of the land’s mixed terrain of mountains, lakes and river valleys which are lovely as well as functional. Different types of terrain integrate finely to the 9-hole course in a unique way and as such each course is named Mountain, Lake and Valley.
The rolling hills of the surrounding countryside have been optimally utilized. There is an abundance of hazards to stop you from reaching the green. These include bunkers, sand traps, water hazards and even natural hazards in the shape of exposed rock formations, lakes, ponds and creeks. Cleverly shaped holes skirt water hazards and tall coconut trees. Every tee is signed with a board describing a distinctive tree or shrub planted nearby to give the course a unique floral emphasis. The large, undulating greens are mostly raised and protected by wide bunkers.
