In March 2007, after spending 7 million US dollars, Siam Country Club Pattaya Old Course was reopened, and was immediately courted to showcase an international caliber championship tournament, the Honda LPGA Thailand 2007 in October. The tournament not only has proven to be a tremendous success but has also shown to the world the beauty of the golf course.
Now with the investment of another 18 million US dollars, the new 27-hole golf course is ready for a “Trial Opening” with the name Siam Country Club Pattaya Plantation. Both golf courses are designed by a well known Arizona based, Schmidt & Curley Design Inc. The “PLANTATION” name was given in the honor of the historic Sugar Cane, Tapioca, and Pineapple plantations, and each 9-hole is named accordingly.

The Club is home to three wonderful golf courses including the first privately owned course in the country which gives in a unique place in the history of golf in Thailand. The Siam Country Club is located just 20 minutes drive from Pattaya.
The Old Course was the first privately owned golf course in Thailand. Work began on the course in 1969 and was first played in 1971. The course was originally created by Japanese course designer Isao Izumi but was completely redeveloped in 2006 by Schmidt-Curley Design who rebuilt and created new bunkers as well as totally renovating the fairways and greens. The Clubhouse was also refurbished to the modern standard of comfort and reopened in March 2007. The result is an astoundingly good golf. It is a joy to play for golfers of all abilities.
