The 18 holes at Alpine golf simply put make up the most challenging golf course in Bangkok, and by a wide margin! In addition to the superb layout this member’s only golf club is extremely well maintained and features lightening fast greens and undulating fairways. Alpine Golf and Sports Club’s picturesque hills were created from flat rice paddy fields and the changing elevations may remind you more of places like Chiang Mai, Hua Hin or even Myrtle Beach. The rolling fairways and undulating greens at Alpine differentiate the course from any other in Bangkok. Eighty percent of the greens slope from back to front, so keeping the ball below the hole is the key to shooting low scores.
