Pros: The course is a well manicured jungle/orchard.
Course owner Nigel and his wife spend hours cutting back the constant growth to give us a very nice flat lawn to play on.

Due to the coconut trees and assorted other Thai fruit trees on the property, there is a regular patch of shade to be found somewhere, which is a relief as it's nearly always 30c and sunny here.

Course layout is a good mix of shots. Focus here is certainly on accuracy, as the course is very short by modern pro standards.
Nigel is also a caterer, and runs his business out of his home on the golf course. You can find homemade food like pizzas, meatball subs and bbq, cold water, soda and beers as well.

Property is centrally located. From the only traffic light in Maenam, you are only a 15 min walk or a 1 min bike taxi ride away.

Constant flow of international travelers stop by Nigel's, for his bbq and/or for golf, so there is almost always someone out on the golf course during the islands high seasons.
Cons: It's a short course. Average distance from the blue tees is only about 200ft over 9 holes.

It's only 9 holes.

Other Thoughts: The only real problem with this golf course is that there currently isn't any wide open space to stretch your arm out a bit.

As it stands, bring out your putters, midrange and perhaps a fairway driver and have fun. You're playing on a small tropical island in Thailand.

There are alternate tee/hole combinations that allow you to play a second round of 9 after playing the designated 9 from the blue tees, adding length and difficulty to each. You must ask Nigel about these because you will be crossing fairways.
