This is the fourth and final review of Golf courses in Ubon Ratchathani. The other three can be found here.
สนามกอล์ฟ เขื่อนสิรินธร Sirindhorn Dam Golf course is located the furthermost from Ubon but in my opinion it is the best course in the province of Ubon.
Due to it’s location it is also the quietest and it is quite common to be the only group on the entire course some days. As the name suggests it is located at the Sirindhorn Dam (เขื่อนสิรินธร) which as I found out two days ago on a visa run to Chong Mek it is 76km from Tung Sri Muang (main park in the centre of town) and it took me 1 hour and 3 minutes to drive. This will be quicker once the road works are finished on the Phiboon to Chong Mek part of the road.
The lake is named after Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn who is the second daughter of King Bhumibol Adulyadej. She also visits regularly and stays at her own private house in the complex. As a result the place is immaculate and so is the golf course! The greens are a delight and there is enough interesting hazards to keep most golfers amused. The 19th hole is well set up with food and drinks and there is also accommodation available.
Due to it being so quiet I would suggest calling ahead to organise caddies if you prefer a sun rise tee off like I do. The number is 045 366081-3
**Update November 2011**
Part of a comment from Craig says “Just an update on prices for anyone interested – TB 200 for as many rounds as you want for the day. Compulsory caddie hire TB 80 per ROUND + tip.
From January 2012 a concession card is available for TB 3000 which gives a 50% reduction on green fees i.e TB 100. Passport + 1 photo required to obtain card.”
