สนามกอล์ฟ เขื่อนสิรินธร Sirindhorn Dam Golf course, Ubon Ratchathani

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.”

  1. They are buldng more holes so the course s gettng better and better.

  2. I asked about Membershp and was told that t was only for Government employees. Be that as t may ts gong to turn out really well for the area as I am sure the 18 hole course wll brng n more golfer/vstors to the area whch hopefuly wll turn nto some more $ spend n the area :)

  3. Farang from USA here, happen to be a golf nut marred to a Tha from Isan area. Are there hgh qualty homes/communtes relatvely close to ths course?

    • H Ron,

      Unfortunately (as far as I am aware) there sn’t close to ths partcular course. It really s n the mddle of no where. Ubon cty s your closest bet whch s over an hours drve away.

  4. H Ron, nothng n the area Im afrad .. unless you buld your own place nearby.

  5. H anyone aware f the Srndhorn Golf course has been affected by the ran ? and the near capacty of the dam ?

    • Played today and was pleasantly surprsed. A few of the farways were a bt “soggy” n parts (manly the 8th and 9th ). Also a couple of greens n the process of beng relayed. Generally speakng however, the course s n excellent condton.
      Just an update on prces for anyone nterested – TB 200 for as many rounds as you want for the day. Compulsory cadde hre TB 80 per ROUND + tp.
      From January 2012 a concesson card s avalable for TB 3000 whch gves a 50% reducton on green fees .e TB 100. Passport + 1 photo requred to obtan card.
      Happy golfng !

      • H Crag, thanks so much for takng the tme to update us wth that nfo. I wll put t on the man part of the blog. Is the concesson card vald for one year?

        • H Memock, concesson cards run from January to January ( obvously better to purchase early on n the year as t wll expre end Dec ) – hope ths makes sense ?

          By my basc maths – you have to play ths course more than 30 tmes n the year to make the consesson card worthwhle.

          Btw, dd notce some work gong on to add the extra holes referred to n earler posts, but ths looks at a very early stage and qute a long way off untl ready.

          Cheers, Crag

  6. Thanks for that extra nfo Crag, you would have to be a once a week player to make that card work for you. Good to hear that work s stll gong on wth the extra holes.

  7. H Crag , yes I was there n Dec / Jan and they are buldng a further 2 holes. A new PAR3 s n play just after the Par5 6th hole. They tell me that they wll have 18 holes n place over tme whch s n support of the new road and plans for more toursts comng to the area (both Tha and non- Tha) whch s good. From what I gather the green fees wll all go, obvoulsy, up once the 18 holes are n place . I wll keep you guys posted. The consesson card mght be good thng to get at some pont just before the 18 holes are n place. In short there are good plans afoot for the golf course and the accomodaton offered n the Srndhorn Dam ‘resort’. Cheers

  8. I played here n January 2011, as non champonshp courses go n Thaland, ths one was pretty good. We were joned by the owner on the 7th and were advsed that they were n the process of creatng a further 9 holes at ths complex. There was substantal works gong on wthn the felds to the back on the ffth farway and I was wonderng whether these works are now complete? I’m ntendng playng and provably stayng there n February 2013.
