The Royal Samui Golf & Country Club
The Royal Samui Golf and Country Club (RSGCC) was created in 2006 by a small group of golf enthusiasts with the aim to offer an affordable but enjoyable golfing experience in a relaxed and scenic environment. Fortunately for those of us who are golf enthusiasts, this club has experienced financial difficulty, and although the clubhouse, the extensive pavilions and the tennis courts are not completed, the course itself is both challenging and stunning.
Built on the mountain-top between Lamai and Chaweng, this nine-hole course offers spectacular views of Lamai, Chaweng and the surrounding islands floating languidly in the background. Each hole also offers panoramic views of adjacent and neighbouring holes with many breathtaking drops in elevation.
RSGCC is a course that all golfers from novice to experienced players will truly enjoy. Despite the fact that only 9 holes are completed on the 18-hole planning, play on through a second time and try to birdie your first round.
