Legacy Golf Club; Bangkok, Thailand

0

The Legacy Golf Club is the only Jack Nicklaus course in Bangkok. It was formerly known as Natural Park Golf Club and part of the large Natural Park group of courses. Before Legacy Golf Club was taken over by the Natural group it was independently run as the Winsan Golf Club. The golf club is located next to Safari World and is a very easy 40 minute drive from the city center of Bangkok.

The course is popular with local Thai golfers, members, and golf visitors alike. Course conditions are average especially considering the amount of rounds played. Caddies and staff seem a bit tired compared to other Bangkok golf courses. Also, during the rainy season the fairways get soggy very quickly as the course is set in one of the lower lying areas of Bangkok.

Legacy Golf Club was built between two lakes and is equally challenging for amateur and professional golfers. All the common Jack Nicklaus design features such as waste bunkers, wide fairways, and tight approaches are found in abundance at Legacy.

The Jack Nicklaus course measures over 7,100 yards from the ‘Jack’ tees, but with 5 tee boxes to choose from the golf course provides a fair test for players of all abilities. Huge lakes come into play on almost half the holes. Greens are undulated, but generally run slow. Most of the greens are well-guarded and surrounded by deep bunkers. The par-4, sixteenth plays especially difficult as a large island green is all but surrounded by water and sand.

The large clubhouse has several restaurants and function rooms. Service is fair and the Japanese cuisine in particular is well priced and quite tasty. The locker rooms seem dated and the whole clubhouse could do well with a renovation.

Overall, Legacy provides an average golf experience and is good for players of all levels.
