Gallery: Banyan Golf Club in Hua Hin, Thailand

Banyan Golf Club is one of Asia's newest championship golf courses, opened in 2008 in Hua Hin, Thailand, a coastal city two hours drive from Bangkok and the home of the country's king. The course was built on a pineapple plantation and rolls up and down gently rolling terrain. The course has six tee boxes per hole and can play over 7,300 yards and has some demanding holes, like the 600-plus yard par-5 12th hole and 450-yard par-4 ninth.

At the 2010 Asian Pacific Golf Summit, Banyan Golf Club was awarded the runner-up for Best Clubhouse and second runner-up for best golf course in Thailand.

Like many of the top golf courses in Thailand, Banyan G.C. has exceptional facilities, including a locker room with massage services and a full restaurant and bar. Caddies are available and the course is walker friendly, though a bit hilly.
