Muang Kaew Golf Club in Bangkok

Sprawling Bangkok, the largest city in Thailand, is riddled with golf courses around its perimeter. The closest to the city center is Muang Kaew Golf Club , opened in 1992 and recently redesigned and upgraded by Schmidt-Curley Design.

The golf course, more than 7,000 yards from the championship tees, plays through low-lying, wooded areas with lots of water hazards. Its convenience requires the golf course to play tight in spots. On the back nine, you pass under a freeway to play the 16th hole before finishing on the other side.

Like most Thai golf clubs, caddies are mandatory, but that's a good thing here. They're some of the best in Thailand and offer massages and fanning while you wait to hit your shot. Muang Kaew Golf Club is busiest on the weekends, so you're better served to play here Monday through Friday. Just a 20-minute drive from Suvarnabhumi Airport, it's a good first or last stop on a Thailand golf trip.

Brandon Tucker is the Managing Editor for Golf Advisor. To date, his golf travels have taken him to over two dozen countries and over 500 golf courses worldwide. While he's played some of the most prestigious courses in the world, Tucker's favorite way to play the game is on a great muni in under three hours.

Thailand's female caddies are a big reason why the country is such a popular golf destination - one with a higher repeat-visitor rate than anywhere else in the region. Your caddie experience in Thailand will be far different - and far less expensive - than anywhere in the Western world of golf. The round will come with a bushel full of foreign nuances you won't come close to enjoying back home, so enjoy the ride.
