Playing at the Blue Canyon puts you in the league of golfing legends.

International dignitaries, world leaders and heads of state the likes of Bill Clinton and George Bush Senior have golfed here and golf greats Greg Norman, Tiger Woods, Ernie Els, Ian Woosnam, Gary Player, Nick Faldo, Grace Park, Colin Montgomerie, Thomas Bjorn, Retief Goosen are all in our hall of fame.

It ranks as one of the most distinguished and prestigious championship courses in Asia.

The striking masterpiece is sculpted with minimal disruption to the original landscape of an abandoned tin mine flanked by rubber plantations. Unveiled in December 1991, the award-winning Canyon Course has since been the ultimate experience for many golfers.

CANYON COURSE – THE ULTIMATE CHAMPIONSHIP COURSE

Unveiled in 1991, the award-winning Canyon Course has since been the ultimate golfing experience for many golfers. The Canyon Course ranks as one of the most distinguished and prestigious championship golf courses in Asia.

The course is undergoing renovations and is expected to reopen in Spring 2024.

The striking masterpiece was originally designed by renowned architect Yoshikazu Kato and was sculpted with minimal disruption to the original landscape of an abandoned tin mine flanked by rubber plantations.

The Canyon course was the first golf course to ever host the Johnnie Walker Classic thrice in the tournament’s history, in 1994, 1998 & 2007, the Canyon Course is the top venue for major events. It has hosted the Honda Invitational, the BMW International World Final, The Thailand Open, Blue Canyon Tiger Skins & Thai Airways International Thailand Open.

THE LAKES COURSE – A PLEASURABLE MASTERPIECE

Another championship marvel created by Yoshikazu Kato in 1999, with 270-yard target-driving areas capable of challenging the best players in the world. Sculpted from an opencast mining landscape, with a foremost mission to maintain the integrity of the wildlife habitat and the existing land flow. As its name suggests, water hazards are featured on 17of the 18 holes at the Lakes. The course boasts one of the best finishing holes in the region, perhaps the most difficult natural par 4 finish in golf. Given the strategic range of tees, fair number of exigent holes, wide fairways and generous greens to suit master players and novices alike, the Lakes Course is certainly one of the most luxurious and enjoyable 18 holes anywhere.
