Golf Canyon opened in early 2009 with initially 9 holes. Currently there are 18 holes, but clear signs that the extra 9 to make 27 are well in progress. We understand the course is leased or owned by a Korean company, so during the high season (November – February) the 300 room hotel is popular with visitors. The front nine is significantly easier than the back nine, particularly if you are on putting form. While the holes are shorter on the front nine, the putts can be trickier with plenty of hard to read breaks. The back nine is much, much longer and much, much narrower. The two combined offer a fun layout with plenty of challenge.

Features

The Gold Canyon course features some interesting and challenging holes. The par 3 2nd hole is where you see the gold, with a gold painted rock formation blocking part of the green on this long par 3. putting around the rocks can be tricky if you end up in the wrong location. The 17th is another par 3 where the green is well protected by a lake in front and to the left and the forests beyond. The whole course is set into a valley, surrounded on all sides by forest covered hills, offering great views in all directions.

Location
To get to Gold Canyon, take the Superhighway south from Chiang Mai in the direction of Lamphun. Go past Lamphun, over the flyover at the Big C junction. At the next set of traffic lights, turn right, cross over the railway, and then turn left at the next junction. The road is dead straight for around 13km, until it turns to the right – just after the corner look out for the sign to turn left to the golf course.
