Navatanee golf course – Built in 1973 specifically to host the 23rd World Cup of Golf in 1975 this majestic layout was the result of the vision of its Founder, Sukum Navapan, being skillfully brought to life by world-renowned Architect, Robert Trent Jones Jr. s’ philosophy, which was to create a course that was tough for the professional golfers yet provided an enjoyable challenge for golfers of more modest talent. He transformed paddy fields into a 6,902-yard championship course of truly international standards, and his first masterpiece in Asia. Very expensive course.
