22 discovergolf.com.au Hole 6: Thai Country Club Hole 5: 536m par-5 Siam CC (Plantation), Pattaya. A classic uphill par-5 with heavy bunkering across a split fairway. Playing left is the best option, although another set of bunkers can penalise the second shot. Tee shots hit to the right require a steep second shot. The highly elevated green slopes towards the fairway. Hole 6: 207m par-3 Thai Country Club, Bangkok. Named as one of the great par-3 holes in Asia and playing more than 200 metres from the tips, this attractive hole plays pretty tough. Water on the right of the green makes it imperative that the tee shot stays centre or slightly left. Hole 7: 373m par-4 Riverdale Golf Club, Bangkok. This short risk and reward hole plays sharply left from a landing area off the tee that is well protected by bunkers. It is possible for very long hitters to cut the corner and seek to drive the green, but the chances of success are limited. Hole 8: 376m par-4 Muang Kaew, Bangkok. This is one of the tougher holes at Muang Kaew. Playing more than 370 metres, the dogleg right hole requires two excellent shots to reach the green in regulation. A lake guards the right hand side, while the green is well protected by bunkers left and right.
