23 discovergolf.com.au Hole 11: Red Mountain Hole 9: 448m par-4 Siam CC (Plantation), Pattaya. This very long hole could easily be a par-5. It plays downhill from the tee, but requires a long and precise shot to reach or be close to the green. All but the longest hitters are forced to rely on one putt to make par. Hole 10: 391m par-4 Banyan Golf Club, Hua Hin. Ranked the second hardest hole on at Banyan, this downhill/uphill par-4 is a real test. The tee shot is intimidating, requiring accuracy to avoid thick bush right and left. The steeply elevated green is well protected by bunkers and requires a blind shot to the flag. Hole 11: 351m par-4 Red Mountain, Phuket. The green is almost 150 feet below the pro tee at this classic hole. A large green sits in front of one of many exposed red hills featured on the course, adding great contrast to the lush green fairway and green. Water to the left must be avoided at all costs. Hole 12: 401m par-4 Black Mountain, Hua Hin. A testing uphill hole that requires a well-laced tee shot to have a chance of reaching the green in two. The hole climbs more steeply to the green than appears from the tee. The large green is one of the highest on the course, which features sweeping views.
