Laid out by Perry Dye, the course at Southern Hills Golf and Country Club is set in the south of the country, near the border with Malaysia, where fairways are routed along a narrow river valley which is surrounded by dense jungle.
Southern Hills just south of Hat Yai is well worth the visit. This is a very good golf course. It is not the perfectly manicured American course but normally in good condition.
There is a small welcoming clubhouse. The greenfee is reasonable and ay have gone down now in Covid times.
The course is a Dye course with a great variety of holes, short par 4’s and winding par 5’s.. There are many similarities with TPC Sawgrass, 17th island green and 18th round water all the way up the left. This a course that you will want to play again and again.
