Boasting the title of Thailand’s best golf course according to a recent poll of 15,000 Golfasian travelers, Pineapple Valley Golf Club Hua Hin has attracted not just top golfers, but also celebrities from various sports. Renowned Ryder Cup captain Darren Clark, former tennis world number 1 Rafael Nadal, and Formula 1 driver Alex Albon have all graced the course. Even Manchester United legends and Thai celebrities have enjoyed a round on this prestigious 18-hole championship course.

We take a closer look at the course and the club’s facilities, which reflects the team’s commitment to excellence.

The course

Established in 2009 in a former pineapple plantation, the course is meticulously designed by Thailand’s leading golf course architect Pirapon Namatra of Golf East. Known to many as Khun Ope, he has a wealth of golf course design and experience since the opening of his first course, Bangsai Country Club, Ayuddhaya in 1996.

The course is known for its stunning setting nestled amidst the surrounding nature, providing a challenging round for golfers of all skill levels. While every hole is a signature, hole 15 provides a spectacular panorama over the valley and the Gulf of Thailand.

Before you tee off, dial in skills at the practice driving range and two dedicated short-game practice greens. To keep you hydrated during the round, refresh at one of the three on-course Chapman’s kiosks along the course.


The eye-catching clubhouse is a captivating blend of postmodern design and traditional Thai architecture as you enter our remarkable clubhouse. This unique fusion creates an atmosphere of elegance and cultural charm that sets the stage for a truly memorable experience. Luxurious changing rooms offer a comfortable and stylish space for you to prepare for your round or freshen up afterwards.

Mulligan’s Pub

The bar earns its reputation as Thailand’s most scenic pub thanks to its unique location: elevated between holes 1 and 9, overlooking the course and valley and beyond to the majestic Tanaosri mountains range. Bask in the warm ambience and take in the magnificent sunset views as you regale stories of birdies, near misses, and the shared joy of the game.
