Kantary Hotel Kabinburi Golf Course is rather special, particularly if you are a golfer. The standard of the hotel is fantastic & the golf package can’t be beat. For 3000 Baht or $90 usd, which sadly is now $104 aud, you get 2 18 hole rounds of golf on the magnificent Kabinburi Sport Club which proudly boasts of being the longest course in Thailand. Add to that one nights accommodation & breakfast included, makes this the best value golf package in Thailand.

If that was not enough the three of us were all upgraded to a wonderful one bedroom suite which is the best hotel accommodation I have ever seen anywhere in the country.

Super value at Kantary Hotel Kabinburi.

The kantary hotel has excellent food and a nice selection of wine. Imported Australian beef was cooked to perfection & washed down with the house wine from South Africa. There is also a Japanese & Chinese menu as well, however the Chinese may only be on offer for their lunar new year.

Without a doubt AGODA is the best online Hotel booking site.

Lets talk about the golf course.

The longest course is quite magnificent, very tough for hackers like myself but an excellent workout for the more skilled golfers. 6652 yards long from the white tees up to a monster 8075 from the championship tees. The condition of the course is quite remarkable, by far the best fairways I have ever played on, and the greens are groomed beautifully. If you enjoy your golf the Kabinburi Sport Club is a must to play, make sure you book the hotel package for the best value.

Beautiful bougainvillea decorates many of the greens and there is plenty of water waiting to gobble up your brand new golf balls.

 I spent so much time in the sand traps on the back nine my friends were calling me Lawrence of Arabia.

The greens were perfect, very fast but fairly easy to read, of course the caddies make putting an easier task as they know them backwards. This photo gives you an idea of just how perfect the greens are.

John Martin aka Pothole like to dress like a Jaffa, he also often wears the orange outfit when he visits Pattaya bars.
