Gassan Khuntan Golf and Resort

Gassan Khuntan Golf and Resort

Khuntan means “Devil Mountain’ and this 18-hole, 7,100 yard, par-72 creation from 2004 is devilishly difficult. Tucked in the ‘dragon-like’ folds of Lampang’s foothills on a riverbank, the distinctive design of the course, clubhouse and resort is pure “eye candy”. Its target golf/risk-reward style, the lack of a practice range, no golf course guidebook, and clever optical illusions make hitting the right shot, with the right club, to the right spot a true test. When you stand on the tee of the par-3, - 5th hole and face a mid-iron shot to a tiny island green, in the middle of a huge lake, into the teeth of swirling winds, you will know why this course is aptly named. Although club/shot selection are demanding, the relentless challenge only adds to the experience. To gain par takes focus, making the occasional birdie that much more special. For an unforgettable day of golf in a truly spectacular setting, head south.

Gassan Khuntan Golf and Resort fairway

Gassan Khuntan is located in Khuntan National park 500 meters above sea level. This very challenging golf course features Bermuda grass fairways and Tidwarf greens with impressing views on both sides of Doi Khuntan Mountain ranges and a scenic backdrop of the famous railway bridge & tunnel, and waterfalls. Adding to the scenery at Gassan Khutan are carefully planned and well tended flower beds that blend well with and emphasize the natural panoramic mountain views.

Gassan Khuntan Golf and Resort layout

Gassan Khuntan's design features many sharp doglegs, island greens, water to carry on many holes, and steep-edged grass bunkers throughout the golf course. The layout is on par to other famous world class championship golf courses.

Gassan Khuntan Golf and Resort greenHole 5 is an especially challenging 163 yard par 3 with a small island green. It offers true challenge to golfers of all handicaps. The ideal tee shot requires an accurate shot to the middle of the island green to avoid the surrounding water and green side bunkers. For those fortunate to land tee shot safely on the green, a justly rewarded birdie is a good possibility. Any tee shot that lands in the water, or in the greenside bunker will easily end up with a bogey or worse. Whatever the outcome, the breathtaking 360 degree scenic view of the mountains, with the famous Khuntan railway bridge as a backdrop is most impressive.

Gassan Khuntan Golf and Resort club houseThe clubhouse at Gassan Khuntan is naturally blended with surrounding scenic landscape, it is fully equipped with spacious locker rooms, a well stocked pro shop, and full service restaurant. Other Gassan facilities include chipping & putting greens, and a large driving range.

As of February 2007 Gassan Khuntan is now one of the 2 best courses in Chiang Mai area and a must play for any golf traveler to northern Thailand. The layout is not for the faint hearted, and golfers of all handicaps will be challenged to the fullest!
