The first time was better

When I played the A / B class two years ago, I really wanted to go back and play the C / D class because the Q-School had taken the class. Desert and Link are already true names, as there are few shady trees, but the more bunker. Partly very long par 4 and par 5 holes ensure that you can write off GIR as a normal golfer. The fairways were very dry, so sometimes you were better off in the first cut. The greens presented themselves as usual fast and tricky, sometimes not very big. Unfortunately we have the same experience as Monty has to make with the caddies, which left a rather unmotivated impression. Maybe it was because they had to complete the long course on foot. But one was the friendlier in the pro shop.

Definitely worth it

We played a couple of places in Hua Hin in November 2017:

10.11. Lake View (B = Lake and D = Link)
11.11. Royal Hua Hin
11.12. Palm Hills
11.14. Majestic Creek

Here's something to Lake View;

The course consists of 4 9-hole courses, which can be played singly or in combination. We played B and D. Basically no problem, even if A + B or C + D are provided on the score cards.

Place A = Mountain = Looks good from afar...
Place B = Lake = Beautifully landscaped, lots of water. So on the one hand for the eye but also care in the tactics. Very nice is hole 5 (the island). Par3 with island green.
Place C = Desert = This also looked good from a distance...
Place D = Link = spacious, nice to play.

Overall, fairways and greens were in very good condition. Annoying but not to circumvent is the compulsory obligation of a caddy who (rightly, the, as the exclusively ladies) was very hard-working, but spoke as good as no English. Please always include the additional 300 TBH as an "expected" tip. Only in Majestik was openly pointed out, expected and partly demanded on all squares.

No preset table. I only found them in the pro shop in Palm Hills.

Accompanied by a "non-golfer" was no problem and also free. Which is not the rule. So this is forbidden in the Royal and costs in Majestik 400 TBH extra.

We have received material and also green fees through a local rental. A new complete set (Cobra iron with Graphite R, Callaway woods and an Odyssey Putter Pro 2) for 500 TBH per day and some 30% discount on green fees were decisive. There are several rentals, we have borrowed at "Fairways Hua Hin" 1 / 11Sasong Road.

We still lacked some of the places around Hua Hin, especially the "hip" Bayan and Black Mountain we have deliberately spared, but overall Hua Hin is indeed a rewarding golf destination.

About Hua Hin as a holiday resort may omit others, for us that was more Tourifang than authentic Thailand.

Caddies??

We have the space, A + B, played for the first time. The layout has been possible of course but drier than the others in the area.
Reception and small ProShop ok.
Needless time the mandatory caddies. Our seemed to have been forced to caddy existence. No English, no information, no smile, bat lead and no more.

Unfortunately, the Q-School in front of the door

... That's why on this day the area was very crowded. I have played the courses A + B. The layout of the two is interesting and challenging with many water hazards and waste areas. A lay-up was sometimes the better decision than the direct attack of the green. The fairways were in a passable condition, sometimes very dry and hard. The bunkers were difficult to estimate, partly ne shovel sand would have done well. The greens are fast and very demanding and despite Caddy help some 3-putts were there. You have to play a few times, like any foreign golf courses halt.
Preparing for Q-School of the Asian Tour has the place not noted (in a negative sense), the fact that it takes place there, but speaks for the facility.

Hua Hin's middle class...

... what is meant pejoratively in any case with the outstanding quality of the courses in and around Hua Hin! The plant now has 36 holes (4 x 9), of which we found the 9-hole loop "Desert Course" on interssantesten. The staff and caddies are - as everywhere in Hua Hin - extremely friendly and accommodating.
If you can look past a few small defects will be on the varied space (water, doglegs, trees!) Sure have fun.
The slightly longer journey to the north was, if at all short, Wartezeitenu outweighed on the round. As you manage every 36 (walking) because he is not as full as the "top dogs" Banyan, Black Mountain and Springfield, and because he is flat.
