I've played Singha park several times and rate it very good. A good mixture of long and short holes. I used four different clubs on the par 3s. For the sports day fee of 1000b it is a bargin. All my caddies have been good and put forth an effort. Out of the 75 or so courses I've played in Thailand I rate it in my top ten.

Played here twice in 2015. We did a mini tour of the local courses and this was the last on the list. It is fair to say that it is a young course and will improve within 3 or 4 years when the trees are mature. This course is on the Asian Tour and rightly so. It is well designed, laid out and well maintained. The fairways are a pleasure to play off with a good cushion of grass and I would think that they must be regularly watered as you can take a divot without the fear of damaging your clubs. The greens are as tricky as they come with subtle borrows and some are scary fast. I cannot say anything bad about this course as from the minute you arrive you will be impressed with the club house and facilities. Changing rooms/showers are 2nd to none. Restaurant is a delight to use with a good choice of food at very reasonable prices. The caddies were very friendly both times with good course knowledge. My only negative is that when you have finished a hole there are no signs to the next tee. Do not hesitate to play here, you will not be disappointed. In fact the Khon Kaen town is a good venue for a golfing break with several decent courses and places to go in the evening. We are average players around 18 handicap.

Played Singha park 4 times in March/Aptil 2014 and 5 times so far this trip March 2015 the latest game here was today17th March 2015.
Last year we enjoyed the course so much that on returning to Khon Kaen we were happy to pay the full price on the Monday however on sports days Tueasdays and Wednesdays it is a 1000 thai baht approximately £20 or $34 us. my handicap is 8 and the White tees measure 6211 yards and takes the 5 6 and 7iron out of play. Therefore I play it off the Blue tees at 6840 yards. For any very low handicappers they have black tees at 7502 yards though you would have to check if you could play them.
I fully agree with the previous comments that it is flat generously wide fairways with plenty of bunkers and still young trees therefore shade is at a premium, though there are ample refreshment stops on the way. however what makes this course awesome is the condition of the fairways and the billiard like putting surfaces though there are some very undulting greens and others with sneaky breaks. miss the green at your peril because getting down is 3 is not always a formality let alone 2. All the caddies I have had have been good or excellent.
The clubhouse facilities are 1st class and considering the venue food and drink are good value
A bit disappointing

In the absence of any golfing talent, I get much of my enjoyment of the game from the pleasant scenery and forest you find on so many courses here. Not at this course; trees are not mature, so there is very little shade, and it is very flat. There are bunkers dotted everywhere which represent, perhaps, an interesting challenge to the skilful player, but are a tedious chore to the hacker. Finally, given the buildup this course gets, one was surprised to find one green unplayable and another in poor nick.
Now please a good player come on and tell others how wonderful it is!
