9 hole course. Terrific value for money.
Played with several farang mates on a Tuesday. Update on fees. 420 baht for 18 holes if you walk. (300 baht for 9 holes). Extra 500 baht for electric buggy if you don't wish to walk. Caddy compulsory. Tip "up to you". (we all gave our caddies 260 baht each for 18 holes.
Have played Surin several times over last 2 years. Course in great condition. Well manicured, lush fairways. Slick greens, many with interesting undulations. Good sand in bunkers.
8 of the 9 holes are a beaut challenge, requiring careful driver placement and club selection. A very enjoyable and relatively easy course for mid to high handicappers.
19th hole. Very pleasant undercover, tables, chairs etc. Beer, soft drinks etc.

I reside in the U.S. but travel to the Surin area a couple times a year. I was introduced to this course this past January, since then I have played 4 times. As written, there are better conditioned courses but this one is lots of fun. If you show up Mon-Wed-Frid around 12.30 -1.00 you'll always find a very competitive, and wager friendly game. If you struggle with the language barrier, some of the guys, along with a few caddies, speak English. This will make your experience and round very enjoyable. Good Luck. Enjoy!!
Best natural Par 3 ever, a must play

Recently visited Surin Army course for the weekend after playing most courses around Pattaya. Surun is not up to the standard of some but in the value for money range it holds it's own. The 2nd par 4 has players laying up at 180 yards before crossing a channel, a road and another channel only to have the large green positioned behind a large old tree. Handle your hybrid well and its great to land on the green for 2.
The 3rd Par 3 is the most spectacularly natural hole you are likely to find anywhere. From a small slightly elevated tee box you hit across a long wide natural swamp over another wide low tree (you find the flag as you look thru the low branches) and then onto a large wide narrow green. Hit short and it's into a large hidden bunker between the tree and the green, hit long and your ball runs over the back in into the rough, fantastic hole on this otherwise simple course. Aussies would love playing here finding it similar to some Oz country courses. The staff and starter in particular could not have been more friendly and accommodating.
Will definitely play again. ps not, that I made no mention of a fairway on the Par 3!!
Pleasant round of golf

I have also played this course many times and have always found other players, caddies and staff to be most helpful. The course is not the best in Thailand, but value for money it is very good. I will always play this course when in the area as I find it more welcoming, knowledgable and friendly caddies, and very accessible. If you want unfriendly and rude staff try Rooks
Bad service and not polite

I've golfed at this course probably about 100+ times and it's been transformed from a cow pasture to a decent course with some improvements. The problem is that they are incredibly rude and really look down on white people --at least the starter and the officials do. After playing on this course for many years, this week we were told to leave immediately while playing the 2nd hole because one of the guys in our group was wearing a T-shirt with no collar. The guy was super rude and eventually told us that "we don't ever need to come back here."
We complained to the superiors but hey, it's Thailand, so nothing happened except they refunded our money.
If you have the chance to go anywhere else to play, I'd go there instead.
Shocked and Disappointed
