Gold Canyon Golf Scorecard
Opened in 2009 and located around 1 to 1.5 hours from ChiangMai, Gold Canyon is set in a rural area not far from Lamphun. Gold Canyon is surrounded by orchards, woodlands, and canyons. The rural setting provides a relaxing and scenic location and the ChiangMai golf course is enjoyable for all.
Trees are often a hazard and some are situated almost directly in front of many of the tee boxes. Some of the original trees have been removed improving the access to some of the holes, golfers may still have to avoid the fairway hazards by hitting over them or simply risk trying to pass the ball through tree branches.
Gold Canyon plays to over 7,300 yards from the back tees and while the course is of fairly flat you need to be prepared to do a lot of walking as the distance from green to tee is often long and undulating. The 1st hole is wide open with a huge fairway and relatively easy. The course then gets tougher as you progress and the back nine is much more challenging than the front. There are a few tight driving holes but most fairways widen out around 200 yards off the tees. Three of the par 4 holes would almost be considered par 5’s on some courses.
