Silky Oak Country Club is a sister golf course to St. Andrews 2000 and also Rayong Green Valley and they all share the same clubhouse. The course itself is quite far from the clubhouse and takes about 15 minutes by golf cart so make sure you arrive in plenty of time for your tee time.
This is not a premium course but it’s ideal for beginners and high handicappers who are looking for somewhere to play without too much pressure – it also incredible value for money and one of the cheapest golf courses in Pattaya. Maintenance is a little bit inconsistent, especially during the dry season, when they have issues with water, and you should check with us before booking a round here. Silky Oak gets its name from the trees that have been planted around the course which are usually native to Australia and in certain lighting conditions the silver backed leaves can look like silk.
Silky Oak is a pretty standard 72-hole layout measuring just over 7000 hours which is quite short when compared to the other two courses in this family. Not too much trouble on the course with generous fairways and forgiving greens. You also get some great views as you get to the top part of the course – especially from the halfway house. The course is generally pretty easy and its main defence are the many elevation changes which can lead to uneven lies and water comes into play on at least eight of the holes.
The pick of the holes are the 4th and the 13th which are both doglegs and you have to play over water twice in order to get on the green.
The clubhouse is dingy and old-fashioned and in need of a renovation but the lockers room and the restaurant are adequate.
