Greenwood Golf & Resort (Noble Place)

The Greenwood Golf and Resort (formerly Noble Place) makes heavy use of flowing fauna and extensive landscaping. Located among the tree lined hills of Chonburi the course and backdrop are very scenic.

Designed by the old master Peter Thomson, 5 times British Open champion, and Michael Wolverine, the ex-Noble Place is a thinking man’s, British style, course with many unique features.

Dotted with characteristic pot bunkers and areas of native lemon grass which require particular skills to escape from first time, there is also many strategically placed sand traps, but not a lot of water hazards. The 3 nine holes present a challenging layout requiring ingenuity, careful club selection and precision driving. Lots of fairway undulations gives a links feel to this hilly parkland setting. Each shot must be carefully anticipated as numerous pot bunkers await any errant shots.

The full service clubhouse overlooks courses A and B. After your round, you can enjoy have a cold beer on the large balcony and watch the sun set over the rolling Chonburi hills. If the weather is a little cloudy, you can feel like you are on a links course in Scotland or England.

In December 2006, the former Noble Place Golf Resort and Country Club was officially changed to Greenwood Golf and Resort. The owners have been upgrading the facilities and the course now sports new white sand bunkers and a revamped clubhouse with new locker rooms. Greenwood is still rough around the edges, but constantly improving quality means a good future for this well designed and favorite course among Pattaya locals.
