The Chiang Mai Highlands Golf Club opened in 2005 and significantly added to the quality of Chiang Mai golf courses. The drive to Highlands from Chiang Mai leads through the stunning landscape, in an eastern direction passing rice fields and plantations into the mountains. The Chiang Mai Highlands golf course is built on a 'power spot' - the hermitage of Kuba Sivichai (the revered monk who founded the famous Doi Suthep temple). This site is breathtaking in every direction. Its tranquility, high elevation, cold climate, fresh air, pure water, and fertile soil, form the perfect place for the 27-hole layout. Lee Schmidt of Schmidt-Curley Design from the USA and the same designer as Mission Hills, Amata Spring, and Siam CC was the course's mastermind. After only two years of operation, Chiangmai Highlands catapulted onto the international golf scene as one of the best golf experiences in Asia. Since then Chiangmai Highlands has won many prestigious awards. In 2007, Chiang Mai Highlands Golf & Spa Resort was voted #3 for 'Best New Golf Course in Asia' by Asian Golf Monthly.
In 2013, the same publication awarded Chiang Mai Highlands as the 'Best Value for Money Golf Course in Asia” and the “Best Golf Resort in Asia” followed in 2015. The Highlands course itself is exciting and challenging for a player of any level and offers the choice of 5 different tee boxes. Featuring Paspalum grassed fairways and Tiff-eagle grass greens ensure excellent hitting surfaces and faster more consistent greens year round. The bunker complexes are deep and punishing, but lend a nice contrast to frame each hole.
