Palm Hills Golf Club located close to Hua Hin center the Hua Hin airport, is in the lower foothills. It was the first international standard Hua Hin golf course and opened in 1992. The following year Palm Hills hosted to the inaugural Thailand World Pro-Am tournament.
The golf course is laid out on a long strip of undulating terrain which gives the holes a Scottish 'links' feel, which is different from all the other layouts in the area. The Max Wexler design goes from east to west, with lakes at each end, separated by the clubhouse and an interesting rocky outcrop extending from the mountain range.
The Palm Hills course is lined with hundreds of palm trees and has plenty of hillside lies, thus the name Palm Hills. Thousands of brightly colored frangipani trees and bougainvillea shrubs add to the natural beauty. The back nine, which plays on top of the mountains and provides stunning views of the Gulf of Thailand and Hua Hin.
Palm Hills is one of the more popular Hua Hin golf courses. The Bermuda fairways are generous and broad, making the track playable for golfers of all abilities. However, strategically placed bunkers and water hazards, with extremely fast Tiff Eagle greens ensure that good scores are by no means easy to achieve. In fact, the greens can be some of the fastest in the area, especially when putting down grain.
