“Success in this game depends less on strength of body than strength of mind and character.” – Arnold Palmer
We are happy to share the first in a series featuring Panorama Golf and Country Club / Thailand Tournament Golf Experience for the Player.
Panorama Golf and Country Club is fast becoming a preferred golf course by local players, the professional golf circuit in Thailand, and golf tournament organizers. Quality Golf Asia was retained as the management company for Panorama in 2009. Tony Taylor, Executive Director / Senior Superintendent, has been steadily implementing improvements to bring the course to tournament standards. As part of this series, we hope to convey the important decision factors that have supported Panorama’s success, and it’s growing reputation as a tournament golf course!

Golf Course Tournament Preparation
Preparation of a golf course for tournament events is perhaps better approached as a marathon versus sprint. For the golf course owner, a tournament-ready golf course brings great return on investment. Considering play continuity and course health which has a direct effect to attracting golfers. The ‘marathon’ approach is a cornerstone strategy for successful championship golf courses around the world, as expressed by Tony Taylor of Quality Golf Asia. Here’s an article about Tony Taylors’ experience and contributions to the game of golf.
My Golf Experience at Panorama
I’ve enjoyed playing Panorama for the past three years. I can share personally share that the course is always improving and one of my favorite places to play. With level tees and fast rolling greens, this is truly great golf relaxation; in the midst of nature, and enjoying temperatures a bit cooler than other golf courses in Bangkok. If you enjoy playing golf in near tournament-ready conditions, this is a great track to experience. The greens roll impeccably well; very healthy and accurate. The fairways bring challenge for players at every level. The views and the air at Panorama are quite refreshing, and the facilities ample. Carts are recommended for leisure golf.
Lodging at Panorama
Panorama’s facility management team has recently taken on expansion of lodging.

“Caddies good – course is fantastic from the first hole which has a beautiful view, Very well laid out in good condition if a bit dry due to the drought. Greens are true and fast – but don’t be above the hole – easy to do an Ernie Els !! Bit of a long drive and up ion the hills. on my list of MUST PLAY did not stay in the hotel ” – Peter from London
” A little far out of town but well worth it”
“Wasn’t sure what to expect with very little rain in this part of the country but was very pleasantly surprised with the course. The layout is incredible and when playing every hole you are not disturbed by other folk wandering on to your fairway.
This course should be on your to do list, A word of warning the greens are very fast and it takes a little time to work that out. Brilliant golf course. The food in the club rooms is first class as well.” – Graham from Brisbane, Australia
