Dancoon Golf Club
Holes / Par: 18/72
Designer: DC Golf Design
Established: 2008
Dancoon Golf Club opened in 2008 with a challenging 18-hole golf club in Khon Kaen and was the first international visitor friendly facility in Thailand’s north east section of Issan. It is well worth a visit for any golfers in Issan as it is a nice layout with some difficult holes and has a good clubhouse. The restaurant features Thai and International cuisine is a friendly golf environment. Dancoon Golf Club is located 15 kilometers from the Khon Kaen city center or 10 minutes by car from the Khon Kaen airport.

Two years later Dancoon Golf Club hosted the 2010 Asian Seniors. The Issan golf course is laid-out over flat terrain. Fairways are generous lined with smallish trees and easy to hit from semi-rough are found on most holes. Well-maintained Bermuda grass greens are tricky with subtle undulations that make for difficult two putting.

Siharat Dechochai Golf Course
Holes / Par: 18/72
Designer: Royal Thai Army
Established: 1986
Siharat Dechochai Golf Course originally has a 9 holes course and then was expanded to 18 holes, par 72 in year 2011. The expansion to 18 holes has added to the experience with some holes benefitting from length of shot, others demanding position off the tee. Greens are reasonable and consistent; some of the newer greens do have significant slopes on them. Bunkers are also reasonable. There are several water features which come into play, especially on two holes which do require a longer drive. Even if not reaching the standard of other courses, it does make for a pleasant round, with some interesting holes; keeping to your handicap will not be easy. Because of the recent changes the score card does not have stroke indices; no doubt this will be rectified in the future. The club house has service bar/restaurant, food & drink and a shower too.

Sriburiruk Golf Club
Holes / Par: 9/36
Designer: Mr. Wisut Waithongkham
Established: 2007
Sriburiruk Golf Club is a good little course that has some interesting challenges, playing to handicap is not easy. This is a nice little golf course that provides an alternative to some of the longer courses. But it is a 9 holes golf course it can get busy at times, with groups starting as you are finishing your front 9.

There are 3 sets of tees: ladies (red 2760 yards), men’s front (white 2977 yards); men’s back (blue 3100 yards). After the first 100 yards off the tee the fairways are reasonably generous and have plenty of grass on them. Greens are of a reasonable size and consistent, slopes and undulations are common. Bunkers are not the best and would benefit from more work and more sand. Water hazards are present on many of the holes, sometimes being a challenge, other times not so intrusive. The owner is constantly working to improve the course and this should be commended. The club house has service bar/restaurant, food and drink.

Ubol Ratana Dam Golf Course
Holes / Par: 18/72
Designer: EGAT
Established: 1986
Ubol Ratana Dam Golf Course there are 18 holes, par 72. The most mature of the local courses which, in the author’s opinion, provides a good test of golf; position off the tee is rewarded more than length. There are 3 sets of tees: ladies (red 5505 yards); men’s front (white 6381 yards); men’s back (blue 6714 yards). The fairways are spacious, lined with trees, with lush fairways. Being close to the Ubolratana Reservoir there is all year round no shortage of water for irrigation. The greens are medium in size and very good quality. But the Greens have to be precisely alluded to the correct position otherwise it is almost impossible to keep the ball on the green. The many water hazards on 11 of the 18 holes also require furthermore to play tactically-wise.

Location: 1 Moo 1 Ubolratana District, Khon Kaen
