The unothordoxed design is evident throughout the course. For example, the Chiang Mai golf course is rather wide open with little water or bunkers coming into play. However, trees are a regular hazard and are even annoyingly situated directly in front of the tee-boxes on six holes.  Golfers have to overcome the trees either by lofting it over them or simply risk trying to pass the ball through the branches, which is possible now but unlikely in the future when the trees blossom and grow. Perhaps this design error can be modified in the future, as well as bringing more water and bunkers into play.

Golf Canyon plays to over 7,300 yards from the back-tees and while the course is of fairly flat terrain, be prepared to do a lot of additional walking as the distance from green-to-tee is long and often hilly. The front nine could be considered relatively easy by advanced golfers. However, for the back nine holes its another story. The back nine offers tighter and thicker grass areas, with a few water hazards, and are definitely the better of the two nines.

The clubhouse and other amenities are average and provide basic necessities for Chiang Mai golfers. Gold Canyon Golf Club maybe good for golfers who prefer rugged scenery and don’t mind spending a few hours golfing in a unique course layout.
