Anyone played Kaeng Krachan lately? and can give an update on the overall condition of the course, please.

Played there last month. Overall, the course was in good condition although some of the greens on the mountain 9 are getting a bit patchy and they'd been heavily sanded.
As you might be aware, the Lake 9 is not being used so the course is Valley and Mountain.

Thank you lomuamart, I was not aware that the Lake course is not being used. If I remember correctly the Valley course is the one designed by Jack Nicklaus, correct?

No, the Nicklaus 9 is the Mountain course.

If you look on internet the Nicklaus organization had nothing whatsoever to do with Kaeng Krachan. It's just a rumour started to attract more customers!

I played a few days ago - course dreadful and greens worse. No more Sports Days so paid BHT1,400 for green fee and never again!!
How to ruin a good course in 12 months so sad.
