Lake View is one of the few courses in Thailand without a Slope & Course Rating. Most societies when playing there use an SSS of 72 on A/B and 74 on C/D. Any other combination is usually 73. The Stroke index per hole is odd on A & C and even on B & D. If you play A & C then add 1 to the stroke index of every hole on C. If playing B & D subtract 1 from the stroke index of every hole on D.
A rating is only necessary when playing with handicaps. Professional- and open competitions don't need a rating. If Lake View joined the Thai Golf Association it would be forced to have a course- and slope rating. The main problem seems to be the enormous cost of getting a course rated. I have heard a quote that it costs about 1,000,000 Baht per 18 holes. I can believe this as I know the enormous amount of work and specialist knowledge needed to rate a course.
Can Chang Beer(& water) not afford 1million Baht? im sure there's a few of us on here who would do it for them for a lot less! i wonder what they will do to it 01.01.23 when all the memberships finish? ps ive played AB about 25 times and CD about 10 times and i just gone through all the holes in my head, im not sure i think C/D is two shots harder than A/B and especially for a SCRATCH golfer which is what a SSS is based on. I must say though that i cant get near that C6 even off the whites ...but im only little!
