 The Amata Spring Country Club is a private golf and country club near to Bangkok, the capital of Thailand. It hosts two high profile golf tournaments which were introduced in 2006. The Royal Trophy is a team competition between Europe and Asia, and the Honda LPGA Thailand is the first LPGA Tour event in Thailand. These are currently the two richest golf events held in Thailand.

This course is home to one of the famous par 3’s in world golf. The 17th 130-yard hole, has a floating green that can be lengthened and shortened using underwater pulleys You have to board a boat manned by two guys dressed as sailors which take you out to the green. When you’re on the green it actually moves with the flow of the water.
