The overall experience of the Royal Thimou golf course was great. Indeed, the caddies were very welcoming and helpful. The greens were nicely maintained, however at some places it was a bit soaked. The bunker was a bit too damp and hard to hit out....More

Golf course adds a magnificient view to city of Thimphu. Centrally located and very large and well maintained. Place of many golf tournaments, considered quite challenging. Nice place to take a walk or appreciate Thimhu valley.

This is a very rudimentary not-too-challenging golf course ... if you want bragging rights you should play a round here ... otherwise I'd suggest taking a pass.

The only thing worthy of spending your money here is getting a golf shirt to tell people you played golf in Bhutan. This barely qualifies as a golf course. There is no golf course grass. The greens are like shag carpet. The bunkers are unraked....More

Golf in Bhutan - we had to do it. The course was surprisingly good - rental clubs - they worked, caddies - one was 12!!! If you are a golfer you must play here.

Believe it or not, the Royal Thimphu Golf Course was very challenging. It is a par 33 (about 2800 yds) with plenty of challenges. The water hazzards are man made and are strategically placed and effective. The fairways are narrow with punishing rough and the...More
