Unveiled in 2005, the Chiang Mai Highlands Golf Club made an indelible mark on the tapestry of Chiang Mai's golfing landscape, elevating its quality to new heights. Embarking on the journey from Chiang Mai to Highlands, one is treated to a visual symphony, an eastern-bound route that meanders through emerald rice fields and thriving plantations before ascending into the embrace of the mountains.

The very grounds upon which the Chiang Mai Highlands golf course stands are steeped in significance, as they encompass a 'power spot'—the sacred abode of Kuba Sivichai, the venerated monk who laid the foundation for the iconic Doi Suthep temple. This site presents an awe-inspiring panorama in every direction. The convergence of serenity, elevated altitude, crisp climate, invigorating air, pristine water, and fertile earth renders it the ideal canvas for a 27-hole masterpiece.

Conceived by Lee Schmidt of Schmidt-Curley Design, the visionary behind renowned courses like Mission Hills, Amata Spring, and Siam CC, the course's brilliance is a testament to his ingenuity. Mere two years post its inauguration, Chiangmai Highlands catapulted onto the global golfing stage, lauded as one of Asia's preeminent golfing havens. Subsequent years have seen an array of accolades grace Chiangmai Highlands. In 2007, Asian Golf Monthly conferred upon Chiang Mai Highlands Golf & Spa Resort the distinguished title of 'Best New Golf Course in Asia.' This recognition was followed by the 2013 honor of being deemed the 'Best Value for Money Golf Course in Asia,' and culminated in 2015 when the same publication bestowed the title of “Best Golf Resort in Asia.”

The Highlands course itself embodies a realm of excitement and challenge, catering to golfers of all skill levels and presenting a spectrum of five distinct tee boxes. The fairways, adorned with Paspalum grass, and the Tiff-eagle grass greens combine to offer immaculate hitting surfaces, ensuring swifter, more consistent greens all year round. The bunkers, profound and formidable, stand as both a test of skill and a visual frame for each hole. A striking feature of the course is the presence of over 130 fairway and greenside bunkers, most adorned with imposing front edges.

The greens at Chiangmai Highlands exude character, featuring gentle undulations and typically measuring around ten on the Stimp-meter. Firm yet receptive, these greens gracefully accommodate well-struck iron shots. The nuances of many greens sloping from front to back introduce an element of strategy, compelling golfers to harness their prowess and rely on the insights of knowledgeable local caddies to navigate the path to successful regulation putting.
