Golf in Thailand

I am currently travelling around Thailand as a guest of Golfasian, the leading golf tour operator in South East Asia.

I am completing familiarisations and site inspections of the best golf courses and resorts in the country. I have visited Black Mountain, Banyan Tree and Springfield at Hua Hin in the south of Thailand, as well as Siam Country Club, Laem Chabang and Thai Country Club at Pattaya.

The Plantation course at Siam Country Club is hosting the 2015 Thailand Open next week, and was being set up for that event when I visited. The Old Course is home to the Honda USLPGA event in 2016.

I also visited some great golf courses near Bangkok. Nikanti Country Club is a brand new “6 star” private golf club that has opened to rave reviews … awesome stadium type course that will host major tournaments into the future. Suwan Country Club is a more traditional golf course that has hosted many tournaments including the 2013 Thailand Open. Lots of water carries and large undulating greens, make this a challenging and picturesque golf experience.

The magical Kingdom of Thailand is one of the best destinations for a golfing holiday. From great golf courses to the cultural experience of the Thai people, its weather, cuisine and bustling lifestyle, this is a golf trip to dream about and to plan future trips around.
