during-late ‘80s to the early ‘90s-golf courses sprouted all over the country from north to south, especially over the six main tourist districts. The golf courses in Thailand are concentrated in Phuket, Hua Hin -Kanchanaburi, Bangna- Trad-Pattaya, Bangkok, Khao Yai-Nakhon Ratchasima, and Chiangmai – Chaingrai areas.
Pattaya may be known as the “Paradise Resort of the East” but it is also a place where some of the nicest golfing greens are found. Pattaya is a golfer’s haven with more than 20 world-class golf courses in and around the Chonburi area. Each golf course is well maintained, equipped with facilities that can only be described as world-class. Players are assured of a delightful tropical climate all year round. If it rains in one area, it doesn’t mean that it also rains in some other parts of Pattaya.
Package tour centers can arrange a place where you can play golf any day of the year, not allowing the wet season to spoil your lawn fun. While the quality of the courses is generally in tip-top international standard, prices for the facilities are not. Visitor green fees on weekdays start from Bt.300 to Bt.700 and during weekends green fees for non club-members range from Bt.800 – Bt.1,200 + Cart rental is Bt.500 – Bt.600, clubs rental Bt.300.-.Bt.500, shoes rental Bt.100-Bt.250 and umbrella rental is Bt.50. Regular stops at the relaxing watering holes encourage peak performance on the curses.
The luxurious clubhouse facilities and services complete a memorable round of golf wherever you play. Plus, at every course, you will be welcomed by ever friendly and courteous a staff characteristic of the Land of Smiles. Indeed it is no hyperbole to claim that hardly any resort in the world can offer so many courses of such high standards at such reasonable prices.
