Transporting you to a world of Buddhist temples, elephants and litchi orchards, a golf vacation in Thailand will forever fuel your imagination.
Whether you choose to play on the Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai courses to the north, surrounded by lush mountains, on any of the countless golf resorts surrounding the capital city of Bangkok, or on the fairways of the oceanside resorts you’ll find in mythical Phuket, the scenery will always be jaw dropping. Designed, in general, by some of the most renowned golf architects, the 120 or so
prestigious Thai courses are known for being difficult to tame. Rivers, streams, lakes and ponds are omnipresent… as are the sand traps. On the flip side, a smiling caddy (a
mandatory service) will be there giving you all the advice you need for a better score. With the exception of September, when the hot southwest monsoon is at its most
intense, any other time of year is perfect for visiting Thailand. Going right in the middle of the dry season—between November and February—would be a perfect option.
