Thailand Golf Courses
We offer hole-in-one luxury holidays for everyone
Boasting over 250 golf courses, Thailand has become one of the best holiday destinations for golf enthusiasts. The affordably-priced rounds, stunning scenery, friendly people and myriad of courses provide every golfer with their perfect game. The first golf course in Thailand— Royal Hua Hin Golf Course, 3 hours south of Bangkok—was built by King Rama V in 1923. In 1964, the Thailand Golf Association held their first pro event, the Thailand Open. Since then, Thailand has held many international tournaments and added several championship courses to its tropical shores.
With so much diversity across Thailand’s landscape—the beaches of Phuket, mountains of Chiang Mai, bright lights of Pattaya, and the cityscape of Bangkok—it’s possible to play at a unique course each day of your holiday. Try a few of the country’s top courses, enjoy the scenery and treat yourself to a cold beer after a successful game in the year-round warm tropical weather.
Where to find the best golf in Thailand
Whether you’re a pro with your clubs packed and ready to go or you’re someone who is just starting out and wants to learn more about the game, a holiday to Thailand is just what you need. Tourist destinations in Thailand, including Bangkok, Phuket, Chiang Mai, Koh Samui and Pattaya all have international standard courses open to the public.
The popular island of Phuket is thought to offer some of the best golf in Thailand. Phuket has multiple international standard courses, excellent accommodation options, and plenty of entertainment for the non-golfers as well. Among the revered Phuket golf courses are the 36-hole Blue Canyon Country Club, the Red Mountain Golf Club and Laguna Phuket Golf Club. Pattaya, just 1 hour from Bangkok, Thailand’s capital, is another golfers heaven with several courses all within a 40-minute drive of the popular beach town. The most highly regarded courses include the Siam Country Club and the Laem Chabang International Country Club. If you are vacationing in Koh Samui, don’t miss the opportunity to check out the 18-hole championship course at Santiburi Samui Country Club, a stop on the PGA Asian Tour.
