Thailand is Asia's most popular golf destination for its great value, royal hospitality and exciting cultural attractions and nightlife. Golf in Thailand is well developed and abundant, with more than 300 golf courses in the country, and many of them of high, international standard, in many cases as good if not better than clubs in the west, including top conditions to service and clubhouse facilities.
Bangkok is the epicenter of Thailand, a sprawling city of 10 million residents and, unfortunately, 3.5 million cars. It makes getting around a bit of a nightmare at times, but many of the country's great sights are here, too, from the King's River to palaces and, of course, its nightlife at Red Light Districts such as Soi Cowboy.
Getting to the 60 golf courses isn't always easy here due to the sprawl and traffic, but since you're likely flying into Bangkok for your holiday, it makes sense to spend a few days on either end of the trip and play convenient courses such as Muang Kaew or Thai Country Club.
Golf in Pattaya
Southwest of Bangkok by about two hours around the Gulf of Thailand, Pattaya is a popular and lively beach city with lots of after hours action on Walking Street, from bars to shopping, and there is a high amount of golf courses in the area, all about a two-hour drive east of Bangkok.
The golf is gently mountainous at clubs such as Siam Country Club's Old and Plantation courses, which host an LPGA event each winter and is relatively inexpensive compared to Bangkok and Phuket.
