If you live in Thailand or are planning a trip to Thailand, don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy this golf course. The beautiful golf course provides a challenge for experienced golfers and also provides an unforgettable experience for novice golfers.
Here are three of the best golf courses you should try while in Thailand.
- Alpine Golf & Sports Club, Bangkok
Alpine Golf & Sports Club is one of the best courses in Thailand, and was designed by renowned course architect Ronald M. Garl. Tiger Woods won the Johnnie Walker Classic PGA tournament here in 2000. While it’s meant to be a private members’ club, taking the course as a guest is pretty easy if you’re willing to pay a fortune.
Alpine Golf Club hosted the Johnnie Walker Classic Tournament in 2000 and 2004 as well as other important international competitions such as the 13th Asian Games in 1998, the Thailand Main Open Tournament in 1997, and the Asian Games in 1998.
- Red Mountain & Loch Palm, Phuket
MBK owns and manages Red Mountain Golf Club. Together with two sites in Phuket – Red Mountain and neighboring Loch Palm Golf Club – the group also operates and maintains two courses at Pathum Thani near Bangkok. The Red Mountain Trail is set in harsh rocky terrain. It is known locally as the most demanding course in Phuket and is regularly voted the best in Thailand.
Both golf courses are located in the resort neighborhood of Kathu, about 25 kilometers from the airport and 10 minutes from Patong beach or 15 minutes from Phuket Town. In the neighborhood, there are a variety of accommodation options for longer stays at MBK owned and managed by Tinidee Golf Resort Phuket.
- Santiburi Samui, Koh Samui
Over the years, the 18-hole championship golf course at the Santiburi Samui Country Club has been an important destination on the PGA Asian Tour. The ramps are about 10 minutes from the hotel and offer mountain breezes and great seaside views. For those who are new to the sport but want to learn, a special beginner package is offered.
The golf course stretches along the coast in the mountains north of Koh Samui, with the highest point at 290 meters and the lowest point at 30 meters above sea level. It stretches through mountainous terrain and descends sharply to the coast, providing stunning views of the sea and islands. This is the first and only golf course on the island that has been designed to international golf course standards.
