Frequently Asked Questions
Here we answer some of the most common questions.
In Thailand when is the best time of day to play?
Early morning from 06:30 am and late afternoon from 16:00 are the coolest times of day and most popular tee-off times. A few courses example Windmill golf course have night time golf with flood lights, expect to pay more for this but it is worth considering for the experience alone.
Is any time of year the best for playing golf in Thailand?
Golf can be played all year round even during the rainy season as downpours are short lived and seldom interrupt a game for more than 15minutes. In addition you will be pre warned by a strong breeze accompanied by darkening of the sky this will give you and your group ample time to take cover for the short duration of the downfall. With all this said we do recommend the cooler months from November to February.
Is it expensive to play golf in Thailand?
The good news is that it is not expensive with reasonable green fees rates throughout Thailand . Phuket Koh Samui and Hau hin are home to some of the world’s top class courses designed by professional golfers such as Jack Nicklaus, so expect to pay higher green fees at these clubs.
Can I book a caddie?
Yes in addition they are inexpensive and mandatory at most clubs. Having your own caddies or caddies is one of the pleasures of playing golf in Thailand. You will find them helpful and always smiling even if you hit a wild stroke. Expect to pay THB300 per caddie per round being so inexpensive you should consider hiring a second caddie to hold an umbrella and keep you in the shade as you walk round and make your strokes.
Will language be a barrier?
Many Thais especially ones that you will find on the golf course speak very good English. These fellow Thai players are friendly and will be very willing to help with any questions on the golf course or anything else for that matter.
