A Thailand golf holiday is the best. Thailand is one of the most visited holiday destinations in the world in its own right and is also one of the fastest-growing golf holiday destinations in the world. There is something magical about playing golf in Thailand. Maybe it is something to do with being able to merge a stunning sub-tropical holiday experience with some fantastic golf options.
There are so many reasons why people visit Thailand not just for a golf holiday, but a holiday in general. Although international visitors are limited at the time of writing due to COVID-19, hopefully, we will be back to normal soon.
Here are 5 reasons why you need to book a Thailand golf holiday post-COVID-19. Believe us when we say it will be a choice you will never regret.
1. Perfect climate for a Thailand Golf Vacation
The all-year-round high temperatures that douse Thailand in the beautiful sun rays are always a massive factor for holidaying here. Because of the stunning climate, playing golf in Thailand is a very comfortable experience. This is why a Thailand golf holiday is the best.
The temperatures very rarely go under 30 degrees. The only places in Thailand that are not blistering hot all year round is in Chiang Mai in the North of the nation. The best time of the year to visit Thailand with the least rainfall and humidity is between November and April. Between May and October, you might stumble into a bit of rain, but you will most definitely experience the humidity of what is now called ‘Green Season’.
Playing golf between November and April is usually the best time to play in Thailand in terms of the least rainfall and humidity, but is also a time when the courses are at their busiest. Between May and October, you might get some rainfall, but the courses are relatively quiet, so it’s easy to get your desired course and tee-off time.
2. Affordable Thailand Golf Holidays
Although since the world economic crash, the Thai baht has been very strong against Western currencies, Thailand is still a place of undoubted value for money. Whether we are talking about finding affordable golf courses or all the other things that create a holiday experience, Thailand pretty much has it all in terms of value.
You can get yourself a hotel room with air-con in Thailand for as little as 500 THB per night. Extremely nice rooms in 5-star resorts can cost as little as 2,000 THB. One of the best value in terms of accommodation is renting out a villa. Some holiday villa rentals cost as little as 5,000 THB per night and have 4-beds that can sleep 8 people or 4 couples. Put this together with such cheap food, cheap shopping, and much more, and Thailand is still one of the most affordable places in the world.
When it comes to an affordable Thailand golf holiday, now is a great time to support the courses post-COVID.
If you are looking for the most affordable golf courses in Thailand, you need to visit the Pattaya region. The city is probably one of the cheapest golf holiday destinations in Thailand. Because there are 21 courses in a 45-minute drive of Pattaya, this has driven down the prices and is the cheapest place to play golf in Thailand with the most choice.
3. Diverse selection of Thailand holiday destinations
Thailand is widely known and loved across the world for its fascinating culture, earth-shattering cuisine, blood-boiling temperatures, stunning natural wonders, and its hedonistic nightlife. But not many people ever talk about a Thailand golf holiday. Why is that? Thailand should already be known as the ultimate place to visit for a golf holiday.
Thailand is a place that successfully merges many factors to create the ultimate golf holiday destination. Not only does it have an eclectic choice of courses across the nation that suits every ability and budget, but the golf scene also leverages that famous Thai hospitality and intertwines it with your golf experience to take the service to the next level.
If you choose to play golf in one of Thailand’s major tourism locations, you can also take advantage of a vast cacophony of hotels with all price ranges and all the local amenities such as top-notch international eateries, nightlife options, and world-class shopping. Some would say that playing golf in Thailand is like basking amidst the best holiday destination in the world that has a vast range of top-notch courses! And that’s exactly what it is!
– Tropical Thailand Golf Holiday
If you are looking for a tropical-style Thailand golf holiday, we would recommend that you visit somewhere such as Phuket Island, Phang Nga, or Koh Samui. However, if you are looking for somewhere that is a bit cooler but still offers top-notch courses and tourism amenities and options, we would highly recommend you play golf in Chiang Mai. For affordable golf, nowhere in Thailand can beat the choice and prices in the Pattaya region. There really is a Thailand golf holiday destination for everyone.
4. Fantastic choice of golf courses in Thailand
Some people come to Thailand just to enjoy a golf holiday. Playing golf in Thailand is pretty amazing. There are some top-notch golf courses in Thailand in major tourist destinations such as Phuket, Pattaya, Bangkok, Phang Nga, Chiang Mai, and Hua Hun. The nation has some stunning courses such as the courses at Siam Country Club in Pattaya, Red Mountain GC and Blue Canyon Country Club in Phuket, Amata Springs in the Bangkok Countryside, and Black Mountain in Hua Hin. The courses are always in immaculate condition and you will get a Thai caddy, which means you won’t have to carry your clubs or clean your balls, which always gives me a bad back.
From major championship courses that host international tournaments to small and laidback courses that offer affordable prices such as Emerald GC in Pattaya and the Phuket Country Club, there is a vast range of quality courses in Thailand for players of all abilities and budgets.
5. Thai Golf Hospitality
When it comes to hospitality, charm, and smiling faces, nobody does it quite like Thailand. The country is known as ‘The Land of Smiles’, and it is infectious when you are enjoying a Thailand golf holiday. Whether you are turning up at a top-notch eatery, to a hotel, or for a round of golf, there always seems to be a hoard of Thai females waiting to greet you like a long-lost explorer, hands clasped together while saying ‘Sawadee Ka’ in unison. It gets me every time!
Hospitality is also big on Thailand’s golf courses. One of the best parts about playing golf in Thailand is that at many courses is mandatory to have a caddy.
As you can see, it’s the perfect time to book a Thailand golf holiday to support the local scene post-COVID. If you are reading this after the travel restrictions have been lifted, make sure you book a golf holiday in Thailand right away. It’s the best golfing decision you will ever make.
