Golf Digest (Malaysia) - - The Golf Life -

Hav­ing played on sev­eral golf cour­ses in Thai­land be­fore, I was keen to play at two cour­ses that were named on the itin­er­ary.

Or­gan­ised by the Tourism Author­ity of Thai­land, my re­cent FAM trip was a rather in­ter­est­ing one, as it co­in­cided with a char­ity tour­na­ment held at the Su­varn­ab­humi Golf and Coun­try Club. Over two days I was given the op­por­tu­nity to play at two golf cour­ses which was sit­u­ated about 45 min­utes from our place of stay, The Lit­tle Al­ley. As its name sug­gest, our ac­com­mo­da­tion turned out to be a lit­tle cosy bou­tique ho­tel lo­cated just off the busy area of Bangkok. As most reg­u­lar golf tourists will tes­tify, golf­ing in Thai­land is al­ways a spell­bind­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

The mo­ment we ar­rive at the golf course, the friendly and sooth­ing greet­ing of “Sawadeekha” by the fe­male cad­dies is next to none. Thai food is one of my favourites and as we all know, the va­ri­ety and qual­ity served at Thai clubs are al­ways pretty tasty. The golf cour­ses were mem­o­rable with our Malaysian en­tourage that did not seem to mind the bo­geys dur­ing our two-day tour. We should be play­ing golf like this more of­ten. Less pres­sure more fun!
