AN EYE-OPENING TWO DAYS OF GOLF
ALREADY A GOLF TOURISM POWERHOUSE, THAILAND’S GOLF COURSES CONTINUE TO AMAZE GOLFERS, AS CORNELIUS MOREIRA DISCOVERS.
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!
