Several airlines fly daily to Bangkok and from here, Pattaya is less than a 90-minute drive away. Golfing groups will have a more efficient journey if they pre-arrange a transfer with their Pattaya hotel of choice.
WHERE TO STAY

It has a great central location, just metres from the beachfront, it adjoins a shopping mall and has excellent food and bar facilities. There is a pool and spa and the rooms are amazingly tranquil considering how busy Pattaya can be. Concierge staff can organise a round or two of golf as well as transfers to and from the Siam Country Club.
