Going Golfing In Thailand

Thailand is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Tucked away in a corner of Southeast Asia, Thailand is popular for its beaches, the natural flora and fauna and the gorgeous buildings in Bangkok. Most people visit Thailand in order to explore the many beaches and take a break from their busy schedules. However, did you know that Thailand also has a bustling golf scene? There are some very beautiful championship golf courses spread throughout the country for people who like the sport.

One of the world’s most popular golf clubs is located in the Hua Hin district, at a distance of around 200 km from Bangkok. It’s a gorgeous golf course that’s been listed as one of the ‘best’ by the Asian Golf Monthly, and was also ranked in one of the Top 1000 in the World by Rolex. For people who are looking to play golf in another country, visiting Thailand is a great option. However, if you really want to make the best of your vacation, here’s how you should plan your golfing trip in Thailand.

Talk to a Tourist Agency

There are many tourist agencies that offer custom packages for people interested in Thailand golf holidays. Rather than paying for everything on your own, you should seriously consider a custom designed package from a tourist agency. Tourist agencies throughout Thailand generally have deals with local resort owners, hotels and clubs. They are able to get a much lower price than what you would have to pay if you booked the trip on your own. When you first consult with a tourist agency, ask them about any preset packages they might offer. Golf vacations are becoming more and more popular throughout Thailand, so many tourist agencies now accommodate travelers who are interested in playing the game on their trip to Thailand.

Plan Your Trip

If you have bought a custom designed package, it’s time for you to start planning your trip. Most of your day will be spent on the course, so it’s important that you plan everything carefully. You can play golf during the day and visit some of the most popular attractions in the area during the night. Most golf clubs and resorts also offer luxury accommodation, so if you are willing to stay nearby, you can make a booking beforehand. Plan your trip carefully before you embark on your journey.

For starters, you should create a proper itinerary. Decide on all the places that you are going to visit beforehand, and also write down the dates on which you intend to visit these locations. If you are traveling with a group of tourists, you will probably receive the whole itinerary of your trip several days in advance. Also, since this is a tropical country, you should generally pack loose and comfortable clothing. Try not to pack too much clothing, as that will prove to be a burden while you travel throughout the country.
