Golf Courses in Pattaya, Thailand

map of Pattaya, Tiland golf courses

Golf in Pattaya can totally spoil you for returning home. You can play golf at a different course every day of a two week holiday and you still won't play all the international standard courses within an hour drive of Pattaya.

Many of Pattaya's courses are Country Clubs that have been designed by Nicklaus, Faldo, Thompson, Wolveridge, Dye and Trent Jones.

Expect manicured greens, raked traps and real live caddies. Courses in The Kingdom, especially on weekdays, tend to be much less crowded that what one sees in the west. And if you are a twosome, you can often play as a twosome.

Recommendation: If you plan on playing several rounds of golf, a Bt 700 membership in the Pattaya Sports Club will pay for itself in short order.

Most courses give discounts to club members; as do many hotels, restaurants, shops and bistros. Plan ahead and get details at the ... Pattaya Sports Club
