Mobitee GPS Golf Assistant travels around the world in search of the best golf courses for you to play. Today we’d like to take you to one of the top tourist destinations of the world, with its name literally translated as “Land of the Free”.
It’s the only country in the whole Southeast Asia that managed to escape European colonization and home to the world’s largest crocodile farm, the largest fish and the smallest mammal, the tallest hotel, the largest gold Buddha… any clues?
Perhaps all of us have heard about the huge Buddha at least once, so you are right, today’s golf destination is… Thailand!
Apart from being the world’s number one orchid exporter, Thailand can also boast thousands of golf courses throughout the country, which attracts around six million tourists every year – interested in not only the country’s beauty but also in first-class golf courses.
Thailand’s golf heritage is around ninety years old and comprises more than two hundred golf clubs, some with thirty-six-holes.
Consisting of three distinct nines (named Mountain, Lake and Valley) – each has its own characteristics and all three, when combined, create interesting combinations which are equally enjoyable. It’s really worth playing all three, especially since carts are obligatory.
All the natural landscape advantages have been used to enhance the flavor of this golf course creation. Apart from usual hazards stopping you from reaching the green like bunkers and sand traps there are also numerous natural hazards: exposed rock formations, ponds and creeks. Natural vegetation is so rich here that every tee has a board describing a tree or shrub planted nearby to give the course a unique floral emphasis.
