Welcome to Golf in a Kingdom
The term, ‘tropical paradise’ is thrown around quite loosely these days. It’s taken on an almost mythical quality, as if these places no longer exist. Yet everything we associate with such a fantastical place – warm, blue-green waters, remote island getaways, lush luxuriant landscapes, friendly locals, affordable prices, endless white-sand beaches, carefree sensibility, breathtaking golf courses and exotic cuisine – are a reality when you Golf In A Kingdom.
Regal trappings permeate most everything in Thailand, especially golf holidays in the realm. After all, it’s not every day you play Golf in a Kingdom.
Most Asian countries have but a handful of golf courses; Thailand boasts more than 260, the best of which are part of Golf In A Kingdom. All are available to overseas golf visitors. While the cost of golf – as well as lodging, food and entertainment – are extremely low by North American and European standards, the quality of the golf – and hotels, as well as the cuisine après-golf options – remain utterly first class.
