The Kingdom of Thailand is no postage stamp. Similar in landmass to California, it stretches even greater distance north to south, meaning the variation in climate and terrain is profound. This is good news for visiting golfers. Kingdom courses reflect this geographic diversity and golf travelers can hew to the country’s endless coastline, venture into tropical jungles, experience cities or find a remote stretch of sand and get away from it all.
Bangkok is a city of immeasurable delights: beautiful temples and palaces, classical Thai dancing, kick boxing, boat rides, shopping bargains, restaurants and international world-class hotels offer an incomparable range of food and facilities. Of course, a wide range of bars and discotheques of every description enliven the legendary night scene.
Whether you are traveling to Bangkok for leisure or business, a game of golf could be just what you need. You’ll play some of the world’s most distinguished courses. Then relax in a luxurious and comfortable hotel, enjoy fine dining and an abundance of leisure activities. Here are Bangkok’s premium golf courses and resorts recommended by Golf in A Kingdom:
