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.

Hua Hin

hua-hin-golfFor more than 75 years, Hua Hin has been a popular seaside holiday area for affluent Thais. Although it still retains the intimacy of a village, it has successfully incorporated modern luxuries without the commercialism of other resorts, and the area has kept much of its old world charm and colorful ways. Today Cha Am, Hua Hin’s northern neighbor, is still a thriving fishing village with its own local fleet.

The oldest and most traditional Thailand beach resort combines the attractions of a modern holiday destination with the charm and fascination of a still active fishing port. And while most other Thai holiday destinations cater mainly to foreign tourists, Hua Hin is a holiday resort for foreigners and Thais.
