It is sometimes easy to get carried away talking about how wonderful playing golf in Thailand really is, especially as I live here. Therefore, it was rather refreshing to hear from some overseas journalists that they also agree with me; playing golf in Thailand is a great experience.
A few months ago I hosted sixteen editors and journalists representing golf magazines in the USA and Europe. They sampled some of Thailand’s best golf courses including Thai Country Club, Chiang Mai Highlands, and Siam Country Club.
The party included respected journalists from Golf Monthly and the Daily Telegraph in the UK and the massively influential Golf Digest from the United States. Journalists get to travel lot as it goes with their territory, and some I have met in the past can be quite hardnosed and hard to impress. This group were however in great form, and already the magic of the Thai golf courses plus the people and the culture has begun to weave its magic spell.
