Has your regular golf group kicked around the idea of taking a Thailand golf trip together? Well it’s time to stop talking and take action. Here are the first two of six steps to organize your Thailand golf and insure you have a successful Thailand golf holiday.
1. Pick a Group Leader
One of the key factors in ‘making it successfully happen’ is to pick the right Thailand golf group leader. Don’t just pick the best Thai golfer. Far more important are to designate someone that:
A - Is responsible, has organization skills and can be counted on to take initiative, follow-up and follow through
B - Is a consensus builder the group is comfortable with
C - Has good communication skills to communicate both with your tour provider and all group members on a regular basis
Often someone (usually one with plenty of initiative or who has been a Thailand golf vacation before) will take it upon himself to put together a group trip and recruit participants, perhaps on a regular recurring annual basis. This can work fine.
Another approach that can work equally well is a Golf Society / League or less formal group of friends who take turns passing the group leader responsibility around for different golf trips. Just be sure to pick ONE leader for each trip, or else you will get bogged down endlessly with different members going in different directions, considering endless options and nobody ever making any decisions. The Thailand golf group leader does not need to do all the work himself though, he can get assistance or delegate tasks to others.
