Q is for asking Questions. When planning a Thailand golf vacation always good to ask allot of questions. My posts can never answer everything about Thailand golf holidays, or those dicey questions about how to improve your golf game when in Thailand. Fortunately there are many golf websites that are good resources for getting information on Thailand golf and golf instruction.
My golf travel company has information and photos from the top 60 Thailand golf courses. For even wider Thailand golf course data Thaigolfer.com has information and comments on all 200 Thailand golf courses. For Thailand golf lessons, golfthink.com is a good site as well as a good contact if you are interested in finding information about what type of golf lessons are available, especially in Bangkok.
For more generic golf tips my favorite site is golfdigest.com. While not specific to Asian golf, there is an instruction section and tips from teachers including David Leadbetter, Hank Haney, Rick Smith, Jim Flick and Butch Harmon. Golf digest also has an impressive playing staff with tips from Tiger Woods and other great players. There is a index where you can find tips for specific problems such as curing your slice and hook, hitting it further, and improving consistency. A neat feature is the screen captures of different golf professional’s swings. Registration is required, but it’s free. Slow motion images of Tiger Woods , Phil Mickelson, Jim Furyk, Vijay Singh, Michelle Wie (not Thai, but at least Asian), Annika Sorenstam, and Karrie Webb to name a few.
Other sites I look at when I have questions about my golf swing are thegolfchannel.com, golf.com, run by Golf Magazine, golfspan.com, and the PGA of America site where you can even ask a professional golfer a question and he will give you an answer.
The only thing I would mention is to be careful with some of the information out there. There are many Thailand golf sites on the internet, and as with any information presented on the internet, much of it is static, outdated and incorrect. Asking questions about golf in Thailand is what’s needed, but finding the right answer is sometimes harder than it seems. Stick with sites you trust and it will get you to where you want to go, no pun intended. Asking your questions to the site’s owner is a really good way to get up-to-date and accurate information you need, not to mention building trust and maybe even a good network of people to look up when it is your turn for golfing in Thailand.
