Golf In Pattaya – Golf Courses A-Z

Pattaya golfGolf has probably become the most popular waste of time for a large number of expats, foreign tourists and Thais alike, and has emerged as a typical specialty of the Eastern seaboard. If you’re a golf enthusiast and on vacation in Pattaya, a golf tour should definitely be on your must-do list.
Pattaya and other nearby provinces along the East Coast, feature more than 20 of Thailand’s finest golf courses, all in tropically evergreen landscapes. Most golf courses are situated within a 60-minute driving distance from Pattaya’s city centre and the most popular hotels and resorts.
Many of the golf courses in the region have been designed by some of the world’s most famous names in golf course design, such as Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Nick Faldo, or other world-class golf course architects.

Whereas in many Western countries golf is still deemed an elitist sport for exclusively the rich, and club membership fees are too costly to make it affordable for the average working man, golf in Pattaya, though perhaps not as cheap as a decade ago, is still extremely well-priced and affordable for any Western visitor.
Green fees from less than 500 Baht and usually not exceeding 3,000 Baht also explain the ever-growing popularity golf enjoys in Thailand’s upper middle class.

Due to the constantly warm tropical climate with a never-ending golf season throughout the year, and an influx of thousands of golf-crazy expatriates, golf has become the most popular leisure activity here at the Eastern seaboard. If you don’t have your own vehicle or don’t want to waste your money on a taxi to get to the golf course, there are many specialized tour agencies that offer regular golf tours, as well as a handful of bars and pubs in Pattaya that double as golf club houses and organize regular tours for their patrons.
For the less experienced players, or tourists who just feel like fine-tuning their swing, there are also several driving ranges right within Pattaya’s city limits.
