Don”t Want A Caddy?

Thursday, August 30th, 2018

For some reason some people do not want to take a caddy when they play here not something I would opt for personally but we all have our own choice.

Not many options here in Chiang Mai , in fact only two 9 hole courses where you can do it one of which you have to be a member.

Gymkhana Golf Course & Sports Club

This golf course is an history lesson in itself – founded in 1898, Gymkhana Golf Course is the oldest golf course and sports club in Thailand.

The location is simply amazing – in the centre of the city of Chiang Mai, at 349 Chiang Mai – Lamphun Road.

The Club House has an excellent restaurant, billiard room, library, pro shop, and a fitness centre.

Not only golf fans will be entertained here, the Gymkhana Sports Club also features tennis courts, 2 squash courts and a cricket ground.

This one you have to be a member to pull your own trolley and find your own balls!

Beginners will love this golf course, as it’s perfect for them. The golf course had better days, as the Club House and swimming pool are sadly closed (and have been so for a long time), but the course is in a decent shape, and the green fee is more than reasonable.

The course is now run by the caddies and their husbands, which makes it friendlier than most other courses. It’s fairly short, but it does have some water hazards that could keep you occupied.

You can arrive here by taking the Sankampaeng road towards Sankampaeng village. Just when you see the city lights, turn left, and a little further on the winding road you’ll see the golf course on the right side.

Course general information

Designer Unknown
Established 1992
Address 85 Moo 6 T. Huaysai A. Sankhampaeng Chiang Mai

 

This course is run by the caddies and ground staff and is one of the cheapest around at only 230 baht for 18 holes, including caddy fee.

They will let you take your own trolley, or carry your own clubs. Personally I think they should charge the same fees whether or not you want a caddy but they don’t.
