Alpine Golf Resort



ADDRESS: P.O. Box 16 San Kamphaeng – Banthi Rd., Chiang Mai, Thaiand 50130


Course Layout

With the Autumn breeze and cool air of the golf course amidst the valleys in Chiang Mai Province, Northern Thailand, where the weather is good and cool, especially cool and misty in the early morning of winter from October to February. It is a charm of Chiang Mai that nature lovers can not miss at the height of 1,500 meters above sea level. It makes Alpine Golf Resort – Chiang Mai golf course surrounded by mountains on an area of over 700 rai, full of natures beauty, among the valleys and has creates a golf course where one there were rice fields with  a challenging and unique lay out as any golf course in Thailand. 

         Alpine Golf Resort – Chiang Mai would like to invite golfers to experience a challenge at the 27-hole international championship golf course, divided into 3 courses: Course A-3,830 yards, Course B-3,712 yards and Course C- 3,702 yards, designed by Mr. Ron M Garl, the world famous designer winning “The Best Renovate Award 2007” and the top designer of golf courses in Thailand, Mr. Pirapon Nanatra, to guarantees challenging and fun, with the difficult and easy holes being mixed perfectly. So, golfers enjoy playing more under the quality of the course maintained to meet international standards, with at least 10 stintmeters to measure green speed and full facilities.

Alpine is living a little on past glories from when they were hosting top tournaments but that was some 5 years ago and still charging as if was still doing so.

Thai Residents: 3,300 baht (Does include green fee ,caddy fee, and cart) Caddy tip on top of that of course.

If you friend from overseas would like to join you then it’s a cool 6,300 baht! (Plus tip!)

A nice course but way overpriced against other equally good courses in Chiangmai province.

$5 million for John Rahm!

More crazy money but I guess these top golfing stars warrant a fair share of the pot that is generated from such events.

And it needs to be remembered that only a few are in the huge money bracket, many of the other tour professionals eek out a living travelling economy and sharing hotel rooms with their peers.

High Season-A Little Late


High Season-A Little LateHangDong

Usually the Koreans and Japanese arrive late December to early January to play golf in the warmer climate of ChiangMai and often frequent the cheaper courses where they often play in groups of 6,something they could never do,or even think of doing in their home countries.

Anyway,this year just when it looked like there was going to be little or no “high season” golf they arrived in early February and off they go in their large groups playing 5-6 hours for 18 holes on a short course! It appears though that the invasion is relatively short lived as it is anticipated that by the end of February in to early March the mass exodus will occur and normality will return.

Can”t blame them, cheaper by far than their home countries ,weather much better and no silly rules on many of the golf courses. Can also be fun to join up with the smaller groups to find that golf is very much an international sport and language.

Stardome Golf Club

Quite like Stardome Golf Club, quite a challenge and plenty of water for even slightly wayward shots.

Played this week all was fine until you get to the greens. I think there was more sand on the greens than in the bunkers, almost impossible to putt, not that good at the best of times, but didn’t need that, ridiculous.

Now, one of our pet hates is dual pricing, in many cases it is hidden and most are not aware. Not Stardome Golf Club:


Clearly states a different and higher price for “Foreigners” , not much, but higher. As I said, quite like the course but will not be going back if this practice continues, I am sure they won’t care but it’s my principles and I simply don’t like it.

If you do bite the bullet and decide to go these young ladies may add to your “golfing” pleasure. The famous Stardome refreshers:


Need refreshing?


Will still continue to use the driving rang, a superb facility and the same price for all.

Our driving range is the biggest driving range in the northern part of Thailand. It is also fully equipped with the most modern facilities for golf driving with the longest driving range. There are total of 96 drive lanes, with a length of 300 yards, with a real golf course simulator. There are high quality automatic golf balls feeders, hydrid air circulation system, Golf Pro to assist golfers on basic knowledge in golfing, and complete golf sets to serve our customers.

Our hours of operation are from 07.00 am. – 22.00 am. In the driving range building, we offer free wireless zone, 40 inch LCD Television on which our customers can enjoy sports live broadcasted. For the safety of customers’ belongings, we have lockers available.”

Gymkhana- It’s OK to have 6 players in a group!

If you would think there would be anywhere in Chiangmai or even Thailand you would think that Gymkhana would use their brains and realise that that five or six players in a group is nuts and especially on a short 9 hole course. Nothing worse than slow play and this stupidity encourages it.

This is from the horses mouth:

“4. The Committee hereby informs the all the members that the rule of 6 Members per Group playing style is still effective as announced by the Club. Should there be any alteration, the Committee will notify the members as soon as possible.”

As it specifies “members”,mainly those who pull their own carts I guess (no tip for the caddies) and make it even slower.One of the main reasons myself and many others no longer play there.

I don’t think there are any other countries in the world where you can play 6 persons in a group even on full length 18 holes golf courses,correct me if I am wrong.

It would appear that the guy who was trying to bring the club in to the present day and do away with their archaic ideas has been forced out?
