Next week in Dubai more millions to be won. Add to this sponsorship money on top of that and it’s no wonder the likes of Tommy Fleetwood on his win saying it’s not about the money!

Hangdong Headstones?


Looked like the course had placed markers for the final resting place for frustrated golfers!

Seemed to be only room for one at each hole so chances are they were there for some other reason.

Yep, turned out they are hole layouts etc which will be quite useful especially for newbies to the course.

However they have put them in the most peculiar places. Logic would have that the would be placed to the right of the tee box neared to the back  (White) tee off.

But no, that is not the case. Many of them are actually forward of the tee boxes and some have already been hit by players driving off, also a huge potential hazard from balls richocheting from them back towards the players and caddies.

Good idea to have the hole layout on show, bad idea to put them where they have!

Don”t Want A Caddy?

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
Gymkhana Golf Course & Sports Club

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!

 

Sand Creek Golf Course

Sand Creek Golf Course

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.

Chiang Mai Low Season Prices

Chiang Mai Low Season Prices

No ChiangMai golf Festival this year but most courses are offering their own specials at least for the next two months most notable among them is Alpine Golf Course who are offering the low rate of THB 1550 ,Caddy Fee, Green Fee and Golf Cart to Thai residents. By far the cheapest this course has been for many years. But if you have non resident guests then choose another course as the price is THB 6150!

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.
