Golf in Thailand

Just got back from a 3 week holiday in Thailand. Had a ball seeing the sights, shopping & spending the day at the swim up pool bar drinking Chang’s 🙂 In amongst all of this we found time for a round of golf. I would have liked to play more courses but at 200 bucks a pop each we left it one. The course we played was Loch Palm just out side of Phuket. You can check out their website here. A beautiful course with a heap of water holes on the front 9. The back 9 was closer to the mountain but still challenging. For your $200 you get a set of Taylor Made hire clubs, separate buggies & a caddie. My caddie didn’t like me to much, it might have had something to do with the red shirt I was wearing 🙁 Were Neils caddie would drive him down the fairway & let him drop his ball where he crossed into the water, my caddie made me play from the drop zone, a good 100-150 metres behind Neil 😡 Neil’s caddie also helped him out on the greens, telling him where to putt the ball, mine just stood off to the side . 

Raelene played her first 18 holes & we might have a new convert ;) All up it was a gorgeous course, but boy was it hot. We tee’d off at 8 in the morning & it was all ready sweltering. Even in carts we were dripping in sweat. A couple of ice cold towels at the drink stops that are set up at a lot of the tee’s came in handy. 

Neil took some great photo’s, except for one see if you can pick which one ;) You can check them out here

    It was fantastic Min. I loved everything about Thailand, if you get the chance you should go. Now that I’m back I would love to arrange another round of golf soon. As soon as I know something I’ll post it on the web 🙂
