Current Golf situation

Recommended Posts

I am going to be in Pattaya arriving the 19th - 24th and am planning on playing golf every day. This is the first trip in a while without folks to play with so wanted to see what societies are currently running and how much pressure is on the golf courses. I know normally during this time of the year it is impossible for a single to get on, but I assume the courses are not busy and if needed I could go out and play by myself. It has been years since I have played with any of the societies, so I don't know what is avialable. Thanks for any information.

The Links society play on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Yesterday they had 22 golfers. I've seen the numbers from about 12 or so all the way up to 40. I believe there are a few other groups operating around town as well. I haven't ventured with any of them yet. The Pattaya Country Club didn't seem overly busy yesterday. But, I also didn't pay to much attention. I was busy trying to get my caddy back to Pattaya. 🤗🤗

Links, Nadia, Travellers Rest, Bunker Boys and Witherspoons are all available.

Golf is great. Numbers are well down especially being as though the Koreans with awful etiquette are not here. Good deals for a round with a cart. Sportsday deals available if you look around, e.g. Burapha 1,100 with cart.

Travellers Rest can be hard work, especially when they are having a competition and you are playing with them.

 

It was incredibly fractious last time I was out with them. Not relaxing at all

Bunker Boys can be like that too from what I hear. Witherspoons is a better game for you then. No competition.

I’ve seen this pic before but can’t catch the name of the course. Which one?  And what is the caddy fee for carrying your balls around for 18 holes?  LOL

Best golf days I’ve had are with blokes just met in bars. Especially good if one of them has a Hillux and can take you all

Does anyone have current information on the golf groups? It's been 4 months since this was updated? I've seen some signs about some of the places, but not sure what group would be best for me.

Here is my deal:

Only looking to play a few times a month so don't want a group that focuses on year long contests (I think Travelers does this?)

I don't mind hopping in a little competition for the day but assume I will have to play a few rounds with the group before they can assign me a handicap.

Never had an official handicap, but I shoot anywhere from high 70s on a good day to high 80s on a bad day. Usually play around 6500 yards (6000 meters) tee box.

On a side note, are the holes in Thailand measured in yards or meters, or both? Might have to work up a chart to know the right club if everything is in meters.

The golf courses are in yards so you won't have a problem. Fuck knows why when the rest of the country uses the metric system.

Any of the groups are happy to have you turn up on play on the day so you don't have to play in their year long contests which are for Expats anyway 

As for your daily competitions. These are optional. You don't have to play in the Golf Society comp it's up to you 

 

Question you really need to ask yourself is are you using them to go play golf or are you using them to meet new friends.

 

Because if it is to meet new friends you obviously want to stick to the one bar. If you want to just play golf then be a "slut" and play at any bar you want according to the courses they are playing on any given day

Check out the Pattaya Sports Club website as it lists some golf bars and some schedules and prices.

 

Witherspoon's, Travellers Rest, Links are 3 of the biggest going and all have websites with their schedules and costs and details etc 

 

There are plenty of smaller groups about to that you can play with 

ThaigerLine have a website and will book golf days out for you and drive you to n from the course or you can tag along with them 

Other option which is my preferred choice is to hire a car and drive yourself. You be able to pick up a hire car for 1000 baht for a day and you can drive yourself so you can play where you want at what time you want and you can leave when you want

As they all say the golf is good out here and all the societies get preferential rates and arrange transportation to golf courses so don’t worry most have 20-40 playing a day and they normally group you up with friends or people of a similar handicap.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
