Many wanting a golf holiday in Thailand are now looking beyond the traditional destinations in search of a bit of culture to go with their golf, and the city of Chiang Rai in the north, which boasts two excellent golf courses, is growing in popularity. Benefitting from cooler temperatures, Chiang Rai is gradually establishing itself as a more upmarket tourist destination with stunning riverside hotels and guest houses, and is an excellent base from which to explore the region. Go trekking in search of hill tribes, ride an elephant, or simply browse the numerous fascinating museums and temples for which the region is rightly famous.
While Chiang Rai does offer 'frisbee golf', we'd suggest that you stick to the real thing. Together, the scenic Waterford Valley Golf & Country Club and the Robert Trendt-Jones- designed Santiburi Country Club offer a veritable feast for the golf connoisseur. The latter in particular has a deserved reputation as one of the best courses in the country, and the huge mature trees, crystal clear lakes and mountainous backdrop give it a majestic feel. A must-play on your Thailand golf holiday.
Note: The cool season, the best time to play golf, lasts a little longer in the north, from October until the end of February, with average temperatures around 21°C. The rainy season lasts from June to September, but that shouldn't put too much of a dampener on a Chiang Rai golf holiday as most of the rain falls in the afternoon or overnight, making Northern Thailand a perfect year-round destination for golfers.
