Thailand Golf – What Expats and International Visitors Really Think

With all the recent discussions on whether Thai caddies should be compulsory, well over 2/3rds of golfers polled in Thaivisa’s Golf in Thailand Survey just published, actually agreed that Caddies do enhance their round of golf.

Golf had to take a step back at the start of the global pandemic, but now people are realizing that being out in the fresh air is not only a lot safer than staying at home, but also provides great exercise while still adhering to social distancing.

Over the past few weeks, thaivisa.com’s Golf in Thailand forum, have been conducting their own major survey, which has provided them with a current snapshot of golf across the country. The survey is published today on line.

Over 472 golfers who regularly play their golf in Thailand, took part in this independent survey, which was held over three weeks September 2020.

The good news for local courses, was that 37% agreed that they would still take up club membership, which confirms loyalty to their golf clubs.

54% confirmed that the regularly tipped their caddie between 300-500 Thai Baht, roughly between US$10-15 a round.

Before the pandemic over 48% polled said they played golf at least six times a month, and another 28% played at least three times.

A Countrywide Concern!

Perhaps of more concern to Thailand’s golf industry however, was that 67% polled had noticed that golf clubs were charging different rates for locals and foreigners. And a further 52% agreed that golf in Thailand was more expensive than elsewhere.

Golf in Thailand has received over 85,000 views since its launch in mid-July. It provides online information, local and international news, promotions and offers, and has over 140 of the top courses listed with comments and reviews from golfers here and overseas.

Thaivisa Golf’s Mike Bridge said: ‘Thailand is the most popular golfing destination in Asia, so we wanted to create an online source to help provide expat golfers resident here in Thailand up to date information on prices, course conditions and reviews.

“Naturally once the country re opens its borders, Golf in Thailand will also become the No1 source for golf vacationers wanting to play golf in the land of the smiles.”
