Golf in Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai Golf
Chiang Mai and the surrounding region of Northern Thailand have to be considered a prime golfing destination that is still a hidden gem of Southeasian golf.

Northern Thailand has many advantages over the beach resorts and island of Thailand due to a greater variety, a more dramatic mountainous landscape, a cooler and more stable climate, much lower costs and a better infrastructure.

There are some spectacular courses in the region and new ones are being build all the time to serve and ever greater number of mai ly Asian golfing tourists from countries such as Korea, Japan and increasingly China, where golf can be too crowded or unaffordable for the middle-class.

Thailand still has a distinct tourist season and most visitors arrive between November and February, with a peak around New Year. Golf during this period is splendid, with glorious sunshine on most days, pleasantly cool weather and lush greenery from the past rainy season. It is also by far the busiest time. Tee-time reservation is recommended on most golf courses in Chiang Mai and vicinity. It can be advisable to contact a specialized agent to get discount green fees and maybe some transportation thrown in.

Outside of the high season the course are quiet. Especially the rainy season can be an excellent time to visit Northern Thailand for golf, as the lush greenery is in full bloom, the weather is mostly pleasant with overcast skies and occasional showers that hardly ever disrupt a round for longer periods, clean fresh air washed by the rain is much better than in the sometimes smoky dry season. Prices are much lower, be it for accommodation or other services.

Many golf courses have promotions during the low season, with rates sometimes dropping below 1000 Baht even for championship courses.

Chiang Mai has so much to offer and golf is one of the many highlights. Affordable, friendly and varied rounds of golf in a mountainous landscapes with lakes, waterfalls and golden temples will have you ask: Who needs a beach?
