Thailand remains value golf destination

The average round of golf was 29% cheaper in Thailand than in other leading golf destinations in Asia, according to a recent survey.

The survey across six countries conducted by Asian golf vacation specialists Golfasian compared the midweek high-season visitor rates and found Thailand has some of the most competitive golf rates for visitors across Asia and the Middle East.

The most expensive golf course was US$271 (8,200 baht) at the Emirates Club’s Majlis course, home to the Dubai Desert Classic. The lowest rate was $111 (3,400 baht) at Bangkok’s Muang Kaew Golf Club.

Mark Siegel, the founder of Golfasian, said the survey showed there was a large difference in golf course prices in Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and the UAE. For example, a round of golf at Black Mountain Golf Club in Hua Hin, which recently hosted both the Asian Tour Masters and the Royal Trophy, was only $130. But another Asian Tour venue, Sentosa Golf Club in Singapore, charged $238 per round. The cost of lodging, transportation and food and beverages are also lower in Thailand.

The Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort starts from $130, whereas starting rates at the Hilton Kuala Lumpur are $177. The Marriott Hua Hin Resort and Spa charges $157 while the Singapore Marriott has their best rate at $335.
