Alpine Golf and Sports Club

When people envision the best golf courses in Thailand, they probably aren’t imagining Bangkok as a top contender. Being one of the biggest and most visited cities in the world, where would one possibly put a large golf course in this urban playground? Alpine Golf and Sports Club somehow found a way, and it is not only one of the best golf courses in the city but also in all of Thailand. Its challenging course has many slopes and bodies of water throughout, and it has hosted many international golf tournaments. After a challenging game on the course, guests are welcome to utilize one of the many relaxing amenities Alpine Golf and Sports Club has available, including a jacuzzi, sauna and refreshment kiosk.

Red Mountain

Visitors of Phuket don’t normally add golfing to their itineraries of things to see and do. The island has an array of top attractions, from temples and beaches to an insane nightlife. That being said, those golfers making their way to the south of Thailand need to check out Red Mountain. The golf course works nicely with an otherwise bumpy terrain, as it moves and bends with a number elevation changes, providing golfers with a challenging and exciting course. The Tinidee Golf Resort sits just adjacent to this breathtaking course as well.

There are an abundance of activities to choose from in and around Chiang Mai, so when the family does feel the need to vacate the resort for a few hours, there are endless activities to choose from.
