The option to book and ‘stay and play’ golf package is commonly found in Europe, North America and other parts of the world. However, up until recently, this option was difficult to come by in Pattaya, Thailand, where golfers often stayed at hotels and travelled to the golf course each day. Fortunately, things have started to change in this part of the world and Pattaya now offers a number of golf resort options, many of which offer great value.
Perhaps the pick of Pattaya golf resorts, is the Golf Lodge at Laem Chabang Country Club. Not only is this one of the best golf courses in Pattaya, it also offers night golf, which is great bonus, especially for those who find it a little too hot to play during the day. Just 30 minutes from Pattaya, the Golf Lodge at Laem Chabang Country Club, is close to the clubhouse and features 40 deluxe rooms, with balconies overlooking the course. There is also a swimming pool and massage service and these combine with the 27-hole, Jack Nicklaus designed golf course, to provide a fantastic option, if you would like to stay at a Pattaya golf resort.
Laem Chabang Country Club
Wangjuntr Golf Resort offers a truly spectacular golf course but the accommodation is struggling to live up to the same standard. There are two, excellent 18-hole championship golf courses and a number of indoor and outdoor activities, which will keep the whole family busy. The golf lodge has a variety of rooms available and the 50-room, low rise hotel is probably the best option. Many local families come and stay at Wangjuntr Golf Resort and it may not be up to the international standard of other golf resorts in the region.
Burapha Golf Club
Burapha Golf and Resort, features one of the most popular golf courses in Pattaya and the West Course has often played host to the Thailand Open. The accommodation comes by way of 56 large, air conditioned rooms, with a balcony or terraces, which overlooks the golf course. The swimming pool and massage service is a nice addition but in general, the resort could do with a bit of TLC, to bring up to an international standard.
If you are looking to book a golf resort in Pattaya, as part of your golfing holiday, we recommend the Golf Lodge at Laem Chabang Country Club. It is the best in Pattaya, with great accommodation and a tremendous golf course.
