Thailand is the Best Golfing Destination in Asia, according to Asia Golf Monthly Awards (April 2001).

Golf is one of the most popular sports in Thailand. It arrived here a century ago and was quickly taken up by the elite and fashionable. Among the first sponsors of the game were the Armed Forces and government institutions, which built and continue to own some of the finest courses in the country.

Below are highlights of one of the Golf Tour Packages offered.
