Thailand has become a top destination for golfers due to its impressive collection of quality golf courses. While many travelers head to the Bangkok area, the Khon Kaen region in the North East of the country offers a hidden gem. With four established 18-hole courses and several 9-hole options, the area has plenty to offer golf tourists. While the region is not as glamorous as other areas in Thailand, there are still good hotels and resorts available for traveling golfers. The best time to visit is during the dry months of January, February, November, and December, and it’s best to avoid April, which is the hottest month.
Singha Park Khon Kaen Golf Club is a remarkable course with challenging holes and an abundance of water. Dancoon Golf Club, the first golf tourist-friendly course in the Issan region, offers wide fairways and well-positioned bunkers. Ubolratana Dam Golf Course offers a good mix of hole designs and challenges. Although the region is still a work in progress, with its beautiful countryside, it’s bound to yield many more great golf courses in the future.
