Chiang Mai and its surrounding areas has much to offer, especially for golf enthusiasts who want to play in some truly amazing courses. And if world class courses with spectacular scenery weren’t enough, there are also great pro-shops, fabulous restaurants and gorgeous club houses.
This April, Mae Jo Golf Club offers heavily discount green fees at only 1,650 Baht. The golf club is located behind Mae Jo University, the oldest agricultural college in Chiang Mai. This golf is only a 20 minute drive from Chiang Mai and is very popular with golfers looking for a high quality fun course that is not too far from their Chiang Mai hotel.
Scenic views of the mountain surround the golf course. With thousands of fruit trees and orchids alongside its fairways, the golf course looks as good as it plays. The kiosk at the 14th hole has a stunning view as does the 15th tee. Seni Thirawat, Mae Jo’s course designer, is a popular local Thai golf course architect. The Mae Jo Golf Course is well suited for golfers of all abilities. Narrow fairways with Zoysia grass are perfect for low handicap players. Whilr several water hazards and doglegs, as well as long par 5’s, create a demanding game. The Korean Velvet greens are mostly wide but often with a slope.
The club house in modern Lanna style offers a restaurant, lodge and friendly service. Extensive practice facilities including driving range, putting and chipping green, and bunkers allow golfers to hit a few balls before their round.
This month’s promotion at Mae Jo Golf Club is definitely great value for all golf lovers: enjoy green fees at 1.650 THB during week days and 2,000 THB in the week ends (caddie 300 THB and golf car 750 THB).
