Golfing in Samui
There’s a course for everyone!
Samui has bloomed into a paradise hub for concrete-jungle and 9-5 escapists. There are layers of resorts, activities, and food suiting all financial classes, thrill-seekers, and palettes. Golfing in Samui is no different. You can golf with a jungle backdrop and ocean view at the 18-hole Santiburi Country Club in Mae Nam, strap on your cleats and kick a soccer ball at Samui’s Football Golf Course, or march around throwing a disc at Laem Sor Disc Golf and Acoustic Bar.
After setting sail along the sea of ever-changing blues, why not set foot on a course of smooth greens? Adhere to the suggestions below on where to play with clubs, cleats, and discs!
Aim for a “birdie” at traditional golf courses
Santiburi Country Club is above par with its formidable view of lush tropical landscapes and the aquamarine sea. It’s the smooth terrain though, that pushes you towards below-par scores. The grass is seasoned for play all year long, which has resulted in highly-regarded reviews from golfers all over the globe. Since 2005, Santiburi Country Club has hosted yearly events – the Asian Cup from 2005 – 2008 and the Queens Cup from 2008 – 2016 – thus establishing themselves as a recommended course for holiday goers. After completing the 18 holes, you can set down your golf bag and please your appetite with a cold beverage and some tasty delights at the restaurant.
If you’d prefer to spend less time in the thick tropical air but desire a challenging terrain, you can also take your clubs to the Royal Samui Golf and Country Club, which hosts a 9-hole course.
Throw an “eagle” in disc golf
Disc golf is a family-friendly activity, suitable for ages 12 and up (the little ones may have a difficult time throwing the frisbee far distances). However, what could be better than spending an afternoon meandering amongst palm trees, while playing a lighthearted game of frisbee golf with your loved ones? Walk through the splendours of nature in the hidden, tropic-infused Laem Sor Beach Disc Golf and Acoustic Bar (near to Lamai) or try out the fresh green course at Samui Disc Golf in Mae Nam. Both places are highly rated and recommended by past visitors!
Kick an “albatross” in football golf
Looking to kick up the antics on your vacation? Replace the oh-so-relaxing beach lounging and yacht cruising with a day of launching a ball into hole-sized goals. Samui’s Football Golf 18-hole course is the first of its kind in Asia, making it a definite must-do for football-loving families, couples, and individuals. Drive seven minutes from Chaweng Beach and you’ll find yourself geared up and kicking a ball in no time for an affordable price: 750 THB for adults and 350 THB for children.
