Sand Creek Golf Course

Sand Creek Golf Course

Hole 5 ,lovely little par 3.

Despite being a relatively short one this is not the course for everyone as you have be straight and accurate otherwise you are hitting yet another tree or another ball disappears in to the water. Short yes, but challenging and you actually have to manage the course.Can’t be smashing a driver up the all the fairways or you find more water.

1st hole ,par 4. Water left,right and in front-twice!

Generally those that say they don’t like the course simply can’t play it.The course has improved over the years thanks to the TLC of the ground staff and the caddies. Tee boxes, fairways and greens were in excellent condition when we played very recently. Despite the  heavy rains the course has drained exceptionally well.

Hole 7,par 4, dogleg left. Bogie on this hole is a good score!

The caddies continue to run the course. They won’t win any beauty contests but very good at their jobs,and deserve every baht they get, don’t be the one with long pockets and short arms! 

 

Still see players pulling their own golf trolleys, slowing play down while they look for the 2 or 3 balls they have played,please don’t be one of them,support the course and the caddies. Will only cost you 30 baht more to have a knowledgeable caddy pull the trolley and see the balls you have not seen go in to the trees.

Cost for 18 holes including caddy fee: 230 baht! 

The Lighter Side of Golf

1. These greens are so fast I have to hold my putter over the ball and hit it with the shadow.

~ Sam Snead

2. I was three over today: One over a house, one over a patio and one over a swimming pool.

~ George Brett

3. Actually, the only time I ever took out a one-iron was to kill a tarantula.And I took a 7 to do that.

~ Jim Murray

4. The only sure rule in golf is – he who has the fastest cart never has to play the bad lie.

~ Mickey Mantle

5. Sex and golf are the two things you can enjoy even if you’re not good at ‘em.

~ Kevin Costner

6. I don’t fear death, but I sure don’t like those three-footers for par.

~ Chi Chi Rodriguez

7. After all these years, it’s still embarrassing for me to play on the American golf tour. Like the time I asked my caddie for a sand wedge and he came back ten minutes later with a ham on rye.

~ Chi Chi Rodriguez

8. The ball retriever is not long enough to get my putter out of the tree.

~ Brian Weis

9. Swing hard in case you hit it.

~ Dan Marino

10. My favorite shots are the practice swing and the conceded putt. The rest can never be mastered.

~ Lord Robertson

11. Give me golf clubs, fresh air and a beautiful partner, and you can keep the clubs and the fresh air.

~ Jack Benny

12. There is no similarity between golf and putting; they are two different games, one played in the air, and the other on the ground.

~ Ben Hogan

13. Professional golf is the only sport where, if you win 20% of the time, you’re the best.

~ Jack Nicklaus

14. The uglier a man’s legs are, the better he plays golf. It’s almost a law.

~H. G. Wells

15. I never pray on a golf course. Actually, the Lord answers my prayers everywhere except on the course.

~ Billy Graham

16. If you watch a game, it’s fun. If you play at it, it’s recreation. If you work at it, it’s golf.

~ Bob Hope

17. While playing golf today, I hit two good balls. I stepped on a rake.

~ Henny Youngman

18. If you think it’s hard to meet new people, try picking up the wrong golf ball.

~ Jack Lemmon

19. You can make a lot of money in this game. Just ask my ex-wives.Both of them are so rich that neither of their husbands work.

~ Lee Trevino

20. I’m not saying my golf game went bad, but if I grew tomatoes, they’d come up sliced.

~ Lee Trevino

Gold Canyon

Gold Canyon

So,we did not go to Alpine because the prices for my friend were ridiculous (6150THB).We went to Gold Canyon where the weather was perfect, greens and fairways were great and to cap it all turned out it was sports day and we paid 800THB per person inclusive green fee, caddy fee and cart! And if we had the energy to actually walk (not recommended,undulating,hot and sticky) it was 300THB!


Highly recommended.
