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.

~ 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

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. 

Alpine -Really?

Guest coming in from overseas today thought Alpine would be a good course for him to play on and with the 2017 ChiangMai Golf Festival in full swing called the to make a booking for Thursday.

The good news, 1550 THB for caddy fee,green fee and golf cart for me being a Thai resident. The bad news, Alpine are not participating in the 2017 Chiang Mai Golf Festival so subsequently unlike other courses have different rate for non residents of :

6150 THB.



Guess where we will not be playing? You got it, anywhere but Alpine. Many good deals at the other courses in our area as you can see here:


Alpine also have a problem with their  phone number. Can’t be helping their business either.

ChiangMai Golf Festival 2017

There is no Chiangmai Golf Festival 2017 as there was in the past few years.

Some courses will still be holding competitions but no details yet.

Most courses will be offering some special deals which we will add as soon as confirmed.
