Most of the golf courses in Thailand have practice facilities but not all of them have a resident professional available
Golfsavers can help you with all aspects of your golf holiday in Thailand, whether it’s just booking a few rounds of golf or you a long golf vacation. Golfer can be a very difficult game and during are golfing careers we have ups and downs it’s much more fun when our game is on song and we feel that we are playing to our potential. We have all experienced times when a game goes wrong and suddenly we stop hooking the ball for no apparent reason and so we head for the local driving range and talk to a pro. Very often they can sort out the problem very quickly and they identify the problem is something to do with our grip or our stance or something else very minor and you start to hit the ball straight again. It’s very frustrating, especially when you are playing a good course to have an off day and start spraying the ball all over the place up at and it is much better to sort out minor problems in your game before going to the course.
Most of the golf courses in Thailand have practice facilities which often include a driving range but not all of them have a resident professional available to give lessons at short notice so if you are interested in tuning up your game then you should plan this in advance.
