|Golf in the city|
It is a sport where players pit their skills against the topography of the land
Thailand is not just about beaches and temples. It is also an ideal destination for avid golfers. Several golf courses that have world class facilities, including accommodation, are located in or near Bangkok.
Anyone who is used to adrenaline surging spectator sports like football, basketball or even Thai boxing will not easily understand the extraordinary feeling that a perfect shot brings. But for a golfer, the magical flight of the ball as it defies gravity, wind and all things physical in search of a tiny goal is a powerful experience.
As one golfer said "While most of man's athletic competitions imitate war, golf imitates life, with the player pitting his own skills against the topography of the land. If bad breaks conspire against you, you will have an opportunity to show whether you have what it takes to overcome them".
Learning golf is easy and fun, but mastering it is difficult. Try to engage the services of a pro to improve your swing, driving or putting skills, especially if you're just a weekend player.
Most golf courses and driving ranges rent out equipment and have restaurants, bars and function rooms. Some offer massage services. All of them are staffed by professionals.
Don't forget to tip the caddies. Many of them know the course by heart and have certainly seen all kinds of shots.
