About








IGST 

International Golf Society Thailand

 

Comp game at The Vintage Golf Club

a medium price range course, flat, above average water hazards,

walk or kart

 

 

Reviewed by BC; on 30 Apr 2022

Very mature and flat tree-lined course, with a good mix of short & longer holes. Nothing fancy, just a regular design. The fairways were undergoing some maintenance, but they were playable, greens were very nice. Caddies were friendly with good course knowledge and spoke some English. The English-style clubhouse is big, very nice, and comfortable, with a good restaurant & locker room.

 

Venue to several Thai PGA and Thai LPGA events, the 18 holes golf course designed by a renowned US golf architect Arthur Hills. With pristine greens and rolling fairway, the course retain many of the natural surroundings.

At the course

 

 

 

Another July “rainy season” day … 

it’s raining in Bangkok but at the course it's sunny however it can change any time 


Seasons of Weather Thailand = 3  Winter / Summer / Raining 


 

Best practice

ideal to arrive early and take in the beautiful clubhouse and Restaurant

avoid traffic congestion and rush


 




 

Start

 



 

36 players today 

 

One person in the group is required to sign on to record live score for the group

Outcome 

 

 

For the group generally 

 

Weather was in the main perfect all  day

 

Course in excellent condition 

 

Speed of play was good 

 

Food, drinks and clubhouse hospitality was high quality

Play-a-round 


Apart from golfing on the day, I attempt multitasking challenges (often means not a good golf score)  

No problem / “Mai Mee Pbun Haa”



Photos / videos: 

very dependant on weather conditions and the vibe of the player group

If the weather is threatening rain / high humidity then its poor depth of field (low quality)

If the player group is not known or strictly golf then we avoid photo contact 



Golf


Contrasting day of weather conditions .. but that's the tropical climate this time of the year 


We started on the 10th with blue sky 




 

10th Fairway

 

 



10th green





A few holes later we were facing some serious dark clouds but …. NO RAIN 


The course is very consistent throughout in terms of general condition and average challenges of some narrow tee box, fairway bunkers and water hazards protecting greens








360 pics: Google mapping - Step Inside


Images are uploaded to google maps to … same same Street View but when the images go beyond the road it's called  “step Inside” into places, to allow anyone on the net to engage Virtual tour / Step Inside
