About




Comp game a with IGST member Society


  

Managed by The Peninsula Hotels group, Thai Country Club is one of Thailand’s most prestigious golf courses. Nestled on the outskirts of Bangkok, this 18-hole course has impeccable greens, some of the best holes in Thailand, and an award-winning club house. Thai Country Club has hosted numerous international and domestic tournaments featuring the world’s best golfers.

Thai Country Club is a prestigious member's course, has hosted PGA wins by Tiger Woods & Vijay Singh

.One of the best golf courses in Bangkok, Thai sets the standard for service excellence.

 

Designed to USPGA standards by Denis Griffiths, the course opened in December 1996. The design adapts to everyday member use up to very tough challenges for major international and PGA tournaments.

 

The 7,157-yard course was the venue for the 1997 Asian Honda Classic, where Tiger Woods cruised to a comfortable 10-stroke victory after shooting a final round of 68 for a 20 under-par total 268 for the championship. One year later, the second round of the 1998 Johnnie Walker Super Tour was also played in ideal conditions at Thai Country Club, won in style by Vijay Singh, who carded a magnificent score of 66 - two strokes ahead of Ernie Els and Jesper Parnevik. More recently, the Thai Country Club hosted the 2007 and 2008 Volvo Masters.

 

The Thai golf course, as expected, is well-maintained year-round, features a great variety from hole to hole, and an abundance of water hazards and sand bunkers. With its immaculate presentation and conditioning, coupled with a robust and classic parkland layout, Thai Country Club regularly voted as a Top 5 course in Asia.

At the course

 

 

 

 

Another  “rainy season” day in August,  along the journey from Bangkok on the skyway all around was the threat of rain and prominent on arrival but for a few drops it was a rain free day with a mixture of stunning blue sky and heavy cloud cover 

 

 

 

 

Best practice

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

 

Club house Restaurant

My group

 

From left to right 

Chris Plona   /   Phill Smith (me)  /  James Robinson   /  Harry Hansen 

 



I’ve played 1 game with Chris a few days earlier otherwise we are mostly newbies 


IGST membership experience 6 games / 4 games / 2 games / 3 games 


We were the last to tee off which gave us a little more time to prepare and watch the other groups launch



The following photos are from our journey around the course, I snap 360 photos for a virtual tour and extract standard / Pano photos to use here .. ie., all the photos can be seen (in better quality) in the virtual tour section (they also have a location Icon to see the position on the course)





3rd hole par 3 







3rd hole green





1 of the 4 or 5 kiosks around the course  






4th hole par 5  . need to get over water to start a long winding fairway with more water before the green






4th hole par 5 - fairway a long journey around water










4th hole par 5 - a long journey around water






6th hole - par 3 






Half way house on the West side of the clubhouse at the 1st tee  









11th par 3 over water … this is a big ask 






14th par 5 caught in a trap .. I can't look back 





17th hole - par 5  - the Green 







Can you guess which green this is   (photo extracted from virtual tour)





Back of the 18th .. the clubhouse has a stunning view from the front of the green






Balcony view onto the course 







To gain a better insight to the hazards, try the satellite view options in the virtual tour page (link in editorial) where you can zoom in and measure the course on the desktop (it's also possible with mobile phone but a little tricky)


Example google maps: Satellite mode

View 360 images in position and measure distances

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  

 

 

Quite a few stayed for the presentation 

(during covid this was discouraged and members needed to leave immediately after the game).

Social Media What we did today 

multitasking


  • Play - a - round

  • Google mapping - “Step inside” (360 photos to virtual walk clubhouse and part of the course

  • Satellite view link of course
  • Virtual tour platform

  • Video of the outing with IGST

  • Directory page of the golf course
  • Vlog the IGST outing 



Scroll down to see each





Play-a-round 


Apart from golfing on the day, I attempt multitasking challenges (which 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 




Today .. the golfing



My caddy today Khun Maew, lovely lady and now friends on “line” (a popular thai social media platform)

Tip payment to caddy is between 300 to 500 baht is the benchmark 



Threatening with rain at the start and a few drops fell which I kindly removed from the lense 

A few holes later a few 360 shots have a few blur sports which means there was a drop or 2 of rain on the lense


The weather, mostly fine, a few holes with vivid blue sky when the sun go through, otherwise most of the day was cloud cover which is ideal for golf 




About the course 

Pretty well STUNNING everywhere .. very meticulous in all aspects. The obvious anxiety of so much water is kindly dismissed with the appreciation of the beauty, sweeping fairways, accurate and well planned contoured water boundaries.  


























Howz the awesome Japanese spa in the men's locker room

Extract from 360 image in the virtual tour 





After the game I enjoyed the food in the clubhouse

Phad Sii-ew Gai   (Pan fried noodles with chicken)







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


Today 

55 x 360 photos taken on the day (already captured the clubhouse on previous visit)


It's become abundantly apparent I can not handle any more than about 4 holes, without an impost on other players let alone the lengthy process of a jig saw puzzle (trying to work out the position of the photos)  some platforms only have tunnel vision view during the creation which is just a nightmare when all around is green .. lol

Imperative to know tips and tricks 


Map (desktop and mobile) has an icon / symbol to “change layers”,  please change them to 

  1. Satellite: ->  can now rotate screen desktop or mobile

  1. Street view - >  see blue lines / dots of 360 images to access (if multiple, you can jump / fly)




Bonus for golfers

I use an excellent golf app that has a “flyover” of each hole, welcome to ask me more as I’ve been using it for years


GolfPad - amazing app 

  • Does all the usual stuff like record score, shots, measure distance 



It also has 

  • flyover each hole 

  • History of games and players score

  • Dashboard of score with map of hole 







  • Also a live group leader board score to share with players or friends


  • Tag set (cheapest around) to record all shots club and distance
