Game round up

weather today looks a little less pleasant BUT remember 

  • this time of the year is rainy season 
  • if its raining where you are its not likely raining there 
  • rule of thumb 80% of rain forecast on the course does not happen for IGST due to members  "Tam Boon" (giving merit)
  • courses have shelter around the course and its always ok to rest with food and eats and great fellowship

Lets say hello to Charles Marques founder of IGST and his lovely wife Khun Oh
good morning and what course are we at today ....

Royal Bang Pa In due north from Bangkok. Brand new clubhouse as you can see, it's top quality course good greens, good bunkers. Good service, normally very popular with Koreans and Japanese, which means that it's very expensive. luckily, or unluckily for the course but luckily for us, there are a lot less tourists around at the moment especially from Japan and Korea playing golf. So we are playing for a ridiculously cheap price which hopefully they'll try to maintain for us when things go back to normal.

Apart from golfing on the day, I multitask attempting the 

following tasks (often means not a good golf score)  

No problem / “Mai Mee Pbun Haa”

Today loved the course 

BUT as vlogger heavy cloud & high humidity is not ideal for pics and vids (too much noise (moisture affecting depth of field)) never mind “Mai Ben Rai“

Google mapping - Step Inside

40 x 360 photos taken on the day (mainly the clubhouse)

Most were uploaded to google maps creating "step Inside" .. this allows anyone on the net to  engage Virtual Step Inside (same same as Google maps Street View)

The result is shown in our directory page of the course

screenshot showing where to find it (at the top of page before “about”)

Directory page Royal Bang Pa-in, scroll down a little from top to see “step inside”

Hey … did we capture you in google map ?

  • if your in a 360 pic you can share the link

From google map: view the 360 section of the google map listing

Satellite view of course

Golfers will enjoy this

  • zoom in and move along the course 

  • View on desktop or mobile phone

Bonus: there’s an excellent phone app that offers 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 leaderboard score to share with players or friends

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