If you're looking for a great golfing experience, Chiang Mai is the place to be! With its lush green golf courses and stunning mountain views, you'll feel like you're in paradise. Here are our top 5 picks for the best golf courses in Chiang Mai:
Golf in Thailand is often claimed to be too hot to play, but if you go during the northern winter, around January and February, it gets quite chilly. This is truly ideal weather for golf, with several lovely golf courses available. Chiang Mai is a popular destination among both locals and tourists, so if we had to pick one thing, we would be shocked that there aren't more golf courses in the area.
The Alpine Golf Resort Chiang Mai is a 450 rai golf resort located in the center of the San Kampaeng natural forests, surrounded by magnificent mountains. It's without a doubt one of Chiang Mai's top golf courses for its natural beauty.
The breathtaking landscape that inspired the course's design was drawn from the stunning hills on its horizon. You're surrounded by nature at her finest, whether you're on any part of the course: magnificent lush green from the surrounding woods - which include a diverse collection of trees including golden teakwood, Dipterocarpus Alatus, and many more - or along with one of Bermuda's many creeks.
Designed by Mr. Lee Schmidt & Mr. Brian Curley of Schmidt-Curley Design Inc., Golf Magazine’s Architects of the Year in 2011, Chiang Mai Highlands received the accolade "Best Value For Money Golf Course in Asia" from Asian Golf Monthly in 2013.
The Summit Green Valley course, designed by Dennis Griffiths, the same architect as Thai Country Club in Bangkok, is one of Chiang Mai's finest-kept secrets. Summit Green Valley is located in the lowlands and is only 20 minutes from Chiang Mai's center. Hundreds of palm trees line the course, providing beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. This is the second golf course in the Green Valley group; it is preceded by Bangkok's The Lakes at Lumphini Park Golf Course.
