Playing Golf at the Santiburi Samui Country Club

The Santiburi Samui Country is one of the top places to go golfing in Thailand

A lot of golf enthusiasts usually prefer having their holidays spent at some place where there’s a golf course nearby. Fortunately, such a development so happens to be one of the many Koh Samui attractions that make spending a holiday within the tropical paradise even more worthwhile.

All the travel guides say Santiburi Samui Country club is a championship course that’s built on the mountain of the island. Spanning 6,930 yards, this par-72, 18-hole course features unique challenges of its own. This magnificent development blends in astonishingly well with its natural environment – downhill slopes, steep hills, and winding fairways which pass through the coconut forest, cliffs, and mountain creeks – making it none like any other most golfers have seen in their lifetime.

This club has a set of rules and guidelines applicable to everyone who wants to play, which includes making reservations in advance. Those who come in groups are allowed five people – including non-golfers – in total only. Golfers are required to register at the proshop at least 15 minutes before game time. Moreover, each golfer is expected to use a golf cart and have a caddie.

Koh Samui travel guides say there’s a dress code that’s applicable to both male and female players. For the men, they should wear shirts with collars and sleeves at all times. For their bottoms, slacks, golf shorts, or walking shorts are acceptable.

Females should also wear collared shirts with sleeves as well. For their lower garments, slacks, mid-length shorts and mid-length skirts are appropriate. Both men and women are required to wear soft-spike or spike-less golfing shoes only. Any type of footwear that could cause damage to the playing field is strictly prohibited.

Aside from the clubhouse, there are other amenities available to Santiburi’s customers, of which includes a classy restaurant with a spectacular view of the ocean.

Anyone looking to enjoy all that Santiburi Samui Country Club has to offer is advised to reserve accommodations at a nearby place, such as ShaSa Resort & Residences, which is considered by many to be one of the biggest Koh Samui attractions. Other than the fact this resort comes with luxurious suites and premier amenities, Koh Samui travel guides say it also offers its guest a FREE shuttle service going to the golf course as well.
