Thailand Golf Courses Covid-19 Prevention Measures

Golfers wanting to return to their most favorite sport need to be aware of a few very simple Covid-19 prevention measures, Thailand golf courses have put in place for the safety of golfers, caddies and other staff:

Traveling to the golf course
In our vans which can seat nine golfers, we have limited that to four golfers per van.  Think about your travel arrangements ahead of time if travel with friends.

Arrival
Get there in good time. Registration is usually set up outside of the Pro Shop with players and drivers temperatures tested. You will be required to sign in with your name, contact number, email address and any additional information they require. Everyone is to wear masks. Some golf courses like Chee Chan Golf Resort in Pattaya are supplying masks and hand sanitizer to each golfer.

Players
Pre-Booked games only, no walk in at the moment. All players are encouraged to use the hand washing facilities. Book your tee-time on Thailandgolfers for the lowest rates.

Golf
Tee Times will be set wider apart and payment with card is encouraged. There are no shared golf carts and you can expect to see a ‘give’ circle at most courses.

Kiosks are open but for now no alcohol is permitted to be brought onto the property or consumed throughout the facilities anywhere. Do not rake the bunkers, handle your own golf ball and don’t share equipment.

Practice Facilities
Driving Range and practice areas are open but with limited numbers allowed on each at any given time.

Facilities
Depending on the course, locker room facilities are closed with access only to the toilets. Phoenix Gold Golf & Country Club in Pattaya for example have the locker rooms and showers open but disinfect every hour. Restaurants are generally open but with one person per table and tables set 1.5m apart

Pro Shops are mostly closed for the time being so stock up on balls before arriving at the golf course.

Caddies
They will at many courses ride on the back of the golf carts with the player driving. Cadies temperatures are tested, mask and gloves to be worn at all times. Caddies must not handle the club by the grip, by the head only. Caddie Tip: I would prepare this before leaving for the golf course, have it in a separate sealed bag for the caddie to collect at the end of the game.
