Northern Thailand is known for its world class golf courses. You can tee off to your heart’s content by staying in a golf resort in Chiang Mai. Here are some tips on finding the perfect place to stay:

  1. Book a private villa that is within minutes of Chiang Mai’s best golf courses. The key is to have access to the world-class, 18-hole par 72 Summit Green Valley Country Club. This famous course was planned by Dennis Griffiths & Associates, and is surrounded by the mountain vistas this part of Thailand is known for. Summit Green Valley Country Club features a club house, bar, restaurant, and pro shop. Golf instruction is available.
  1. Make sure that they make all golf arrangements on your behalf. Staying in a luxury suite or private villa in a luxurious golf resort in Chiang Mai often means getting your own butler, who can organize all of your golfing trips for you.
  1. Choose a resort with many other facilities—not just golf. You will want to do many other things during your holiday. And even if you decide to spend most of your days playing golf, your companions (your family or friends) might have other ideas. This is why it makes sense to choose a 5-star golf resort that offers plenty of other health, wellness, and relaxation amenities. Look for a private swimming pool, tennis courts, a gym or fitness center, a nice spa, and several on-site restaurants and bars. Some hotels even offer mountain bikes so you can enjoy the beautiful trails Chiang Mai is known for. And at the end of the day, you can walk around the property’s beautifully landscaped grounds.

You also want a resort that can arrange visits to Chiang Mai’s many attractions, from temples to night markets. Make sure that they offer private tour transportation as well as airport transfers.
