Best Golf Courses in Pattaya, Thailand’s No 1 Golfing Destination
Pattaya was recently voted as the number one golfing destination across Asia and Australasia, which is excellent news for golfing enthusiasts coming to the resort to stay in one of our vacation ownership villas.
The area’s first-class golfing facilities were given the thumbs up by IAGTO, the leading golf association in the world which is involved in 80 per cent of all golf tourist bookings in Asia and Australasia.
