Welcome to the September 2017 issue of the Asian Golf Nation, the source for news breaking information about golf in Asia. Also, unique golf playing tips for Indochina’s tropical environment, announcements of golf travel promotions, and our latest subscription offer are all integral parts of today’s newsletter.
The summer in Asia is sometimes referred to the “rainy season” due to daily afternoon downpours. However, did you know that September is one my two favorite months for golf in Asia? Summer brings cooler temperatures, green fairways, and is a season of golf festivals and sports days. Teeing off early to mid-morning ensures excellent and uninterrupted golf; rain comes late in the day or overnight. Fewer tourists make for some great golf prices too. For example, on Wednesday green fees at Siam Country Club, Waterside Course are 40% off normal rates. Over in Hua Hin, it’s the final month of the golf festival, and green fees at the top courses like Black Mountain Golf Club and Banyan Golf Club are only USD 50. What better than world-class golf with green fees at muni prices? Ask your Golfasian travel specialist and take advantage of these limited time offers!
