With the course in near perfect condition there were some good scores.   As promised the Fairness Specialist sharpened his knife after the round.

Santiburi Golf Rates

The course membership rate remains at 110,000 baht.   The membership gets you free green fees for 2 years.  You still need to pay the caddie fee, caddie tip and if you wish the cart fee.   It is estimated that the break even cost is about 70 rounds over 2 years for those that play during high season.   For those that play mostly low season you need about 100 rounds over 2 years.

High season rates are in effect until February 28th.

Weekday green fee:  2000 baht

Weekend/Holiday green fee:  2500 baht

At this time those that play with Santiburi Members can usually get a discount of 30% off the green fee.   However, there are days when it is only 20%.

In addition there is the caddie fee of 300 baht plus the expected caddie tip of 300 baht.  Carts are optional at 600 baht per golfer.

Low season rates are expected to start March 1st and it will be posted as soon as we know what the rates are.

Chiang Rai Golfers

Chiang Rai Golfers is the other golf group in Chiang Rai.   The main difference between them and the Santiburi Members is that they prefer to play at Waterford or Happy City golf courses where it is cheaper.

There are several golfers in Chiang Rai that play with both groups.  Chiang Rai Golfers believe as we do that “All Are Welcome” and we encourage all golfers to play where they choose.   Both groups get together for community competitions about 5 times a year.

They can be contacted at chiangraigolfers@gmail.com and can be found on Facebook as Chiang Rai Golfers.
