Khon Kaen Golf
 
Enjoy the golfing experience in Khon Kaen, Thailand. Welcome to Khon Kaen Golf, a site dedicated to providing information on what is available for the golfer in this part of Thailand.
 
 
 

In 2007 Khon Kaen had limited facilities available for the golfer; one 18 hole golf course, and several 9 hole golf courses. However things change and now (beginning of 2015) Khon Kaen can boast five 18 hole golf courses, a 9 hole golf course, and, depending upon how far you want to travel, more courses in neighbouring provinces.

 

Our primary aim is to be the focal point of information for those golfers who take part, or wish to take part, in our regular golf events. This information can be found in the ‘Players Area’. There you will find details of forthcoming events, reports and results of past events, handicaps and other (hopefully) pertinent information.

 

A secondary aim is to inform the visitor to Khon Kaen of the golf facilities that are available for their enjoyment. Let us say at the outset this is not a business site, we do not sell anything and we do not organise golf tours; the information is provided to help the visitor make up their own mind. This information is given in the ‘Visitors Area’. There you will find details of all the local courses, some courses further afield, and other facilities available for the local and visiting golfer alike.

We hope you find this site useful but are always looking to improve; we welcome any constructive comments you may wish to make. If you require further information you can contact us, we will do our best to help.

Player of the Year 2017


As at the end of November 84 different players have competed in month end stableford events, which represents 7 new players in November alone!!! We can expect a record number of different participants by the end of the year I think.  There was a very Udon Thani bias at the top of the leader board until Cheston Chua posted his 4th qualifying card in October and now jointly leads the field with 147 points with Paul Samme who increased his 4 round total by 1 point recently at the Dam. Cam McDonald , and Trevor Edge are next, tied on 146, Steve Hoss has 145 now and Gareth Davies comes next with 143.
Very much all to play for in December at Singha Park GC at the end of the year, where a 42 points from someone will likely take it down. Good luck to all!!

Late arrivals


I would remind all golfers to ensure that they arrive AND register by 08.00 for KK Golf events as far as is possible. There is significant work involved organising the draw and pairing people with golf carts and turning up after 08.15 really does throw the proverbial spanner in the works!!! A special thank you to you all for recent timely arrivals, thanks!!!

Website available storage space

In order to keep the site up to date it has been necessary to delete some of the old photos from competitions dating back to 2014 and early 2015. Where possible I have tried to keep the photo of the winner but have deleted the peripheral prize pictures.





The final of the 2017 matchplay took place at in conjunction with the end of month stableford at Singha Park GC on 30th August and the two heavyweights in the competition, Dave Gourno (2016 winner) and Doctor Ken battled it out over 18 holes.
Dave Gourno took an early lead and a 2 hole lead at the 9th hole refreshment hut where clearly Ken refuelled to come home in gross 38 to ultimately seal victory on hole 18 by a 2 hole margin.
Our thanks to everyone who took part in this year's event and look out for next year's event, usually making the draw in April.


Doctor Ken holds the Matchplay Trophy after his 2017 triumph.

Dave Gourno, winner in 2016 runner up in the 2017 Matchplay event, well done Dave.
