Golf Course Closures

Post by LEfant60 » Sat Oct 15, 2016 8:00 pm

During this time of mourning for the late King of Thailand (RIP), without sounding callous, will the Golf course's of Hua Hin be closed? I have read most sporting events have been cancelled, if so for how long? Should I cancel my trip? I have the utmost respect for the culture of Thailand and understand what they must be going through spiritually! To all the Thai people you have my deepest sympathy!

I've no news about golf specifically, but I would suggest waiting a day or 2 until making any decision e.g. earlier today it was announced all Thai football had been cancelled until next season. About 4 hours later it was announced no sporting events would be cancelled. Let the dust settle for a few days.

I would suggest looking again Tuesday or Wednesday.

Can anyone tell me if it acceptable to use the concrete path through the golf course as as running track. I ran there very early on Friday morning and nobody seemed bothered.

^ then carry on.

You can pretty much do whatever you want until someone tells you that you can't and then you can disregard that as well.

We are in the golf business and thus far all golf courses are operating as normal except at some there maybe restrictions on alcohol sales for a few days.
As far as running on a golf course. I would not recommend it. You are likely at some point to either bother the players or more importantly get hit by a golf ball. Most courses in Hua Hin such as Black Mountain, Banyan, Springfield, Palm Hills, Majestic and so on definitely won't allow it.

The only course I have seen joggers is Palm Hills since it winds around the residential area of Palm Hills even though the management has posted rules forbidding jogging on the course. It is very dangerous to jog on the cart path as golf balls often get mis-hit and stray into weird places and those balls can travel at a high speed. The golfers usually don't like non-golfers hanging around the fairways anyways.

I will abstain from running the Royal Hua Hin course in future. I would not like getting the golfers balls in my face.
I was really after a back nine joke or something from Caddyshack but this will suffice.
