Isaan & Khon Kaen Golf Information
Play at top golf courses in the Isaan area!
The Northeast of Thailand is also referred to Isaan (also Isan, Issan, I-san, or Isarn) and includes about a third of the Kingdom of Thailand. Golf in the northeastern provinces is generally less well known and less expensive than other parts of Thailand. Isaan has golf courses scattered around the region and located in each province.
Most golf courses are located or near major Isaan cities, Khon Kaen for example, has four 18-hole golf courses within 40 minutes from the city center. Singha Park and Dancoon are the two best and each has hosted Asian Tour events. Victory Park in Nong Kai near the Laos border has also played host to a number of regional golf events. Additionally, there is no shortage of challenging 9-hole courses in rural areas throughout Isaan.
Other than golf, Isaan is known for being a rural area where local people retain the original Thai way of life. Large open spaces with square rice fields and water buffalo are interspersed with huge mountain ranges. Isaan is bounded north and east by the Mekong River from Laos and southeast by Cambodia. Isaan is excellent for culture and nature-oriented golfers as great Khmer temples, archaeological ruins, and national parks can be visited and easily combined with golfing in Isaan.
