LIV Golf, the 54-hole tournament, is heading to Bangkok, Thailand, with big names, big energy, and big money. The highly publicized new Saudi-backed LIV Golf series will tee off October 7-9 at Stonehill Golf Course in Bangkok. Located on 340 acres in the Pathum Thani province, Stonehill is Thailand’s newest and most prestigious private golf club and country club.
The LIV Golf Invitational in Thailand promises unrelenting action from top players such as Cam Smith, Dustin Johnson, Phil Mickelson, Brooks Kopeka, and Phachara Khongwatmai, battling it out for US$25,000,000 winners’ prize. To be expected, there will be 12 teams, shotgun starts, plus live music, good vibes, and superb Thai cuisine.
Thailand is known for tropical beaches, opulent royal palaces, ancient ruins, and ornate Buddhist temples. But many may not be aware that Thailand offers the golf vacation of a lifetime, with a paradise of world-class golf courses.
With Thailand’s iconic cultural attractions in Bangkok, white sand beaches in Phuket, mountainous terrain in northern Chiang Mai, and some of the highest-rated hotels in the world, Thailand offers its visitors an endless selection of travel experiences and incomparable value. The hospitable people of Thailand are legendary, and Thailand’s ever-expanding menu of things to do and see now includes LIV Golf and some of the best courses to play in the hemisphere, with female caddies and all the amenities.
A golf trip to Thailand can include side visits to exotic palaces, dinner cruises on the Chao Phraya River through Bangkok, elephant rides, eco-tourism experiences in the jungle, world-famous massages … and, of course, great Thai food!
Golf development in Thailand has recently shifted over the years, with excellent courses being built by some of the best architects in the world. Several golf courses in and around Bangkok have hosted PGA and LPGA Tournaments, some of which have been won by a particular Thai-American player named Tiger. Some of Asia’s best tracks are the Thai Country Club, Siam Country Club, and Chiang Mai Highlands. And now there is the lavish Stonehill Golf Club, host of the 2022 LIV Golf Invitational in Thailand.
