Samui Football Golf
Samui Football Golf, Koh Samui
Just a few minutes’ drive from Chaweng Beach and a little further away from Lamai Beach is a totally new activity becoming popular with tourists looking for a change from lounging on the sands. Samui Football Golf combines kicking a ball around with the science of golf, with the only difference being the holes are far larger and feet are used instead of clubs. It’s the first such establishment in Asia, and is enormous fun for families and groups of friends.
The course provides 18 holes, mostly shaded from the hot sun and is open between 9:00am and 6:30pm every day. Playing time is around one and a half hours, and the total walk is 1km, great for youngsters and couch potatoes. As with traditional golf courses, it’s designed to challenge players and encourage competitive play with sand pits, water features and the 18 holes set shaded by beautifully tended bushes and trees. Visitors of all abilities and levels can play, and fun is guaranteed.
For more on-site exercise, players can stroll around a traditional coconut plantation set at the edge of the course. For those concerned about the fragile island environment, the management makes it clear that no toxic pesticides are used on the greens, resulting in the protection of lizards and other wildlife. Cool, damp towels and a refreshing drink are provided at the 10th hole. A round costs US$20, around 600 baht. Children play for half-price and a return visit within 4 days gets half-price for everyone.
