You can try Lum Luk Ka. I went there in Sep and they allowed me to tee off alone.
I took a cab there (overpriced cos they didn't want to run on meter) and got another cab back. The cab back is done through the club counter and there's a surcharge of 100 baht. I was staying in Lad Phrao so the cab fare was about 450 baht+surcharge.

actually can take cab lah... cheaper if only 1 pax

bbk taxi drivers very resourceful one.... from airport to your hotel, he will ask u your iternary

if u are pleased with his attitude, just tell him your intention to golf at this or that club, n if he is willing to drive u there n then back to hotel when u finish... give him time to pick u at hotel and time to pick u from golf course

usually at 16-17 hole, i will call his hp... 1hr to pick up then it will help him manage his time better

also i tell him i add another 100B if his pickup time swee swee...

as long as u are 1hr away from bbk.... dun think u have problem finding taxi

the sub-whatever name airport  has about 6-7 golf course nearby... all within 1 hr



my rule of thumb in bbk.... my hotel must be near BTS

if central bbk bad jam... just alight taxi n take BTS

Bro slinger also very regular golfer in bkk, u sure not night golf??

Anyway surrounding airport the few courses, thana city, maeng kaew, summit windmill, green valley, Lakewood and the list goes on...

As bro slinger suggested if wanna golf don't stay city centre those few regular hotels lah. As long as near bts can liao.

Lum Luk Ka, is a very good course.... No ob.

Heading to BKK in mid March. Since on a biz trip, better not to pack the clubs along. 

Any courses there have rental clubs available?
