IPGC golf update
As it reaches its tenth “birthday”, the International Pattaya Golf Club (IPGC) continues to expand with the recent inclusion of two new venues, and another in the pipeline. The original venues at the Haven and the Pattaya Golf Society were joined some years ago by the Jomtien Golf Group, based in Soi 5 and the Donovan’s group based at Green Valley.
Now IPGC members have an increased choice with the inclusion of The Links Bar, only a power fade north of the market in Soi Buakhao. The organizer there is none other than Russell Exley who has made an excellent fist of running the Haven golf group over the last year or so. The Links Bar will be playing golf on Tuesdays and Thursdays each week from its spacious and comfortable facilities.
IPGC is also pleased to welcome its newest acquisition in the form of The Sportsman’s Retreat. This bar is run by two English owners – Paul and Dean. It is a pleasant bar playing golf in small groups at present. They are situated at Soi Khaotalo about half a mile from the railway line on the left heading inland and they will initially play IPGC golf on Wednesdays and Fridays.
Finally on the horizon is another Jomtien based golf group which will be up and running soon and more details will be announced when the launch is due.
In the current economic climate expanding the choice of venues offering value-for-money golf days is an appropriate way of responding to the wishes of its members and IPGC will continue to deliver just that as it enters its second decade as a major golf provider in Pattaya and the Eastern Seaboard. It offers competition golf seven days a week, professionally organized and at rates which suit the pockets of all golfers, residents and tourists alike.
