Emerging from the lockdown, lunch at the FCCT 

May 6, 2020

The FCCT welcomes the government’s decision to partially lift Thailand’s national lockdown, and with respect for social distancing and hygiene measures, will reopen from Thursday May 7, Monday to Friday (except public holidays).

Meals from just 190 baht will be served from 11:30am to 5pm, with a limited but diverse menu featuring the FCCT’s signature curries, fish’n’chips and our popular vegan burger.

Due to extension of the 10pm-4am curfew and the ban on onsite sales of alcohol at restaurants until May 31, we will operate during daylight hours only, until business can return to normal.

Please drop in any time before 6pm for a socially-distanced, delicious and modestly priced meal.

For the time being we will also continue online talks and events, after a series of successful livestreamed discussions (see videos on our YouTube page, including our May 4 event, “Media under Covid-19”).

We will also continue with our special editions of the FCCT Bulletin, featuring news briefings and updates on coronavirus relief efforts, social issues, restaurants and urban life, as well as interviews with a diverse range of people. We hope you enjoy it.

We once again extend our deepest gratitude to all who so kindly contributed relief funding to the FCCT during our shutdown. We are glad to report that your contributions have nearly covered our large overheads in this period.

Many of our kind donors have been anonymous, and we ask again whether, even if you do not wish to be publicly honoured, you could identify yourself to us so we can at least thank you privately; please email [email protected].

Even if you cannot donate, we are extremely grateful for your support, and sincerely hope you will drop into the club in the coming weeks.

SPORTS
GOLF COURSES OPEN

All our golf courses in Chonburi including Pattaya were re-opening May 1, 2020.
Golfers must show ID card or passport to be allowed to play at Thailand golf courses
The East Coast Golf Courses Management Association reminds all golfers that during the COVID-19 pandemic, to play golf in Thailand including the eastern seaboard, Thai golfers must show their ID card and all foreign nationals must show their real passports (no photocopies).

Foreign passport holders must show an entry stamp to show that they have resided in Thailand for the past 14 days.

Without these documents, you will not be allowed to play and it would be a waste of time going to the golf course.
This is only a temporary measure until the spread of the coronavirus is controlled.

Thank you for your cooperation
