The program for the Thailand Golf Travel Mart 2017 in Khao Yai includes an interesting session that is about more than just travel and tourism. On July 25, the Thailand Golf Paradise Seminar will include sessions on golf course design, maintenance, and renovation.
Hear from Pirapon Namatra of GolfEast about the golf courses of Thailand and their design, from Neil Cleverly, the well known superintendent from Rio de Janeiro's Olympic course, Chris May and Jon Tomlinson from IMG, and others involved with golf course operations in Thailand.
I (Micah Woods) will be speaking about The best playing conditions with the fewest inputs. Thailand really is a golf paradise when it comes to golf courses with great playing conditions, and I will explain how to achieve those conditions with the fewest inputs of water, pesticides, mowing, and fertilizer.
These photos show a bit of the variety in golf course turf in Thailand.
