Golf is a speciality of the region, with more than 20 courses within an hour's drive of Pattaya, many designed by some of golf's most famous names, including Nick Faldo (Great Lakes), Jack Nicklaus (Laem Chabang), Gary Player (Si Racha) and Robert Trent Jones (Eastern Star Resort and Country Club). All offer good facilities and value for money in the 500 baht (green and caddy fee) to 2,500 baht range. It is advisable to wear long trousers rather than shorts to some of the more up-market clubs.
