My background is Engineering, I visited Thailand for a golf trip some 5 years ago, and like so many wanted to be part of it.
Picture Phill Smith AusWaThai and Mark Segal CEO AsianGolf.

The opportunity to buy GolfAsian came up, at that time the company's focus was Golf Publications with a handful of staff and a humble client base, around 100 golfers per year.

"We saw the gaps in the market and decided to deliver a facility that meets the needs of the golfer". "I’m a golfer, so I regularly play the courses in Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam to experience all aspects of our tours and test our infrastructure to ensure it suits the end user". Now 7 years later we have 25 full time staff and recognised as Thailand’s premiere golfing facilitator.

How does “Golf in a Kingdom” add value for the golfer

We co ordinate more than 4,000 flights per year, the flights range from a single golfer for a single game to large groups, tours, tournaments and all aspects complimenting the experience.

People are welcome to DIY and save but when it goes wrong and it can and does in a foreign country it means disaster to your holiday.

We really exist for the upper market customer that is committed to enjoying themself, when you consider how much they already saved (compared to home) on accommodation, food and great shopping bargains there is not much to haggle over a green fee, but boy try to overcome the costs of “damage control” and you’ll wish to thought about quality rather than price.
