  3. Thank you all for your comments so far, obviously going to a lawyer would be the best option but I thought it might be worth posting here as someone may have said "Oh yeah something similar happened to me, this is what I did...................." but I suppose that was I little optimistic
  4. What would be considered "solid evidence" ?
  5. Hi all, 8 years ago a foreigner ran off with $400,000 of my money here in Thailand. 8 years later he has resurfaced in Thailand and I would like to know if I have grounds to get my money back? There are two loans in question, one loan was to his company from my company (his company failed) and the second loan was a personal loan. He disappeared but not before signing a contract stating details of the loans (with witnesses). Also signed was a personal acknowledgment that he was responsible for his company failure and under the understanding that the money was to be paid back Any advice would be welcome
  6. If you would like to see where each golf society is playing in Pattaya click here http://birdie.in.th/en/golf-groups/thailand/chonburi
  7. The concept of peer review is an essential element of the USGA handicapping system. Without peer review the Handicap Index loses it inherent value and is just a number. Most USGA systems around the world are based at a golf club where the majority of players know each other. Posting scores in person immediately following the round at the course is the USGA’s preferred way to expose scores to peer review. However that is not possible here in Thailand as most players do not belong to a golf club and do not have the option to post the score at the club for others to see. This system I found has some what overcome that where all scores posted are available for all others to see. They appear on their homepage as “Joe Bloggs played 18 holes at Rayong Green Valley and scored a 92 on Saturday 16th July” Also you can view all players scores, scorecards and photos of scorecards by clicking on a players playing history at any time. The site is called Birdie Thailand
  8. All courses in Phuket are listed here http://birdie.in.th/en/golf-courses/Thailand/Phuket with slope and course ratings
