Join either the Pattaya Sports Club, IPCG, Birdie or presumably any Thai golf club and input cards to generate a handicap.

 

I can comment on the Pattaya Sports Club as I use it - can independently input cards online, no checking of scores unless you are playing in an organised competition or with a group where the organiser inputs for you. Handicap based on USGA system. One off joining fee and then small annual fee which gives you discounted golf around Pattaya - you could just use it for the handicap of course.

 

IPGC - uses Congu system.

 

Birdie - see separate post from TV.

Unfortunately not limited to Thais - look at any of the bigger competitions and check the winning scores - both individual and teams.

I have played in some Texas Scrambles around Pattaya,but only because it is a good price and our group is playing for the fun. Afterwards we just sit and laugh at the winning scores :biggrin:

Actually sometimes the score is for real ...we used to play with Thailand Seniors ..Mrs J had a genuine 18 h/c ... we played the annual comp at Muang Ake a few years ago and she shot 12 over!! ...she actually won the lady prize ..but only by one shot ...... she has never got near that 12 over again.... I always feel sorry for my caddy as they seem to gamble on us at every hole ...big mistake!!

Emphasis on the sometimes unfortunately. More likely to happen in an individual comp - but it is when you see the same people with high 40s points score playing off mid-high teens handicap. Apparently happens a lot around Pattaya.
