The primary reason people travel is to get away from their regular environment and experience something novel and interesting. And it’s also why many companies in Australia now organise golf trips for their employees. It’s a great way to move away from the regular grind and see a new place and experience new cultures. In this respect, Pattaya is becoming a much sought-after destination and it’s common to see people on corporate golf trips there.
Things to carry
If you are part of such a trip, you must be excited about it; however it’s important that you pack suitably for it. Listed here are some must-carry items for your corporate golf trip:
Travel golf bag
If you are a regular golf player, you are sure to have your own set of clubs and will be more comfortable using them to play golf in Pattaya. The only downside is that they aren’t really something you can easily take as carry-on luggage on your flight. This is why the type of travel golf bag you carry is important. You need to make sure that your clubs are transported safely. There are 3 main types of golf bags:
- Soft cases – These are alright for car travel as they are padded and flexible, but they won’t be suitable for air travel.
- Hard cases – These bags provide excellent protection, however, they can be quite bulky. You may have to be a little careful about how much luggage weight you carry
- Hybrid– These are combination bags – they have a soft body that helps conserve room; but they also have a hard top that protects the club heads.
One more essential feature in a golf bag is wheels. These will help you commute through parking lots and airports, more easily.
Back-up golf shoes
It’s not uncommon for shoes to get wet on the golf course and they are smelly, uncomfortable and unhealthy; In addition, they can be extremely distracting when you are playing a round of golf. The best way to avoid all these problems is to pack in an extra pair of golf shoes. Alternatively, you can also pack a pair of sports shoes that you would be able to wear even when you are not on the golf course.
This means the clothes you carry should be suitable for rain, sun and colder weather. Ideally, you should also carry caps/hats and wind jackets, just in case the weather plays truant.
Sure, you are on vacation, but you are on a corporate vacation and you might just end up meeting people from your industry, at clubhouses or other local hangouts. The extra cards might come handy.
While you pack your golfing clothes, don’t forget to pack clothing for non-golf activities too. Carry t-shirts, comfortable shorts, work-out clothes as well as swimming trunks. When you carry clothes you can throw away or leave behind, it frees up some space in your bag for souvenirs and other things you have shopped for.
