If you are planning a corporate golf trip to Pattaya, you know that it will involve a lot of detailing. You would have to start on the process and start researching at least a few months in advance to collate information such as tour operators that organise these trips, the different resorts and golfing greens in Pattaya, the best time to travel etc. There are some other things you should focus on as well. The one way to ensure that your trip is a resounding success is to zero-in on a tour operator who would be able to work closely with you, provide all the information you need and help you with all the little details that are part and parcel of organising any trip abroad. Here are a few tips that will help you plan it in a better way and add the fun quotient to your corporate golfing trip to Pattaya:
Tips for a Fun Corporate Golf Trip
#1 One person should be in charge
It’s very important that one person in your organisation be in charge of managing the itinerary, tracking all the reservation deadlines and following-up with employees to make their deposits on time. That person can also decide which smaller tasks can be delegated to someone, without shaking the boat in any way. If you have too many people in charge that can result in a lot of confusion and certain vital details such as tee times etc. may get bungled-up. The one way to ensure that things run smoothly and that no one plays the blame game is to have one responsible person managing it all.
#2 Date selection
When you are planning a trip for a large group of people from your workplace, it’s very different from planning a trip for your family or a group of friends. This is especially true if the participants are going to be employees from different departments within your organisation. It can be extremely tempting to try to meet the scheduling requirements of every person. However, no matter how hard you try, it’s one thing you won’t be able to successfully manage. Get some information related to group availability and then put forth a tentative date. If you find that it’s not feasible for most of the people, you can then adjust that date accordingly. The one way to ensure maximum participation is to roll out information related to the planned trip well in advance. This can help people organise schedules and plan leaves based on those days.
#3 Factor in some local sightseeing and fun
It’s true that the primary reason for the trip is to play golf in Pattaya. However, you shouldn’t lose sight of the fact that you are travelling to a new country and it’s a good idea to take in some of the sights, sounds and the local culture. In fact, we’d go so far as to say that this is an important part of the entire trip and should be planned well. When you are done with golfing, you wouldn’t just want to head back to your resort and sit in your room every single day, would you? Discuss this aspect with your tour operator and get their suggestions on which places you can visit. Here is a list of some of the most popular tourist spots:
- Walking Street
- Sanctuary of Truth
- Tiffany Cabaret Show
- Nong Nooch Tropical Garden
- Pattaya Floating Market
- Wat Phra Khao Yai
- Cartoon Network Amazone Waterpark
- Ripley’s Believe It Or Not
