Many companies in Australia organise golf trips to Pattaya for their employees. The setting provides an excellent opportunity for them to bond with each other and have a splendid time, playing golf at some of the most stunning courses in the world.
However, a trip such as this requires a great deal of planning and groundwork. The itinerary has to be set well in advance and the plan would have to be executed to perfection. Here are some tips that will help you plan a glitch-free, and successful corporate golf trip to Pattaya.
Set the date
It’s a good idea to check on which days a larger number of employees would be able to be part of the corporate trip. It’s important to ensure that there are no major annual meetings, product launches or project completion dates on the days that you are planning the trip. Make it a point not to organise the trip towards the end of the fiscal year, as that’s a very busy time for every department.
It’s also best to organise the trip to end on a weekend; this will give the employees a day or two to get back into gear for a work week. Just as you do all this, keep in mind that the monsoon season starts in June and extends right through to September.
The rain pattern in Pattaya is very erratic, but the rain showers rarely ever last for over an hour and golfers just wait till the weather clears up a bit before they head for the greens again. Monsoon golf tours to Pattaya tend to be considerably cheaper than other times of the year as it is off-season. And so, if you’re on a tight budget, you may want to consider this option.
Chalk-out a budget
Once you have your itinerary in place, contact at least three golf tour operators and ask them to give you quotes. Check these thoroughly and:
- Understand what is included in the pricing they have provided you
- Find out which resorts you will be staying at
- Which golf courses you will be playing at etc.
- You also need to find out which meals are included in the quote they have provided
- Check whether any sightseeing is part of the cost
- Check what kind of discounts they provide for larger groups as that can make a significant difference to the overall cost of the trip
- You should also find out whether they provide ground transportation and whether it’s included in the quoted price
Some more considerations
If your company has organised similar trips in the past, you should find out at what the expenses had been at that time. This will help you plan things in a more organised manner. Find out which tour operator had managed those trips, which employees had travelled then, and check how their experience had been. This firsthand information can prove to be useful in helping you identify which tour operator you should zero-in on.
