As promised I am starting a Golf in Ubon section.
There are four golf courses in Ubon that I have played at and I will review them all separately over the next few weeks. After that I hope to play at a few more located towards Sisaket and Mukdahan.
The บ้านสวนอุบล กอล์ฟ แอนด์ รีสอร์ท Baan Suan Ubon Golf and Resort is located on the main road to Sisaket just 100 metres off the main ring road (towards Sisaket.) For me it is the prettiest course within the Ubon city limits but it is also a very small course. Every hole is a par 3 and on hole number 4 I grab my smallest number club for the day which is a 5 iron! Every other hole I use either a 7, 8 or 9 off the tee!
If you call ahead you can organise a caddy but as a rule they are usually not hanging around. Also call ahead for an early tee off. (I usually tee off at 5.45am)
Their phone number is 045 268-290
***Edit – Jan 2011*** Brian emailed me and wrote “As of mid Dec 2010, Ban Suan Course is “Closed for Repairs”. They are not sure if they will re-open or not. Sad, it is a nice little links”
A real shame as it is a great little course.
