Vietnam has relaxed its Corona Virus lockdown rules, allowing people to go out while practicing social distancing.
It has also had an instant effect on the Vietnamese Golf clubs. Many have been open for a few days, and according to early reports, the majority of tee times are already fully booked until May 5th.
Local and ex-pat players have inundated the clubhouse receptions, keen to grab a tee time, after such a lengthy period of self-isolation.
Laguna Lang Co. announced that their Nick Faldo designed course close to Danang, had reopened on April 25th.
It seems that the same is likely to happen here in Thailand, as it is expected that certain provinces including Bangkok and Chonburi, will allow people to venture back onto the fairways and driving ranges.
It will be great news for the golf clubs and all their staff, who apart from course maintenance have not been open for business for a couple of months.
Some golf courses are already taking reservations in the hope that the Thai government will relax the rules and allow us to play golf.
As soon as we get any concrete information, we will let you know.
