Summit Green Valley is an easy 20-minute drive from Chiang Mai and its stunning palm-tree lined course is one you won’t want to rush.  A relaxing clubhouse, well-stocked pro shop and luxurious health spa make this a must for those who like a reward at the 18th hole or are travelling with a non-golfing partner!

Mae Jo Thailand’s rolling grassy fairways and challenging velvet greens are set against the beautiful backdrop of the impressive Thai peak – the Doi Suthep. If the views alone aren’t enough to relax you, take it easy after your round in the Lanna-style clubhouse, with some refreshing drinks and delicious Thai dishes.
