EG Golf Driving Range

Home on the Range

The game of golf can be time consuming and an expensive hobby. If you’re not very good it can also be a very frustrating game. Some days you just can’t seem to hit the ball worth a damn and what started out as a stress-free 9 or 18 hole round, walking outdoors and playing with friends can turn into a 2 or 4 hour nightmare of hacking around and double-bogey scores.

Form

On those days when I just don’t have the energy, desire or time for a 9 or 18 hole round, I head to the range to hit some balls. The range is a cheap, stress-free place to be outdoors and still able to practice some basic fundamentals of the game. I can also spend as much or as little time as I want there, unlike a golf course where I’m committed to 9 or 18 holes.

Summertime in the Philippines is hot, especially in April. It’s 90 degrees plus everyday and more humid than usual. Spending 2 or 4 hours on a golf course in Angeles City is not an ideal situation in this stifling heat and humidity.

Signage

EG Golf Driving Range is an unpretentious, no frills driving range and golf shop that is the perfect place to go when I can’t make it out on the course, but still want to swing some clubs or hit some balls. It’s not a fancy place but it completely serves its purpose and the prices are very reasonable.

Affordable

Mid-mornings and early afternoons are less crowded due to most golfers heading out to play rounds of golf. Early evening hours provide a cooler opportunity but last call Monday to Saturday is 8:30pm and 7:00pm on Sundays.

Pro Shop & Repair Services

EG Golf has a pro shop with a fairly large selection of golf clubs, gloves, apparel, bags, shoes and balls available at reasonable prices. Their selection of name brand golfing products makes EG Golf a one-stop shop for all your golf related needs.

Spikes

Sticks

EG Golf also has a repair shop that can re-grip, repair and make other custom adjustments to your sticks that will help improve your game on and off the course.

Practice Before Your Next Game

Spending time on the range can only help improve your golf game and EG Golf Driving Range provides an excellent, not overly crowded and unpretentious place for your to work on your mechanics.

Hitting Balls

If you’re looking for a high-end, country club style range then this probably isn’t the spot for you and there are other places in Angeles City for you to hit some balls. But if you simply want to get some warm up swings in before heading out on the links for your next game then EG Golf provides a completely adequate and fairly priced arena to suit your needs.

EG Golf

EG Golf Driving Range is located on Fil-Am Friendship Highway near the intersection of Angeles-Porac-Floridablanca-Dinalupihan Road, Barangay Cut-Cut. EG Golf is kitty-corner from the Jollibee restaurant at the corner of this intersection on Friendship Highway.

Playing Golf in Pattaya

Thailand is now the world’s number one tourist destination and it is rapidly becoming a golfer’s paradise for millions of new tourists every year. The secret is out and golf courses are becoming harder and harder to get tee times. Greens fees are affordable and the courses are world-class golfing excursions for the beginner or expert golfer.

Fortunately, much of the tourism is focused on the cities of Bangkok and Phuket. Pattaya and the surrounding area is still a golfer’s paradise with over 25 golf courses in the surrounding area for players at all levels.

But how do you know which links are going to be up to your skill level? How can you even get to some of these courses in an unfamiliar land where English isn’t the first language spoken?

If you’ve got a lot of free time on your hands you could spend countless hours researching on the internet, arduously planning out your trip and which courses you plan to play. Most people don’t have the patience or time for this.

Another option is to turn to a company like Thai-Ger Line Golf in Pattaya who serve as a one-stop shop and guide you through your entire golfing vacation without you having to do much of anything except book some tours and showing up to play. Thai-Ger Line Golf will take care of everything for you.

All-Inclusive Golf Tours

I came across Thai-Ger Line Golf completely by accident. I happened to be staying across the street in a guest house on my trip and decided to stop by to see if I could speak with the owner about his business for this article. Unfortunately we were unable to connect and meet up but I was able to stop by one day and speak with Kik, ask some questions and snap a few photos. Even without a face to face meeting I was able to get a lot of information.

Thai-Ger Line Golf has been in business for over 15 years. They have forged relationships with many golf courses in the area and offer daily golf tours starting at 1800 Baht (approximately $60.00) per person. This fee includes:

  1. Transfer to and from the office to the golf course
  2. Caddy
  3. Greens Fees

Office

These daily tours run on weekdays and should be booked a day or two in advance. Custom tours and packages including hotel bookings are also available as are weekend and holiday trips at some higher end golf courses for additional fees. Contacting the office or stopping by to speak with the knowledgeable staff will ensure you’re playing courses that meet your skill level.

If you’re simply looking to play one round of golf in Pattaya or want to spend your entire time playing as many different courses as possible then Thai-Ger Line Golf can help make your dream golfing vacation a reality at a competitive price. They have packages that include 3, 6 or 8 rounds of golf. All you need to do is book your tour, show up and play.
