The Pro Shop
The Pro shop is being equipped to offer a club repair and maintenance service and it is hopeful that this will be operational by the new high season, November 2008.
Already John offers as regional distributor, Cleveland, Titleist and Cobra brands and most months there is an exhibition for those wanting to try out the new clubs at the range. Dates for equipment shop to open and exhibitions will be posted in the Hua Hin Golf Gossip column on the Hua Hin Forum.
Also, the Pro Shop is already being used as an ideal location to sell your second- hand clubs, an ideal place to find your first set or the odd 'one-off' that takes your fancy. You can of course try all clubs on the range before purchase.
Please note if you require transfers (inclusive both ways) mention when you book and the costs will be included, usually, Hua Hin hotels 500 baht and Cha Am and Pranburi 750-1000 baht per taxi/mini bus.
Perhaps it should be noted that an average golf game can, including your transport, caddy, tips and green fee, be as much as 5,000 baht per round per person.
