Golf in Thailand
Golf arrived in Thailand during the reign of King Rama V one hundred years ago.[when?] It was first played by nobles and other elitists of high society but is now played by a wider segment of the population.
Golf annually adds 8 billion baht into the local economy.
Thongchai Jaidee is the country's most successful golfer, winning a handful of major international tournaments. Other Thais who have had international success include Prayad Marksaeng, Boonchu Ruangkit, and Pornanong Phatlum.
