Wow!*** Sometimes we are reminded why they say “Amazing Thailand!”
Today I was a*guest of Starwood Hotels and Resorts**to play in a special Starwood golf event at the Alpine Golf and Sports Club just outside of Bangkok.** Thank you Starwood and the General Manager of the Royal Orchid Sheraton, who was very kind to invite me as his guest.
This is one of the finest golf courses in Thailand (and Thailand has many fine golf course!)*
The Starwood folks were fantastic!**Everyone was*amazing.** Some holes had professional golfers offering tips to help my game.* Other holes had delicious Chinese and Thai food.* One hole had supurb freezing cold champagne waiting to refresh us from the hot Thai sun!!
The Alpine Golf Course was really challenging, so the champagne was needed as much as appreciated.** There was large water hazards on almost every hole; and some of the holes had so many large bunkers I thought I was on the beach!*** You could not miss a shot, because it you did, it was either in the water, the sand, on rolling hills covered with green trees - and believe me, that where I played most of the day!!
Everything was great, an*amazing experience with a touch of* lass you can only find in Thailand, plus the added luxury of being the guest of Starwood, which is a also an unbelievable class act as well.
Being a loyal Starwood customer has great privileges, not to mention some of the finest hotel and resort properties in the world, so please, take my advice and become a Starwood member if you are not already.
By the way, I am currently staying at another exceptional Starwood property, the Plaza Athenee Le Meridian.** This is a fantastic property.* I highly recommend you*stay at the Plaza Athenee Le Meridian if you are in Bangkok for business or leisure.
