The State Railway of Thailand (SRT) will be opening up bids to use 500 rai of land at the Royal Hua Hin Golf Course once a survey is complete.

 

Pollsters Nida have been commissioned to make a survey that will be completed in June, reported Thai business media. 

 

A previous survey conducted five years ago suggested that it would attract investment of 1.1 billion baht but the target is now 6 billion. 

 

Health centers, hotels, sports facilities and an international school as well as "green areas" are all thought to be in the offing on the land with SRT hopes they can raise 1.6 billion baht from various deals. 

 

It will be designated "mixed use" land at what is Thailand's oldest golf course. 

 

It is by the Boon Rawd Brewery station.

6 billion baht would feed a lot of poor people and buy a lot of vaccines.

But creaming off 30% to go into certain pockets is part of Thai  culture.  Looking after the poor has never has been a concern.

So the oldest golf course in Thailand will become another car park and concrete jungle? Why can’t the powers that be see that (managed properly!)this is such is such a tourist draw and attraction to so many visitors?

If it was such a tourist draw and attraction then they would not be selling off 500 rai.

 

Ive played there a couple of times over the last 10 years, it might be the oldest but its a bit of a goat track.

 

During drought sessions it seems some golf courses have priority over some areas in regards to who needs the water most! So in that respect the area is oversubscribed with golf courses and needslessly watering them in the hope visitors return in the same numbers is probably not the best plan.
