Mae Jo Golf Club – Not Recommended
On the advise of our hotel in Chiang Mai, we drove to Mae Jo Golf Club outside of Chiang Mai. Even with a working GPS system, it was not easy to find Mae Jo. There were few signs along the way, but after stopping a number of times, positioning with our GPS and looking at maps, we got there!
Unfortunately, getting their was a huge disappointment. There was no staff outside to greet us or provide any service what-so-ever. It was around 4:30 PM on a Sunday and the course seemed empty, the pro shop was closed, and only one table of beer drinkers were in the club house.
I ordered a “Thai Ice Tea” but instead, got a glass of Lipton, which is not what I asked for. The menu was not interesting, and there was no service. The Mae Joe Golf Club was like a ghost town!
There were no signs, no maps, and after asking a number of people, I found the driving range. It was a barren field with no targets, no flags, no greens, no traps, nothing. There was no service. It was very disappointing. In a nutshell, I do not recommend Mae Joe Golf Club and will not return anytime soon. There are much better clubs in Chiang Mai.
In fact, we highly recommend Stardome in Chiang Mai. Excellent service. Great atmosphere. You will be greeted when you drive up. Caddies are there from early morning until 10pm to take care of your clubs. This list goes on and on. Great food and menu. Nice coffee shop with super iced lattes. Lots of very nice staff. Top quality driving range. Also, second to Stardome, we recommend Lanna Golf. More on these great clubs later. Avoid Mae Jo Golf Club.
