1. Koh Samui: Football Golf & Botanical Gardens
Kick your football into each of the 18 holes at this unique tropical course and you’ll soon be wanting to tell everyone about this great new game. The whole course is well shaded among the palm trees so you can stop and enjoy the garden scenery as you play too. The activity starts with pickup at your hotel reception. From there, you will go directly to the course privately with no other groups. The course is located 5 minutes from the Big Buddha and 10 minutes along the beach road from the main resort town of Chaweng meaning the transfer time is short and usually under 15 minutes. Upon arrival, you will be greeted by the friendly team and they will provide you with a scorecard and the footballs. Then you’re away playing holes 1 to 11 first. Each hole is like a beautifully landscaped private garden so you won’t be disturbed by others while you play. After hole 11, take a break at reception with a free soft drink, a homemade traditional coconut snack, and some cool towels to help you refresh. After your break, finish the rest of the course from holes 12 to 18. Once the 18 holes are complete, you will get a prize and a podium photo then it’s back to your hotel. Alternatively, your driver will gladly drop you at the nearby Big Buddha or Blai Leam temples if they are also on your sightseeing agenda for the day.
