Rain-Check/Refund Or What....?


Recommended Posts

OP: Terrible treatment by the golf course. If you can, write a letter to the committee. It will probably fall on blind eyes... you never know... If you have one, chose an alternative course where hopefully the treatment is better.

I personally have received terrible treatment at Pheonix course in Pattaya, I don't need to play there as I don't live in Pattaya - But when I do visit - I know I'll never play that course again.

I have experienced weird things on golf courses in Thailand, but most of them are somehow related to slow play or starter issues (or both) due to over bookings. I remember one course where an entire buss load of Koreans were allowed to tee off in front of me and a friend despite we had an earlier tee time. But this was something new. Very bizarre.

As you can imagine this became an abrupt ending to an otherwise cracking evening. What made things worse was that we probably would have finished our round in 2,5 hours, which in Bangkok is more or less unheard of (or at least I haven't played a round of golf in less than 3 hours since I moved from London 2006).

Good thing the rainy season is over soon, but that will probably bring more golfers to the scene, so I can kiss the >3 hour rounds good bye...

chuckd - If you don't like the thread don't post in it. It's you who is clearly trolling for an arguement.

Forethat is rightly annoyed. Anyone who has ever played golf would be annoyed at such treatment.

Forethat has also asked whether any other golfers have experienced such treatment, and if any other courses have such a policy.

Why do you think that being an argumentative soul gives you the right to take over someone else's thread ?

Ok, you disagree and believe the this golf course is well within its rights to treat a paid golfer in a subhuman manner... many others will disagree...

Vote with your feet, unfortunately these clubs do not give a flying toss if you never go back, the Koreans/Japanese/Russians and Thia's will play their because they are a completely different animal to us, we will not stand for rudeness or being treated differently where as the Japs,Koreans,Russians and Thia's do not care glad I am English!!!

Thank you for your comments. I will take your suggestions under consideration.

Let me ask what Mr. Forethat has done to recoup his lost four holes.

Has he been back to the golf course to find out why the lights were turned out?

Has he been back to the golf course to find out what their policies are concerning rain checks?

Has he talked to anybody in a position of authority at the golf course to determine if the course had been declared unplayable at any time during his outing day?

What are the posted hours of the golf course? What course was it and what time were the lights turned out?

Were Mr. Forethat and his playing partner using a golf cart? If not, the course management might not have even known there were any golfers remaining on the course. It was, after all, nighttime and raining. Perhaps they thought a sensible person might have already retired from the course under the circumstances, not realizing of course that most golfers are not sensible.

Mr. Forethat claims that some member of the course staff told him they wanted to close because there weren't that many players. Who was this staff person and what management position did he hold?

I provided Mr. Forethat three rain check policies picked at random from the internet. Two of the three would not have given him a rain check at all and the third would have given him a voucher equal to 4/18th of a future round. He thought none of them applicable.

What has Mr. Forethat done to solve the problem, other than to open a thread on this forum and solicit help. There are entirely too many unanswered questions for anybody to provide Mr. Forethat with the answers he seems to be seeking.

I have previously stated the question he posed was somewhat silly considering he had already played 14 of the 18 holes. The post I made was deleted as part of it may have been off-topic, however, I had already responded to his question prior to your arrival on board.

I am certain my words will be parsed by either you or Mr. Forethat but, until some answers are provided and a little more detail is known, I cannot see that anybody can assist sorting out Mr. Forethat's dilemma.

In conclusion, I have considered your suggestion very thoroughly and have decided to ignore it. Thank you for providing it, though.

Mr forethat will I am sure be responding shortly, I am sure it will go some thing like this, where do I say the points you have raised, you are wrong but I don't think you will dispute it this will be followed by a laughing man on his back. lol

I will not be able to see forethat's reply as he is on my ignored list...

Let me ask what Mr. Forethat has done to recoup his lost four holes.

I am not trying to recoup our lost four holes. This should be obvious if you read the initial post.

Has he been back to the golf course to find out why the lights were turned out?

Ehh, no. We were informed at the time of the crime. This should be obvious if you read the initial post.

Has he been back to the golf course to find out what their policies are concerning rain checks?

Ehh, no. Since this isn't a case where a golfer wants to suspend playing due to rain it's not applicable. This should be obvious if you read the initial post.

Has he talked to anybody in a position of authority at the golf course to determine if the course had been declared unplayable at any time during his outing day?

Ehh, no. Since we were informed that he course was closed because they wanted to save electricity htere's no need to speculate in other reasons for the closure. This should be obvious if you read the initial post.

What are the posted hours of the golf course? What course was it and what time were the lights turned out?

You can tee off until 8PM. In this case they closed at ~8.15 PM. I think the golf club in question is pretty irrelevant.

Were Mr. Forethat and his playing partner using a golf cart? If not, the course management might not have even known there were any golfers remaining on the course. It was, after all, nighttime and raining.

We were using a golf cart. One each. Regardless of cart, since the manager has already informed us that the reason for the closure was to save electricity there's no point arguing this.

Mr. Forethat claims that some member of the course staff told him they wanted to close because there weren't that many players. Who was this staff person and what management position did he hold?

He was the course manager. I am not too sure about this though. I probably want to refer to him as the "shift manager" or similar.

I provided Mr. Forethat three rain check policies picked at random from the internet. Two of the three would not have given him a rain check at all and the third would have given him a voucher equal to 4/18th of a future round. He thought none of them applicable.

Ehh, no. Since this is not a case where a player wants to suspend play and get a refund. Actually, it's the opposite; we DIDN'T want to suspend play.

What has Mr. Forethat done to solve the problem, other than to open a thread on this forum and solicit help. There are entirely too many unanswered questions for anybody to provide Mr. Forethat with the answers he seems to be seeking.

I haven't solicited any "help". I asked a simple question: "Am i wrong when I feel this is equivalent to the Pattaya Jetski scam...?" This should be obvious if you read the initial post.

I am certain my words will be parsed by either you or Mr. Forethat but, until some answers are provided and a little more detail is known, I cannot see that anybody can assist sorting out Mr. Forethat's dilemma.

What appears to be the dilemma? After reading some of your previous posts it is clear that you have a peculiar way of interpreting words; from that perspective you may talk about antique grand fathers clocks. This appears to be a recurring problem when you debate. In this case, it appears it doesn't even help that I tell you explicitly that I am not interested in any help to get a refund or similar. This is, to say the least, most awkward - it is obvious that you lack the ability to follow agreed definitions and language in its entirety.

If we are talking about different things, we will never reach mutual understanding, it will just be a never ending confusion. Communication is key to progress, not only in Thailand. I am not saying that it's the definition itself that's important; we just need to agree on the interpretation of the conditions. You and I could, for instance, agree to call a movie ticket for a fat ugly prostitute wearing an undersized bunny costume, but I can guarantee that we'll get serious problems at the Paragon Cineplex box office.

The question, in this case, is whether I was wrong when I felt this is equivalent to the Pattaya Jetski scam. (as in "have a predefined plan to break an agreement in order to make money"). Again, this should be pretty obvious if you read the initial post, though I'm actually beginning to doubt you ever did. What YOU are talking about, is whether I should get a refund, HOW I should get that refund and finally what my options are in case I want to suspend play. I suggest you start a thread about this if you're interested, but as others and myself have highlighted, that's not the issue here.

Of course I am, but in this case the issue was whether this was comparable to the Pattaya Jetski Scam, and nothing else. This should be obvious if you read the initial post. Edited by Forethat

Rather than quote your entire response and waste even more band width, let me ask one more question and see if you will give us a straight answer.

If you weren't concerned about a rain check/refund, why did you decide to title this thread as follows...

"Rain-Check/Refund Or What....? Golf course management gone wrong...."

Because in case they had offered some sort of compensation the fraudulent behavior could have been dismissed. In case you didn't read the initial post my concern was regarding the intent. If the intent was to close and compensate by offering rain-checks or refunds to players it wouldn't have been a scam, would it...?

Tell you what. Why don't you go back to the golf course, see the Manager and tell him you want credit for four holes the next time you play evening golf. Be sure and explain everything as you have told it here and then come back and give us his response.

Let me bore you with a personal tale about what happened to me a few years ago. A friend was visiting me from Saudi Arabia and we had gone to Green Valley Rayong to play a morning round. We teed off uneventfully and proceeded on our round. When we arrived at the 6th hole, the old first hole by the driving range, we found a host of Koreans teeing off, flowing directly from the driving range,rather than returning to the new first tee and doing it properly. I would guess there were 30-40 Korean golfer's waiting to tee off, all of them refusing to let us proceed with our round.

After causing something of a minor international incident, we turned our carts around and headed for the clubhouse. Now I could have proceeded to get on the internet and complain about the scam being perpetrated on us by Green Valley but chose, instead, to talk to the golf course Manager and express my displeasure with their actions.

The Manager apologized for the interruption to our round and offered both of us rain checks for a full round,including cart. We felt this was satisfactory and left somewhat satisfied. We then went to Eastern Star and got in our 18 holes.

Did your golf course pull a scam on you? In my opinion, NO, they did not.

What did they have to gain except saving a few baht on the electric bill, and what did you really lose of any material monetary value? You really lost NOTHING of value. All you lost was the privilege of playing those four holes on that particular day.

You seem so concerned about their "intent" in turning off the lights. My guess would be they simply wanted to go home or go have a party somewhere. Again, talking to the Manager might resolve this issue in your mind.

As William Shakespeare might say...This is "much ado about nothing".

Chuckd - Thats a good example of a golf course admitting an issue and doing something about it - Although the issue shouldn't have happened in the first place, this is what I would call a good recovery and good customer service, guaranteed to secure your return.

However, if you had visited the manager and if his response was 'so what', that may place you in a more frustrating and similar position to Forethat, who while attempting to complete his round was simply treated with disregard.

I have received similar treatment on a golf course (Pheonix) the most frustrating part of this is that its always after you have paid your money.... Of course it is, you can then either lump it or walk away and loose your money. In this case Forethat was not given any choice - he was simply forced to stop playing after he had paid for a complete round.

Perhaps the course manager made a mistake and face prevented him from admitting it. But no one can argue that this is positive treatment from a golf course, and regardless of whether or not you like him, no one can argue that Forethat has not been treated unfairly.

Did the golf course pull a Scam on Forethat? No, I don't think so. Are they guilty of terrible customer service?, without doubt.

Why post about it on Thai Visa.com? That's what we do isn't it? after reading threads involving T.V. members experiences on other golf courses, I now know not to go to some of them. Including green valley rayong, where I've learnt from your post and if I were ever to make a booking I'd ask if they have any bus tours booked in. In fact I believe that's a good question to ask of any course when making a booking...

A couple of further comments.

1. What good is it to report an unfortunate incident if Mr. Forethat refuses to name the course, stating it is irrelevant? The only thing we know for certain is it is a lighted course in Bangkok.

2. Green Valley Rayong has a hotel built on the course which caters to the Korean invasion when it occurs. It would do no good to ask about a tour bus since many of them are staying there full time. Up to you about asking the other courses but I doubt any of them would be willing to tell you the truth if you asked.

I am really very cynical about golf course management in Thailand. I do not ever expect it to be congenial or, frankly, very helpful. They are going to do whatever they want to do and really don't care if you never come back to play their course. I certainly do not expect it to be Westernized to the extent of being polite and helpful at the same time.

My 30+ years in LOS have given me the experience to be cynical when it comes to customer service. I simply don't expect much and am, therefore, seldom disappointed.
