Golf Courses Damaged By Flooding...?

Recommended Posts

I wonder what kind of damage the flooding in northern BKK will do to the many golf courses? For instance, there are a couple in Rangsit (Pinehurst etc.) and a few more in Pathum Thani (Bangkok Golf Club, Riverdale etc.). A few others are in the flooded areas as well (Alpine, Krung Kavee, Tanya Tanee, Lamlukka etc.) Is anyone updated on how these courses have been affected by the flooding so far?

Got 2 brothers in Texas who are course superintendents. Both of their courses are built in flood planes because that's all they can use that land for. They flood regularly (one of them with salt water from hurricanes). They come back in a few days to a few weeks after the water recedes. They take some work and sometimes have to rope off trouble spots, but "rounds" is their mantra.

That is simply disturbing to see. I feel so sorry for these golf clubs. Oh dear...

Royal Gems Golf City (Rangsit) is flooded. The dykes broke last night at 12:30am and was completely flooded by 2:30am.

Royal Gems (Salaya) has evacuated entire property and all electric and water have been cut off.

Rajapruek is closed until further notice, but I think that is an access issue rather than flooding at this point.
