Thailand’s golf quarantine was created in line with the government’s strict COVID-19 prevention and control measures that required golfers to follow a set of Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) from the Thai Department of Health Service Support. These are supervised by a golf course COVID-19 Commander, supported by medical staff from a partner hospital who are on standby 24/7.

Golfers must remain in their rooms for the first three days until they receive their first COVID-19 RT-PCR and Coronavirus Antibody tests. Provided that the test results come out negative, quarantined golfers will be allowed to play golf from Day 4, but only within their own group, as well as use resort facilities; such as, fitness centre, spa, and swimming pool as per the quarantine rules while also following the government COVID-19 prevention and control measures.

In addition, when playing, quarantined golfers are responsible for their own golf equipment. A course Marshall is responsible for making sure all maintain a two-metre social distancing radius when playing.

In the event of any SOP violations, the course COVID-19 Commander is empowered to end all golf quarantine activities and report rule breakers to the Thai authorities.

There are also requirements for golf quarantine groups wishing to enter Thailand. To qualify, they must be from a low- or medium-risk country and make all arrangements in advance. These include obtaining a Certificate of Entry (CoE) from an overseas Thai embassy or consulate and a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test result 72 hours before departure. After arrival in Thailand, golfers must take three additional COVID-19 RT-PCR tests (Days 3, 9, and 13), and follow all SOP rules.

There are currently five golf clubs in Thailand that are government certified to host golf quarantine. These include the Artitaya Golf and Resort in Nakhon Nayok (108-rooms) where the first group stayed, Sawang Resort and Golf Club in Phetchaburi (50 rooms) and three in Kanchanaburi: Mida Golf Club (79-rooms), Evergreen Hills Golf Club and Resort (100 rooms) and Blue Star Golf Course (57 rooms).
