Playing Golf in Thailand can be dangerous.

Played Golf yesterday at Pheonix Golf course in Pattaya.On the last hole my ball ended up off the fairway and landed in a clump of trees following my drive. I took aim and fired with my pitching wedge, hitting one of the trees and all of a sudden I felt sharp stings on my head and back. Unknown to me there was a wasps nest in the tree and I was soon being chased by angry wasps. Thai wasps are about 3 times the size of European wasps and their stings hurt like hell!

      Hi AH yes we often see snakes and large monitor lizards on some of the course, but they generally move away when we approach. The wasps and bees are s different story.
