Samui Football GolfNorth Chaweng
Football Golf is an original and increasingly popular game created in Thailand at Samui Football Golf, and it’s becoming better known around the world. The idea is simple enough: it's a hybrid of football and golf in which players try to steer a football into the 18 holes in as few strokes as possible – using their feet of course.
