Golf, Northeast Thailand and the Tourism Authority of Thailand

Khon Kaen now has 4, 18 hole golf courses in the area. There are more than 30 golf courses, mostly 9 hole in the region. Some are more popular and better maintained than others, which is why once again the folk at the Tourism Authority of Thailand continue to amaze me. Of all the courses in Isaan the only one that I find that they mention in their Application for smartphones is this one.
Unless it has been upgraded it is certainly not in the top of the choices in the region. Roi-et, Khon Kaen, Korat town Yasothon Ubon Ratchatani and Sakon Nakhon have 9 hole courses in better shape than this one.
They choose not to mention the beautiful 9 hole course on the bank of the Sirindhon reservoir in Ubon. And they do not even mention the EGAT 18 hole golf course at the Ubolrattana Reservoir in Khon Kaen.
Even though this app is free, you should be compensated for time wasted if you try to use it in Northeast Thailand

My map below will give you a better view of the golf situation in the region. It might be missing a couple courses I have not visited yet.
