CHIANGMAI EXPAT GOLFERS CLUB STARTED IN 2002:
Mark & Tama's wife Sally inspecting the Green Valley Club to ask them for Club appearance fees???
back in the old days SPECIAL THANKS:
Lastly I must commend Ric Cameron for all he did as he is and still remains one of the most honest guys I have ever worked and been acquainted with. It was Ric who kept the club alive in spite of him overworked with the Visas but of course today 2020 we now have many new members and committee who keep the name going.
You can read more on Garry Walkers [Aus] website. Gary has carried on to do a lot of promoting
the Golfers club and achieved a wonderful job in doing so.

PLEASE NOTE THIS IS JUST HISTORY OF THE CHIANGMAI GOLFERS CLUB &
COSTS ETC HAVE CHANGED IN 2013:
Below is the old setup from 2002 which started the Chiangmai Golfers Club in the small Aussie Cafe run by Mark Ellenden, Ric Cameron from Aus and Tama Ruru from NZ and joined later by Jim from Australia.
As it got off the ground it moved from the Aussie Cafe to Phil Williams Restaurant in the old city on Ratchamanka Rd . We started with Visa runs to Mae Sai then to get expats and visitors to join in recreational Golf and it worked well. Hats off to Ric Cameron and Mark for taking control as we started with hiring a Van then Ric bought a VW combi with TV etc for a few months and Tama did the advertising in the Chiangmai Trader News. We all put in to make this work and it did work with the team. The VW was slow up the hills and ended up giving it back to the Thai owner who luckily was a good friend of ours and refunded the money--not the best wagon to use on the Mae Sai run. Ric then went ahead and bought a good Toyota Hiace then after a time had Tic a Thai man drive the visa runs and take over the driving for Ric. It was a lot of fun in those days but the Van also had problems as Tic drove over a hill on the way to Mae Sai one day and drove into the back of a car stationary in the middle of the road--not his fault but the dopey driver parking in the middle of the road? The odd other problem like exhaust etc we managed to get the Club rolling & it was Ric who took over the reins and made it work. Ric however was really into his Visa Runs as this took most of his time & it the Golf was really Mark's. It was also hilarious at times with balls going in all sorts of directions including one day when Mark Ellenden managed to lob a ball into a shop outside the Gymkhana club knocking over 2 glasses on the counter?? Then we had a few golfers who managed to lose more balls than I can name. Ron Tyre from the Uk had the odd trouble with hitting the divits rather than the ball but plenty of antics as we were all "new" playing golf in the 40 degree temps at times that made even the toughest foreign temperatures rise???.The mix of nationalities made it even more comical but of course this was a Social Club and thats part of the fun. Lucky there were pit stops at various holes along the way and one could buy a beer to cool off but everyone had their moments and of course after the games it got even merrier. This is the beauty about living in the "land of smiles" as we did just that after each game.
Mark and Tay eventually returned to Darwin. The Aussie Cafe changed hands to Ray Symonds from West Aus a non golfer and Ric went back to Brisbane for work & others got into hearing visa runs and did the same. Tama headed back to the farm in NZ but we still keep in touch. In the meantime the Club changed its name to the Chiangmai Social Golfers Club as many thought we were a golf course & not to be confused. Ric is the only original left who frequents back and forth as Tama spends more time in Bangkok & NZ now but I believe Mark and Tay were heading back maybe to Buriram where Tay lives and a new franchise to the Chiangmai club might start up with Mark again as he was a good organiser??
Roger Mack USA still part of the Club and in front Ron Tyre from the UK. Ron used to get around in a sidecar with his wife in an armchair?? only in the land of smiles and was the ultimate character but nice guy. He passed away in ChiangMai after a fight with cancer but well remembered
