  Don Meuang Airfield Golf Course (Kantarat)

 

Thailand

Don Meuang Airport (DMK) in Bangkok (fig.) has two airstrips: the one on the right used by the Royal Thai Air Force, the one on the left for civil aviation. Uniquely, these military and civilian airstrips are divided by a 18 holes golf course, known as Kantarat.

 

Though situated in a secured area and in a way —at least in part— on military domain, beside military personnel also civilians are welcomed here to play golf amidst the continues flow of air traffic and to the amazement of the many often flabbergasted passengers that land and take off from this airport, especially those who are confronted with this incongruous golf course for the first time.
