Wilding Golf – Bangkok ThailandLast Updated:Last Updated: March 16, 2017
Wilding Golf is one of those stories you hate to read about. Somewhat successful business, business grows to fast with no proven systems or management structure, business goes bankrupt. Yes, we’ve all heard these stories before but with Wilding Golf it happened much quicker than for most unsuccessful businesses. Started by a relatively unknown golf profession who bounced around from Malaysia to Singapore and eventually landed in Bangkok, Wilding Golf had several locations in prominent areas in Bangkok. Long story short the company never found a profitable formula and many students complained of not improving under the “Wilding” teaching method. The company was eventually liquidated in Bankruptcy proceedings. Their most successful location at the Marriott Hotel on Soi 24 was purchased out of bankruptcy by an investment group and remodeled and reopened in 2013 as Xcite Golf, www.xcitegolf.com. Xcite seems to have made significant improvements given their success and popularity in the market now. Other Wilding Golf locations in Asoke, Siam, and Thong Lor were all closed and never reopened.
