The Courses

Loch Palm Golf Club

(a local long-time favorite for its unique, fun & fair design)

Loch Palm Golf Club Loch Palm is one of the most enjoyable and consistent Phuket golf courses.  Nestling beneath a panoramic range of jungle-clad hills, Loch Palm is easy going although still capable of throwing down many challenges and giving any Phuket golfer a thorough workout. As the club’s name suggests, palm trees are liberally dotted around this parkland layout, although never too densely.

Phuket Country Club

(island’s oldest course; challenging and scenic)

Phuket Country Club Phuket Country Club’s Old Course was the first championship standard 18-hole golf course built on Phuket Island. It is located almost in the center of Phuket and can easily be reached from any of the main beach and hotel areas.

Laguna Phuket Golf Club

(tree lined parkland style Max Wexler course, host of Thailand Open)

Laguna Phuket Golf Club (Banyan Tree) Phuket Laguna is a resort golf course with pleasant breezes from the Andaman  Sea. It is not too demanding and reflects the natural beauty and tropical surroundings of Bang Tao Bay.

Blue Canyon Country Club, Lakes Course

(well maintained, scenic and challenging course enjoyable by all)

Blue Canyon Country Club, Lakes Course The Blue Canyon Lakes golf course is the 2nd golf course at Blue Canyon Country Club. The hole routing makes good use of meandering creeks and water-filled canyons created by abandoned open cast tin mining with natural land flow left relatively unchanged from the original jungle contours.

Red Mountain Golf Club

(Phuket’s most exciting course; dramatic views and great golf)

Red Mountain Golf Club It’s not difficult to see why this Phuket golf course was named Red Mountain. It is harder, however, to imagine how such a dramatically undulating landscape, where soft red rock and dense jungle were the principal ingredients, could be transformed into a challenging, yet playable layout.
