Red Mountain Golf Club Phuket

There are long par 4’s stretching up to 470 yards for the long hitters, drivable par 4’s with the chance of a birdie and the signature 9th hole is a dramatic par 3 with a 50m drop from tee to green. Each hole presents a different challenge with a variety of options, rewarding those with a tactical approach to their game and the measured skill to see it safely to the green. An exciting variety of green play also presents itself and with the newest, shade-tolerant Bermuda Hybrid grasses, putting surfaces remain fast and true year round.

Loch Palm Golf Club Phuket

The front nine holes meander alongside the signature feature of this course, the Crystal Lake, before taking you up into the forested hills for the back nine. With literally thousands of palm trees lining the fairways and a cool breeze washing over you from the Crystal Lake, the atmosphere is tranquil and serene, despite the numerous hazards and challenging greens. Fairway landing areas are fairly generous but the tightly routed layout requires you to keep firm control of your game with wayward shots readily punished by strategically placed bunkers.

Blue Canyon Country Club (Canyon Course)

The Canyon Course is not for the feint hearted, challenging the best of players as it flows effortlessly through the dramatic nature of Phuket’s tin-mining past. It features a demanding combination of narrow tree-lined fairways and challenging dog-legs requiring accurate tee shots and precision play. With 80 bunkers, water at 14 of its holes, tight landing areas with slick Bermuda Tifdwarf greens, this course demands your best play throughout.
