Golf in Phuket

by admin

Until you have golfed here, you really cannot appreciate just how beautiful the natural surroundings and man-made landscaping really are. Not to mention, there is an endless supply of female caddies here and most courses provide them free with a green fee and yes, they actually can help recommend a club for you!

Laguna Phuket Golf Club

Designed by Max Wexter, Laguna Phuket Golf Club is definitely the place to go to golf in Phuket! The place is unparalleled with water on 14 out of 18 holes. The greens are complimented by a woodland setting, mature trees and enough strategically placed hazards to keep the game interesting. Unlike a lot of other courses in Thailand, this one was made for the average player to be able to get through without losing dignity. The club even houses practice bunkers, chipping areas, putting greens, video analysis, tennis courts and a five-star cafe.

Mission Hills Golf Club

You better be ready for a challenge as well as a few surprises if you’re going to golf this course designed by Jack Nicklaus. The ocean provides cool breezes and the course is housed among mangroves that are environmentally-friendly and carved from rubber plantations. Here you will receive a caddy and a golf cart with your green fees and if you play at lunch, the girls almost always deliver a round of snacks to everyone.

Phuket Country Club

This is an older course that only has water on 7 out of 18 holes but with the 54 bunkers, you will find it unusual and challenging. Phuket Country Club is not overly done up with excessive landscaping but it has a lot of natural beauty that seems to soothe away the pain of a bad score.

Loch Palm Golf Club

This is a very challenging place to play Golf in Phuket yet it’s fair enough to get though and not have to hide your score card. The background is what is most distracting yet appealing about this course. Being surrounded by forest and jungle always has you wondering what kind of exotic animal might come passing through. You will enjoy water on 13 holes along with 67 bunkers! This is not a course for the novice golfer!
