It’s no secret that Phuket prides itself on its spectacular golfing facilities and country clubs. With beautiful lakes, rolling hills and breathtaking mountain scenery, it’s no wonder golfers from all over the world travel to our gorgeous island to play at one of our prestigious courses. While there are quite a few intriguing and daunting places to play 18 holes, Phuket Country Club is the only one with the allure of two courses that both beginners and professionals will enjoy.
Located in the center of Phuket, just between the business park and the road to Patong, sits this unique two courses golf club. Set in a stunning valley with rolling hills, luscious forestry and picturesque countryside, Phuket Country Club offers its clients their choice of a laid back 18 holes par 72 or a more challenging 9 holes low par course, both offering stunning views as well as a series of tricky bunkers and hazards.
The 18 holes course, or the “old course” as it is known, is a demanding par 72 course that winds around the hills with 54 bunkers and water hazards coming into play at 7 of the holes. Separated into three different terrains there are six holes with fairways on the undulating hills, six that run through perfectly manicured forestry and six that are on level ground. One of the most notable feature of the so called “old course” is that of the 10th hole: although it is a long 557 yards par 5 and a unique dogleg right that wraps itself all the way around the lake, many players will be tempt to go for it, from the tee box all the way across the lake, in the hope to reach the green and get this most elusive hole in one!
The 9 holes course, or “country club” course, is the newer of the two. This 9 holes par 37 course is an astounding 3,575 yards long and gets 27 taxing bunkers into your way as well as water hazards coming into play for 80% of the holes. There are 5 different teeing stations at each hole but, with the amount of water hazards, it is needless to say that those with high handicaps may want to purchase a few extra balls from the pro-shop, in case of wayward shots. Luckily the striking scenery and tranquility of the course help to ease tension from the daunting game ahead.
Phuket Country Club offers golfers two club houses to relax after or before their games: the old course club house is located on the same ground as the golf course itself and sits just beside the 18th hole; the 9 hole course club house is located across the road from the old course just beside the golf course. Both have golf pro-shops, reasonable spaced locker rooms, dining facilities, caddies, professional coaches as well as pools (though the pool at the 9 hole club house is the much larger of the two at 25 meters). The two courses share a 52 bay practice range with both chipping and putting areas, saunas, games rooms, tennis courts and a convention center which can be rented out.
