For those of you who are looking for a slightly more unique destination, we suggest a visit to the Red Mountain Golf Course which has been carved out of one of the old tin mines and offers players a truly remarkable venue in one of Phuket’s most historical place.
Located in Kathu district, not far from Patong Beach, sits this impressive mesa-style golf course with it’s rolling hills, granite rocks and red soil. It almost has a prehistoric feel to it. Red Mountain Golf Club is an 18 holes par 72 course at an astounding length of 6,781 yards. Designed to honour it’s natural landscape, the course uses its unique location to it’s advantage by incorporating the cliffs, lakes and forests in its hazards as well as a few man made bunkers to try to catch those wayward balls. Designed with four distinct tee boxes to accommodate every players skill set, the formidable course offers challenges at almost every hole including a 50 meters drop on the 17th hole. The entire course takes about four to five hours to complete, and refreshment kiosks are conveniently positioned at strategic points along the way.
The Red Mountain Golf Course club house is one of the course greatest feature. Situated at the top of a large hill and overlooking the ancient tin mine as well as two of the holes, the club house boasts a top-notch rental shop carrying high end equipment, both male and female locker rooms, cart rentals, a fully stocked pro-shop and the Red Mountain restaurant that serves both authentic Thai and Western dishes. Opening hours are from 6am until 7pm, and professional uniformed staff will greet you at the entrance and escort you to your tee box.
