“The oldest course on Phuket Island still retains much of its charm”
The first Championship course to ever be built on Phuket Island, the Phuket Country Club is in the centre of Phuket and is very easy to travel to, especially as it is near the three beaches of Karon, Patong and Kata. This course is aimed at seasoned golfers who want to improve their game – novice golfers have found it difficult whereas experienced golfers will more than likely find ways to card a low score. Although its clubhouse could benefit from being renovated, it is still an attractive building which offers golfers the opportunity to unwind before or after their round, especially as it has a restaurant and a tennis court.
Thailand Golf Tours brings visitors from all over the world to enjoy the incredible course at the Phuket Country Club and can easily organise your visit. Thailand Golf Tours works with individual and group travellers to plan tours to Thailand’s many golf courses; as part of a visit to Thailand or as the basis for an entire holiday in Thailand focused on golf. With excellent local contacts and wealth of local knowledge, Thailand Golf Tours are able to ensure the golf break or holiday that suits your skills, interest, budget and time requirements.
The Phuket Country Club, which can either be a par 72 or 36, is 6484/7150 yards long and has 27 holes, was designed by Dr. Sukitti Klangvisai who is responsible for many other courses in Asia. Set in a valley and with three different environments throughout the course, which include six holes in undulating hills, the other nine holes at this course are perfect for those who want to play a shorter round. As it is now a par 36, golfers of all abilities will want to try this nine hole course. The original 18 holes each have their own merits, in particular its par 5 which is a whopping 557 yards long. With much to recommend this course, it doesn’t take long to travel there from the three aforementioned beaches.
