PHUKET COUNTRY CLUB
PHUKET COUNTRY CLUB
Phuket Country Club, founded in 1989, is the first and one of the best golf clubs built in Phuket. It is located on the territory of the former canyon for the extraction of tin. The stunning beauty and elegance of the course, as well as the typical Thai charm and hospitality, will make your game here a joyful and memorable experience.
The club has hosted a large number of prestigious tournaments. Such as Ladies Kosaido Thailand Open 1992, Prince Bernard Cup, Thai Senior PGA Challenge2002, Phuket Thailand Ladies Masters 2005 & Phuket Asian Senior Masters 2006 and 2008, and 1st-TGA Junior Golf Thailand Regional Championship Challenge 2010.
The club is located in the central area of the island called Kathu, a 30-minute drive from Phuket Town and a 25-minute drive from Patong Beach.
This is a 27-hole golf course, which includes: Old Course - an interesting course with 18 holes and Country Club Course - 9 championship holes.
18 hole course, 6483 yards, par 72.
Hole #10, 557 yards, par 5, is one of the most unusual holes you'll ever come across. This is a right dogleg that snakes around a huge lake and can be passed with one hit!!! You need to aim 90 degrees right of the fairway and be able to swing 240 yards over the water, but overall the course is very friendly.
The course is located in a valley, fairways meander over hills and limestone cliffs. You will pass 3 types of terrain - 6 holes in the rolling hills, 6 holes in the plains and 6 holes in the forest. Errors in strikes are not too punishable. Just stay away from deep bunkers guarding strategic greens. Although the course is great for high handicappers, low handicap players find it quite interesting.
Country Club Course
A challenging 3,375-yard par 36, 9-hole narrow championship course, especially suited to low handicap players. The picturesque beauty of the landscape and layout softens the difficulty of the field somewhat but still beware of inaccurate shots. All are penalized either by hitting the water or out of bounds.
A distinctive feature of the field is that the game takes 90% of the time through the water. Black swans glide through the water lilies, oblivious to your slices.
Tip: High handicap players, don't forget to buy a few dozen used balls from the Pro Shop before you start playing! You may need a lot of them!
