Best Golf Courses in Phuket - Tee off in scenic settings amidst the tropical island paradise

The lively tourist destination in the tropical Andaman, Phuket is an island that put itself on the tourism map thanks to its gorgeous beaches. Venture inland from its golden sands and you will be treated by a host of lesser-known, breathtaking golf courses, affording the golfing of your life.

Canyon Course, Blue Canyon Country Club - The home to one of the "Top 500 Best Holes in The World"

When you go golfing in the Canyon Course in Blue Canyon Country Club, you are not just playing golf at a regular golf course. It is a world championship golf course that played host to several prominent international tournaments in the history of golf, such as the major-league 1998 Johnnie Walker Classic, which was won by none other than the legendary Tiger Woods. The world-renowned course is also known to have the best layout of all courses in Phuket and is home to one of the "Top 500 Best Holes in The World".

Red Mountain Golf Club - Presumably the best golf course in all of Phuket

Just as many other golf courses in Phuket, Red Mountain Golf club also sits on a former tin mine. The scenic golf course gets its name from the surrounding red rock mountains, which sets a one-of-a-kind setting for the game as well as a stunning backdrop for your "golfing in Phuket" Instagram post. It is regarded by many as the best golf course in Phuket, and without a doubt, the most spectacular as well.

Laguna Phuket Golf Club - Tee off in the resort-style golf course

The recently remodelled and renovated Laguna Phuket Golf Club stands out among the rest of the golf courses on the island, as one of the few, and probably the best resort-style golf course in all of Phuket. It is certainly one of the best courses the average golfer can visit to spend a fantastic day teeing away. The convenient location of the sprawling golf course makes for easy transportation for those staying at any of the luxury hotels in Phuket, including the likes of Anantara Layan Phuket Resort.

Loch Palm Golf Club - A favourite among locals and tourists alike

The 18-hole, par-72 course spanning across 160 hectares – Loch Palm Golf Club is popular as a course that guarantees a wonderful time for players of all skill levels, from beginners to intermediates and seasoned golfers. The wide array of playing conditions that welcome all levels of golfers, and the tranquil, relaxing atmosphere have made the waterfront golf course one of the favourite golfing spots among many locals and tourists alike.

Lakes Course, Blue Canyon Country Club - The water-challenged golf course

While not as popular as the previously mentioned Canyon Course in the Blue Canyon Country Club, the sister Lakes Course is also just as rewarding and challenging, and definitely worth your while. Just as the name gives it away, golfing in the Lakes Course is heavily challenged by water, that 17 of its 18-hole course is impacted by semi-natural water features.
