If you have been playing golf for just a short time period but are desperate to partake in a golf holiday, don’t worry, because Phuket is a great golf holiday destination for novices and beginners to the game. Although the island’s golf scene is usually dominated by the championship courses at Blue Canyon and Red Mountain, we still have some great courses for those of you starting on your golfing path.
Beginner’s golf in Phuket
If you are looking to book a golf holiday but are quite new to the game, you don’t have to wait until your skills improve as Phuket is home to some of the most forgiving courses. Phunaka GC is a 9-hole course in Chalong, Phuket, which is also the biggest and best golf academy on the island, with lots of PGA coaches, driving, putting and practice areas, perfect to have a few lessons, practice or to play a round of golf on a beginner’s course.
If you are looking for something a bit more challenging than Phunaka to try out your new-found golf skills, Phuket Country Club in Kathu is just the ticket. Known for its beautiful conditions, wide fairways and friendly staff, this course is a great choice. Phuket CC is perfect for beginners to the game with such a golfer-friendly atmosphere and layout.
When you are feeling a bit more confident in your abilities, Loch Palm GC in Kathu is a great introduction to tropical golf. This course has lots of wide fairways, but there are also many water hazards for you to tackle. Loch Palm is easily one of the best value for money courses in Phuket, and a step-up in difficulty from Phunaka and Phuket Country Club.
