I know we are predominantly a Phuket golf tour website, but sometimes things non-Phuket related are too great to overlook. We have recently secured a deal with the Santiburi Country Club, which is the only full 18-hole course on Koh Samui Island, and not only that, it?s one of the best courses in Thailand to boot. If you fancy something a little different for the last few days of your holiday, a visit to Koh Samui with a round of golf at Santiburi should be at the top of your priority list.
Situated on the northern coast of the island, Santiburi GC sits within a beautiful location that seamlessly blends rolling valleys, waterfalls, streams, mountains and coconut plantations into a special golf experience. Some of the views from the elevated tees look out towards Maenam Beach and the Gulf of Thailand and Koh Phangan in the distance.
Weaving your way through the mountainous terrain can be a challenge, especially for high-handicappers; however, this is a round of golf you will never forget. The course has received championship status, hosting events on the Asian Tour such as the Bangkok Airways Open and The Queen?s Cup.
With high quality materials used for the course, such as Tifeagle grass for the greens and Bermuda grass on the fairways, as long as you keep the ball straight, the hitting surfaces are very consistent.
The level of the onsite facilities matches the standard of the course, such as a restaurant with international dishes, classy changing rooms, a fully-equipped pro shop, and a terrace that overlooks the beauty of the course.
