The western world, which covers Europe and the Americas, enjoys its summer season from mid-May to early-September, and is a time when the schools close down for 6 or 7 weeks. This time of the year is usually when Europeans and Americans, not forgetting the Canadians of course, like to book their summer holidays. If you are an avid golfer, you will no doubt be looking for a destination that offers beaches, nightlife, lots of things to see and do, and golf courses for your summer vacation.
If you are now thinking about booking your summer holidays, why not visit Phuket? As you may or may not know, Phuket has some of the best beaches in the world, and with tourism areas such as Patong, Karon, Kata, Surin and Kamala, you will find the dreamiest stretches of sand, lots of quality international restaurants and a great selection of nightlife options.
Whether you are holidaying alone, with friends or with the family, there is something for everyone in Phuket.
When it comes to golf holiday destinations, nowhere else manages to merge such amazing holiday amenities and climate with world-class golf courses quite like Phuket Island. With championship level courses such as Red Mountain GC in Kathu and the world-famous Canyon course at Blue Canyon, the level of excellence is self-evident.
If you are more of a novice and look for great value for money from your golf, Phuket Country Club and Loch Palm GC will impress.
The best thing about holidaying in Phuket between May and September is the island is at its less crowded in terms of tourism influx, although the humidity is higher at this time of the year.
