I know from personal experience that when we go on holiday, in many cases we arrive at our destination and then decide what we want to do over our holiday period. Many people come to Phuket and then decide on the spur of the moment that they want to play golf. We have all been there and done that. If you are staying in one of Phuket’s major tourism areas on the West Coast and fancy a game of golf in the spur of the moment, we can organize all your golf needs and offer the below advice.
Which Phuket Golf Courses to play?
The first thing you need to do is to decide which courses you want to play while you are here in Phuket. If you are holidaying in one of the island’s main tourism destinations such Patong, Kata, Karon and Kamala, you can be on the golf course within an hour with phukegolf.net. Kathu is a small town located just 7km from Patong and is home to 3 golf courses: Phuket Country Club, Loch Palm Golf Club and Red Mountain Golf Club. Kathu is sat amidst a valley surrounded by luscious and verdant jungle-laden mountains, which creates stunning backdrops and some of the most scenic golf course terrain on the island.
Loch Palm and Phuket Country Club are mid-level courses in terms of standard and pricing, while Red Mountain is one of the most noted Championship courses in Thailand.

I don’t have any equipment!
Deciding to play golf on holiday without prior planning can create a few problems… you don’t have any equipment. All Phuket courses have golf clubs and golf shoes available to rent, so you can either inform us of what you need and we can sort the rest, or you can tell the reception at the course when you get to the club. It really is that easy!
