Although you will find Phuket golf courses across every region on the island, there is one place that is the spiritual home of Phuket Golf ? Kathu. Situated less than a 10-minute drive from Phuket?s number one tourist destination, Patong, Kathu is centrally located between Phuket Town and Patong. Kathu is home to three of the island?s most stunning and popular golf clubs ? Phuket Country Club, Loch Palm Golf Club and the Red Mountain Golf Club.
There isn?t a more densely populated golf destination like Kathu anywhere else in Thailand. The best thing about the three above mentioned golf courses is they are all top quality, exceptionally manicured and benefit from the most scenic backdrops imaginable.
Kathu is a place where lots of expatriates live, due to its close proximity to golf courses, Patong and the commercial park near Phuket Town where you will find a vast choice of supermarkets and shopping malls that include Central Festival, Big C and Tesco Lotus.
Known as the most popular tourist destination in Phuket, Patong, just a 10-minute drive from Kathu, has everything you could possibly imagine from a world-class resort. With more bars and restaurants than the rest of the island combined, and with shopping centers such as Jungceylon, being such a close distance from Kathu, you get the best of both worlds.
Loch Palm GC is one the best courses in Phuket, known for its luscious palm trees and mountainous backdrops; this 18-hole course is simply stunning. Just a short distance from Loch Palm, you will find what is arguably the island?s best course, Red Mountain GC, built on an old tin mine and famous for its elevated and mountainous terrain. Phuket Country Club, I would say, is the most forgiving course in Kathu and definitely one geared towards golfers of all handicaps.
As you can see, Kathu is definitely the epicenter for Phuket golf, situated in the heart of the island making it easy to visit the four corners of Phuket in total convenience. Please click here to see all our Phuket Golf courses
