When it comes to organizing a holiday, if you are a golf-lover, a destination with lots of golf courses is always at the top of the list. However, there are a few things to consider, such as the best location that also doubles as a great place to holiday, which makes Phuket the perfect place. There are a few things you have to remember and take into account when you are booking your Phuket golf holiday.
What location should I choose?
You need a location in Phuket that merges the best beaches, nightlife entertainment and restaurants, so you always have something to do when you are not golfing. The west coast of Phuket is where all the action takes place, with Patong Beach being the ultimate holiday-destination and the most popular in Phuket by a longshot with tourists.
Patong is home to one of the longest beaches on the island, the most vibrant and hedonistic nightlife and a choice of restaurants covering every cuisine style known to man. With Patong also being located on the central western coastline, it’s not too far away from any course on the island in relative terms.
If you are looking for a more chilled and laidback affair, we would recommend other West Coast destination such as Kata or Karon Beach to the south of Patong, or Kamala, Surin and Bang Tao to the north. If you are looking to really catapult yourself into the tranquility, locations such as Rawai and Nai Harn on the southernmost tip of the island are excellent choices.
Which courses should I play?
Choosing which courses you should play on is really down to what you are looking for from your Phuket golf holiday. If you are a good player or want to experience the best Championship courses the island has to offer, Red Mountain GC in Kathu, or the famous Canyon Course at Blue Canyon Country Club are the two best courses. For a more value-for-money choice, Phuket Country Club, Loch Palm, Mission Hills GC and Laguna Phuket GC are perfect.
What else is there to do on Phuket?
When you are not golfing, Phuket has so many things to see and do that you will never get bored. Maybe you fancy a jungle trek atop an elephant, or maybe a spot of scuba diving in and around some of the best dive locations in the world. With some of the best beaches in Asia, and beautiful mountain scenery, alongside the nightlife and dining scene that the island is famous for, there are lots of things to do on the island, whether you are travelling with friends or even the family.
