The Phuket golf scene enjoys a nice mix of golf courses of all levels, providing something for everyone, from beginner and novice to a low-handicapper. When referring to golf in Phuket, the first name that comes up is Blue Canyon Country Club. Long regarded as one of the best golf clubs in Asia, world-class golf is alive and well in Phuket.
When you want to play championship golf in Phuket at one of the most highly-regarded golf clubs in Thailand, not many can match Blue Canyon Country Club. There are two 18-hole courses at the club: most notably the “Canyon Course” and its sister, the “Lakes course”. Both enjoy perfectly manicured conditions amidst one of the finest clubs in Asia.
As both courses are positioned side-by-side, you can take advantage of the upscale onsite facilities such as a stylish clubhouse, swimming pool, onsite spa, an international restaurant and even some high-quality accommodation choices at their onsite Golfer’s Spa Lodge.
Blue Canyon Country Club really does have everything you need for a 5-star round of golf with world-class golf course conditions, a famous reputation and top notch onsite facilities.
Phuket golf – The Canyon Course
Known as a former host of the Johnnie Walker Classic, the likes of Tiger Woods, Greg Norman, Fred Couples, Ernie Els and many more world golfing greats have graced the Canyon Course. Meandering its way through beautiful tropical terrain and a massive gorge/canyon that is home to the famous ‘canyon holes’ on the 17th and 4th holes, this 72-par course is set over 7,179 yards from the back tees, making it very lengthy indeed. Although from the blue tees, the yardage is 6,664.
Please note: The Canyon course has historically been a walking course, however, there are now a few options for golf carts although you will have to give the course 3 days’ notice.

Phuket Golf – The Lakes Course
Although the Lakes Course is not quite on the same level as its brother, this is still a high quality golf course by anyone’s standards. This tropical woodland course, as the name suggests, weaves its way through not only tropical jungle terrain, but also around some big lakes and water hazards. In fact, 17 out of the 18 holes have water features, so make sure you are hitting the ball straight.
The course is 72-par, with 5 different sets of tee off locations that give the holes a different look every time. For more info regarding the Lakes Course, please click here.
If you are interested to play both courses at Blue Canyon, we have a 2-night Blue Canyon golf package that combines rounds of golf at both courses with accommodation at the onsite Golfer’s Spa Lodge, which you can see by clicking here.
