Blue Canyon Country Club, Canyon Course Description:
(site of Tiger Woods' 1998 Asian victory and host of 2007 Johnnie Walker)

Blue Canyon Country Club’s Canyon Course was the original 18 hole layout and leaped to fame when it was selected as the venue for the 1994 Johnnie Walker Classic. Since then the same tournament has returned 2 times with Tiger Woods winning in 1998.  Blue Canyon is recognized as a world championship golf course and constantly ranks as one of Thailand's best golf courses.

The course is set in an abandoned tin mine and may of the old strip mines characteristics are evident throughout the course. Streams filled with rust-colored water, canyons with sheer cliffs exposing red and white tin ore laden rock, and tailings from old mining operations are a few of the many throw backs to days of time gone by.

The front nice plays up and through palm-oil tree lined fairways. The back nine gets even better with holes 11-15 and probably the best five stretch in Thailand, if not all Asia. These five memorable golf holes will surely be the center of after round discussions.

The Par 5 11th is a difficult 600 yard par 5 with water crossing the fairway on the first shot and water guarding the green left and right on the third shot. A penalty-free bogey is a good score here. The famous Par 4 13th over a huge canyon tempts the daredevil in every golfer, and the following Par 3 14th from an elevated tee to an island green is one of the most beautiful, while also challenging par 3's for all players who tee it up and go for it. There is no bail out area and unless you’ve played the course on several occasions, trusting you’ve got the right club and gauging the wind effects is difficult. Watery, not happy, endings are more typical for most visiting Phuket golfers.

The 17th is also one of the most intimidating Par 3’s you’ll find anywhere, and even from the white tees, for most players it’s a long iron or fairway wood to a partially hidden green that is tucked behind the canyon on the right.

Blue Canyon has a large club house, with 3 restaurants, well-stocked pro shop, lockers and shower facilities, massage and spa. In its glory days of the 90’s it set the standard for golf club excellence. However, nowadays the whole facility is a bit tired and in need of a facelift and renovation. The on-site golf resort is best skipped as most Phuket golf visitors prefer to stay closer to one of the main centers or at least at one of the luxury resorts on the nearby Mai Khao Beach.

Blue Canyon Country Club, Canyon Course Reviews & Comments

This course is a MUST if you are in Phuket, along with Red Mountain. If you ever want to play a course where Tiger has been AND played then Blue Canyon is your course.

The course management and maintenance is of absolute high standard. Caddies are well trained and the course is also well marshaled.

We had a great time there last month and enjoyed the beer at the clubhouse with stunning view over the course after our round.

What a good course. Had a couple of rounds here, fairways and greens are as good as anywhere i have played in Thailand. Friendly staff and good caddie as well who was a great help on the first round.

This is a tough track and a great test of your golf game. Come here to enjoy 2 great golf holes, the 13th and 14th, and play the best par 3 in Asia according to Fred Couples - the 17th. But dont expect to shoot a score, its TOUGH!

A 'must do' golf course if you are anywhere near Phuket. Two great courses and a great test of golf. Practise your putting though! Fabulous club hose, massage, jacuzzi and sauna's in changing rooms. A must do.
