Mission Hills Phuket Golf Resort Description:
(picturesque Nicklaus design on the Andaman Sea)

If you are looking for a sea facing picture postcard golf course to play while in Phuket, the Jack Nicklaus designed course at Mission Hills Golf Resort in Phuket is the one to play. The golf course sits among mangrove forests on the scenic north-east coast of Phuket. The course has incredible ocean views from almost every hole and even includes several ocean holes playing out over the Andaman Sea like you sometimes see on the televised PGA tournaments.

Large white sand beach bunkers contrast with the translucent blue hues of the ocean waters and the vibrant greens of the Bermuda grass on the fairways and Paspalum Sea Isle 2000 grass on the putting surfaces. The ocean views come at a price, as water comes in to play on seven holes and the prevailing sea breezes make play at certain times of the day very tricky.

Jack Nicklaus designed some distinguishing features at Mission Hills Phuket. The top holes include the par-5 2nd hole requires two well-placed shots to setup a reasonable third shot into the island green. Next is the 4th which is the first of the ocean holes, and a medium-length par-3 with spectacular views across the sea. The putting surface is an island of grass in a sea of white sand.

The par-4, 5th hole plays to an island green from an island tee. A huge sandy waste near the beach with a strong elevation change that runs through the middle of the fairway also adds to the excitement of the hole.

The signature 12th hole and index 1 is the longest par-4 on the golf course, measuring 481 yards from the black tees. To reach the green in regulation and make par, two long straight hits are required, or an accurate one-chip and one-putt for a shorter hitter. The tee shot needs to carry well over 250 yards from the black tees, and land on the left hand side of the fairway. This will give the shortest and best angle in to a well-guarded green.

The difficult green is protected by a lake down the right hand side and a deep hollow to the left, penalizing those bailing out to stay away from the water. If you are fortunate to land your second shot safely on the green, or close by, you should walk away happy with a par, or even a respectable bogey. Whatever the outcome, take your time on this most difficult hole and appreciate the breathtaking ocean view by the green and panoramic mountain peaks in the distance.

Mission Hills is kept in reasonable playing conditions. Fairways and greens are always being improved so check with us for exact conditions. Individual golf carts are compulsory even though the course is relatively flat and an easy walk. 

Service both on the golf course and at the accompanying spa and resort is first class. You can even order food and drinks to be delivered to you on the course as you play. Afterwards the spa and clubhouse restaurant are recommended for those golfers having the time and wishing to make their round at Mission Hills into a full day's total Phuket golfing experience!

Mission Hills Phuket Golf Resort Reviews & Comments

 
John Dickhart (2012-09-04)
Great course for the high handicapper, the greens are slick and the layout is fantastic.
The course is next to the ocean and offers great views.
The golf shop has a good range of apparel and you can enjoy a cold drink after your round in the resturant situated near 9th green.

A big course, I can see why the carts are compulsary. A great course design by The Golden Bear (would you expect anything less?) This course offers plenty of risk / reward for the well executed shot and room for the higher handicap to enjoy as well.
Sean Eckton (2010-03-08)
Some great views from this course. Played on a hot sticky day so the buggy we had to use was ideal - i normally prefer walking. A good paced round unlike other courses in Thailand where i have had to 'endure' 5+ hours. Three good holes by the sea.
Pete Jones (2010-03-04)
A nice open course with not too many mature trees, so good for the first time golfer or high handicapper. Three holes take you along the ocean which has some lovely views.
Watch out for the greens though they need some work and the whole place is quite pricey.

Graham (2010-03-03)
This course may not be in the best condition on the island - but it just might be the best layout. So many great holes. Just call preferred lies on the 1st tee and enjoy a great layout. The big bonus is it rarely gets busy, so a round takes less than 4 hours. Millionaires golf at its best.
Andy (2010-03-03)
Lovely layout, nice big clubhouse, ideal for the higher hadicapper as it is not so busy and it is quite an 'open'course. Nice facillities and a boutique style hotel. Great fun.
Craig Mallock (2010-01-01)
Mission Hills is quite nice because its directly next to the ocean, and you can enjoy the view of the landscape. It was tough sometimes because this golf course has pretty windy conditions. But I like the added challenge.
