(a long-time local favorite for its unique, fun & fair design)
While Loch Palm Golf Club is not the longest Phuket golf course, it is one of the most enjoyable and consistent. Nestling beneath a panoramic range of jungle-clad hills, Loch Palm is easy going although still capable of throwing down many challenges and giving any Phuket golfer a thorough workout. As the club’s name suggests, palm trees are liberally dotted around this parkland layout, although never too densely.

(Phuket's most exciting course; dramatic scenery and great golf)
It's not difficult to see why this Phuket golf course was named Red Mountain. It is harder, however, to imagine how such a dramatically undulating landscape, where soft red rock and dense jungle were the principal ingredients, could be transformed into a challenging, yet playable layout.
Red Mountain Golf Course opened in 2007 and is now considered Phuket's most spectacular golf course.
