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 selected as the venue for the 1994 Johnnie Walker Classic. Since then the same tournament has returned two times with Tiger Woods winning in 1998.  Blue Canyon recognized as a world championship golf course continually ranks as one of Thailand's best golf courses.

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

The front nine 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 undoubtedly be the center of after round discussions.

The Par 5 11th is a challenging 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 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 bailout area and unless playing the course before, trusting 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 anywhere, and even from the white tees, it’s a long iron or fairway wood to a partially hidden green that tucked behind the canyon on the right.

Blue Canyon has a large clubhouse, with three 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. Most Phuket golf visitors skip the onsite resort and prefer to stay close to one of the leading centers or at least at one of the resorts on the nearby Mai Khao Beach.

Blue Canyon Country Club, Canyon Course Reviews & Comments

Dr H. (2024-05-14)
"Difficult and challenging but very nice and satisfying, friendly and good caddies! "
Pritash M. (2024-05-06)
"Amazing condition "
Norman E. (2024-04-13)
"Excellent course."
Chris G. (2024-04-10)
"Played in peak condition immediately post the KLPGA event. Very good layout. The signature canyon hole offers a true risk and reward challenge. A good, if not a great course, perhaps a little convoluted in its lay out. Probably the best 'golf test' on the island but not necessarily the most fun or memorable. Hospitality in the club house a little disorganised. "
Haydn F. (2024-04-02)
"loved the course"
Lisa H. (2024-03-02)
"Course was lovely and in excellent condition- just a bit untidy around the edges. "
Mike W. (2024-02-22)
"Beautiful course"
Garth O. (2024-02-09)
"Great layout. We were fortunate enough to be among the first groups to play the newly renovated full 18. There was still some works underway, however this hardly detracted from the experience."
Sherjan T. (2024-01-30)
"Great layout and level of skill required to play this course"
Grieg L. (2023-03-19)
"Another gem and completely different to Blue Canyon Lakes course"
Colin M. (2023-02-23)
"I didn’t lose a ball so it must have been less challenging but still enjoyable "
Brett W. (2023-02-12)
"Very nice but second place to the lakes course."
Michael H. (2023-02-01)
"Challenging and interesting course"
Kristian R. (2023-01-19)
"Top golf course Great layout and design"
Alex K. (2022-12-15)
"Scenery was great. The signature hole is amazing. Caddies are knowledgeable on course. Both fairways and green were well maintained. Food at the club house was great"
Bharat S. (2022-11-23)
"Beautifully maintained, open, and picturesque, and very efficient operations overall. "
Chris B. (2022-10-16)
"Rate this just behind Black Mountain, some very lovely holes and definate to play again if in Phuket, would recommend to anyone going there that this course a must to play"
Kerry R. (2022-07-17)
"Bunkers everywhere which made it challenging for me"
Bill Q. (2022-07-15)
"brilliant course ..."
Roger M. (2012-05-30)
"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."
Sean E. (2010-03-08)
"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."
graham (2010-03-03)
"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! "
Andy (2010-03-03)
"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."
Roger (2009-12-23)

    • Thanks for yet another fabulous golf holiday in Thailand. This was our 6th and probably our best yet. This time we were a group of 18 visiting Hua Hin and Phuket. We all loved Banyan and Black Mountain (HH) and Red Mountain & Blue Canyon in Phuket. All the hotels we stayed at - Sofitel (Bkk) Centara (HH) & Angsana (Phuket) were fabulous. The transportation to and from the courses and additional transportation to other places of interest were on time and efficient. Lit who set up our programme and Bua our on-the-ground guide were enthusiastic and a pleasure to deal with. Everything went without a hitch, according to the schedule that Lit had assiduously set up for us. Thanks to Golfasian for their attention to detail and meticulousness. In doing so, you took the stress out of travelling in a large group where things can go horribly wrong very quickly. Because the planning was so thorough, you made everything enjoyable, stress free and fun. We're already planning for next year.

    • My first golf vacation and have to say the Thai caddies were fantastic and everything was set up from hotel to ground transport so all I had to do was concentrate on getting some birdies. Thank you Golfasian great service from start to finish.

    • Went with my brother and our non-golfing wives on a weeklong golf and cultural holiday in Hanoi. Superb attention to detail by Sophie who was very patient as we made several changes prior to finalization of booking. Drivers were very prompt and friendly. Tour guide "Hiro" who led us to an exploration of Hanoi military history was awesome and we learned so much from him. Played Dai Lai Star and BRG Legend, great design and scenery. Enjoyed also our cruise of Halong Bay. Just wish we had the time to play another round or 2. We are now planning a golf trip to either Penang, Phuket or Yogyakarta and cant wait to use GolfAsian again.

    • Our Danang golf tour has just finished. We played the 4 great courses there, and played them twice. Our group was 10 pax, from being met at the airport and being delivered to our hotel, and then for our 8 days of golf, everything was perfect. I would like to specially thank Miss Huong who did so much to help us before and during our tour, and also our driver/tour guide Lucky who is not only a lovely man, but was funny, full of knowledge which he was happy to share with us, and he is a great and safe driver. Well done to the Golf Asian team. We would not hesitate to recommend them for a golf tour in Asia. Don’t try to do it yourself, use Golf Asian..5 stars..😀

    • Chris recommended I change my hotel accommodations and allow Golfasian to arrange my Bangkok trip and golf tee times. I'm so glad I did because the hotel, the transportation, and the four golf courses they arranged were excellent. I was in the Soi 11 area, so everything was within walking distance. I had a great time for my first visit to Thailand, and I will certainly use Golfasian again for my golf trip to Pattaya next year.
