I just wanted to write to you to report on our recent trip.
The hotel in Kanchanaburi was fine, breakfast was average, but we just loved the town and the golf!
Special mention to our driver Joe, who was an excellent young man.
Unfortunately in Phuket we had heavy, heavy rain for about 4 days and some of the courses should have been closed they were so waterlogged.
We played Katathani, which had some spectacular holes and a few just insane ones (17th – strangest golf hole we have ever seen).
I thought Laguna was a terrific course with Loch Palm a little behind it.
Blue Canyon , Canyon was a great layout and I regret playing it off the whites, as I found it no harder than Loch Palm
Red Mountain, as expected, was the highlight, with the entire group rating it probably Thailand’s finest course.
The Lakes course at Blue Canyon was a bit disappointing, with the group unanimously rating it one of the weakest courses we have played in Asia.
It’s a shame the whole course was not as strong as the 18th hole which stood out as the best on the course!
The Amari was superb in every way and fitted our needs perfectly.
The Manager there, Pierre, is absolutely amazing in setting the standard for his staff and did a wonderful job looking after our group.
Thanks again for all your help, Golfasian again excelled and special mention to the driver who had to return to Blue Canyon to retrieve a golf bag that got left behind by one of our group.
I am thinking of returning to Vietnam next year.
I know Ba Na Hills is now open, but I thought I heard that a new course south of Hoi An was also due for opening and also a possible new 18 at Danang, can you verify this?
