The course for golfing at Mission Hills Resort was designed by Jack Nicklaus and makes for an outstanding sight. It sits among forests of mangrove upon Phuket city on its scenic north-east coast. This golf course incorporates some spectacular panoramic views of the ocean, with a few holes actually playing out over-head the Andaman Sea. Expect to see huge sand beach bunkers contrasting with translucent blue ocean water hues. As well there are vibrant greens of Bermuda grass on fairways, with unique Sea Isle grass used on putting surfaces. Play can be quite tricky at certain day times, especially with seven holes experiencing water barriers.
