The Old Course at Phuket Country Club marks the first championship 18-hole standard golf course ever constructed on Phuket Island. This club for golfing is found at the heart of Phuket and is easily reachable from any main hotel and beach areas. Phuket golf resort is easily described as friendly and wayward shots rarely get punished severely. The course itself lies within a valley where it meanders through limestone cliffs and hills, traversing across three unique settings. Six holes are set on level ground, 6 in undulating and the last 6 across landscape forest.
The layout employed features a fairly tough start, especially with the front nine. A number of tight, accurate drives are needed on these holes. Both 6th and 7th hole short back-to-back par-4’s are hit from elevated tees, which lie at the jungle edge. Water hazards exist at par-5 557 yard 10th. Playing the 10th courses it 180 degrees around u-shaped fairway, laid out around large lake.
The par-4 short 16th and par-3 island green 17th notably have water barriers as well. There are straight-faced pot bunkers guarding several greens. Typical Thai charm is readable all across the club house to guarantee a truly memorable golfing experience.
