Set amidst a valley in Kathu, the course is known for its gentle hills, subtle greens and great opportunities to score pars. Set across 6,483 yards, the course is not the longest on the island, which benefits medium range hitters and those who hit the ball straight
With a variety of holes with undulating fairways with lots of mature trees, alongside a large lake and plenty of bunkers, the Phuket Country Club is located in Kathu, just a 10-minute drive from Patong Beach and has long been known as one of the most forgiving courses on the island. If you are looking for a game of golf in Phuket that combines high quality conditions with a very golfer-friendly attitude, both on and off the course, The Old Course at Phuket Country Club is essential playing.
The front nine holes weave their way through undulating and testing holes with tight tee shots, until you reach the short back-to-back par-4s on the 6th and 7th, with elevated tee-offs that are great par opportunities but also bring the jungle terrain into play, so you have been warned.
The back-nine is much flatter and kicks off with the drivable par-5 10th hole, which is the signature hole (see below) and is the ultimate risk-reward hole.
On the back-9, the 16th and 17th bring water hazards into play, with the latter being a stunning par-3 with an island green, which is the ultimate score-breaker.
The course is always in great condition and the clubhouse facilities include a restaurant with amazing elevated views overlooking the 18th green, which really is a great place to relax and unwind after a round. You will also find lots of practice putting greens, tennis courts, a swimming pool, changing rooms and a pro shop.
