Playing in two of the finest golf resorts Phuket has in store for you

By: Brian Garcia

If you are planning to fly to Thailand and play in a fine golf resort Phuket has to offer, then better check these two golf courses that have been revered by golfers from all around the world.

The first that you might want to check out is Blue Canyon Country Club's Canyon course. It has been highly regarded as one of the best venues in the Asian region for professional golf tournaments because of its elegance and its aura. Established in 1991, The Canyon has since become one of the most mesmerizing courses for that brings more than playing golf into the table. It's got a breathtaking terrain that is full of green while water appears upon approaching the 9th green which can be considered a perfect risk-reward par-5. And once you reach the long par-5 11th and par-4 12th holes, the water levels begin to escalate before reaching the par-4 13th "canyon" hole.

You might need to commit to some risky drive over the water when you get to this point in order for you to clear the 30-foot high face. As far as the pros go, they opt to drive the green in this hole but still, you will need to make a decision as to how much of the canyon you will be biting off.

The par-4 16th on the other hand is like an elegant gem while the long par-3 17th which is across the water is another stunner. While on the par-4 18th, the jungle-filled hills and the clubhouse itself becomes your backdrop. A fitting finish, if you may call it to one of the finest golf resort Phuket experience you can ever have.

Another golf course that should be on your "must-play in" list is the Red Mountain. This course is a bit harder but the sights that await you – a landscape full of soft red rock dense jungle – makes this challenging course a more playable one. Built in 2006, it opened with six holes that becomes much tougher and tougher as it goes along the final stretches.

This wonderful golf resort Phuket is proud of has got an elevation that is changing coupled with red, rocky cliffs and lush tropical vegetation making it one of the hottest places in Thailand to play golf in. The panorama at the back of the 16th green is also a sight to behold.

The short par-3 17th on the other hand is a downhill and hitting a postage stamp in the lower depths  that is all-jungle can really be an exciting experience. The par-5 which is still a downhill might require a strategic placement on your part from tee to green which can equate into double figures on your scorecard. Play in this course to find out if it deserves to be called the most exciting golf course in Phuket and perhaps, as some golfers would say, in all of Asia as well. Truly, learning, elevating your game and playing golf in Thailand has never been this good.
