Red Mountain Golf Club: Another Great Reason to Love Phuket

July 1, 2016 -

Phuket is where you go to if you want to top up that tan or explore some of the underwater wonders whilst snorkeling or scuba diving.

It's a melting pot of different people with different cultural backgrounds that have the same thing in mind – get away from the hustle and bustle of their city homes and just have a relaxing time with families and friends.

However Phuket isn't all about the sea and sand and the occasional temple visits. For golf enthusiasts, it also offers a number of world-class golf courses and if you only have time for single round then there is one golf course in Phuket that is not to be missed. Red Mountain Golf Club is among the best Phuket Golf Courses located right in the center of the island, a short distance from the main beach area in Patong and about 40 minutes from the airport. If you can stretch your budget then a round here, on a course recognized as being one of the best in Thailand, will leave you with memories to share with your golfing buddies back home long after you have left Phuket.

Considered to be Phuket's newest ‘it' course, Red Mountain has won and continues to be nominated for numerous awards and won the Platinum Golf Course of the Year at the 2011 Hospitality Asia Platinum Awards in Singapore. Designed by Jon Morrow and Al Tikkanen, this creative, challenging, and highly strategic 6,900 yard layout complements its shorter and gentler sister course Loch Palm. The course winds its way through the jungles and red hills that inspired its name. The difficulty of building a golf courses in amongst such difficult terrain is evidenced by the long stretches between holes making a cart essential as even they struggle to climb some of the hills. Walking is impossible and actually not allowed.

The hole that everyone talks about is the par 3, 17th. You have to tee off from a very elevated tee box some 70-80 meters above the green and you play a short iron through the tee canopy onto the putting surface below. The finishing hole is a spectacular downhill par 5 demands a long and accurate drive if you want to finish with a par or better. Feel like you're up for it?

The clubhouse has been built in an elevated position overlooking the course and you get great views from terrace. The Proshop caters to all golfer's needs whether its golfing shoes, a new glove, or memorabilia of your round at this amazing course you can show off your peers back home. The clubhouse restaurant serves a first-class breakfast and variety of Thai and Western cuisines to enjoy along with a cold beer or two after a long day on the course. If you're not up to a big meal, they have a staging area where you can buy a freshly brewed cup of coffee or a light snack.

Red Mountain is really a special course. There is also a small golf lodge nearby and villa rentals available if you have time for more than one round and wish to stay nearby. Booking your tee time is a breeze; and you can book any Golf Course in Phuket through http://www.golfsavers.com.
