Red Mountain Golf Club
The Red Mountain Golf Course is widely regarded to be among some of the best courses in Phuket due to its spectacular layout, excellent playability, and stunning views throughout. Measuring at just under 7,000 yards long and featuring a range of hazards along the way, it comes as no surprise that the Red Mountain Golf Club was voted among the three Top New Golf Courses in Asia in 2007. For an unforgettable round of golf, the Red Mountain Golf Club is an unbeatable choice.
The layout at the Red Mountain Golf Club is one of the most distinctive in Thailand, making it a must-play golf course on any itinerary for an unforgettable golf holiday. The layout here adopts and maintains the best features of the natural landscape meaning golfers must maintain a steady scorecard across dramatic elevation changes. Yet due to the steep elevation changes, at the Red Mountain Golf Club, golf carts are compulsory.

Some of the distinctive features across the Red Mountain Golf Course includes rugged rock cliffs and canyons, creating a truly idyllic landscape. Native jungle vegetation is a recurring theme across the stunning golf course here, meaning successful course management is imperative. Scars from the natural landscape remain and have been incorporated into the course from the tin mine era, creating a stunningly natural golfing experience. With water coming into play on several holes as well as strategically placed bunkers, this golf course demands excellent course management and skilful play throughout. However conveniently for the more skilled player, this fantastic course is home to a couple of long par 4s for the ‘long hitters’ and a few shorter par 4s that give the opportunity to score a birdie.
A signature hole on the Red Mountain Golf Course for many includes the par-3 17th. This hole is widely considered to be the most demanding on the course due to a 50 metre drop to the green. The shot across the green demands extreme accuracy as the green is lined by trees and dense greenery either side. Another example of a signature hole includes the par-5 2nd hole in which players must place the emphasis on accuracy in their shot as opposed to length in order to shoot through a narrow fairway, doglegged to the right, to a hidden green. A narrow shot is also demanded on the short par-4 8th hole, where golfers must shoot across the fairway with two large water hazards lying either side.
