Is Phuket famous as a golfing destination? Around Asia it certainly is, with golfers regularly flying in from Japan, China, Hong Kong, Singapore and sometimes even Australia, to take advantage of the great mix of six very different courses. They also appreciate Phuket's competitive prices on 18 holes (especially compared to Japan, but perhaps not against Australian prices). Then, not surprisingly, the excellent beach resorts and hotels plus lots of after-hours entertainment further enhance Phuket's reputation as a golfer's favourite. After all, no-one spends all day and night on the greens. Many golfers also bring their families, for in Phuket there is beach for the kids, shopping and spa for the wife while the husband does his 18s.
Bangkok, of course, supplies the island with a continuous flow of weekend golfers. Golf has boomed in Thailand over the past two generations and many Thais have become mad-keen about their swing and time on the greens. A great deal of business is transacted on the country's 200 plus golf courses, built in all corners of the country. Political horse trading, too.
The six courses are spread all around Phuket island, making access to one or more easy no matter which beach one is accommodated at. The six courses currently in operation are these below.
