Blue Canyon Country Club

Blue Canyon Phuket

The Blue Canyon Golf course consists of 2 superbly laid out 18 hole courses that challenge even professional players when they come here but are still suitable for players of high handicaps, although possibly not for beginners.

Both courses are over 7,000 yards in length and are par 72s although most players on either course will be happy with par.

The Canyon course was the first to open and has in its time been described as one of the toughest courses in Asia. It has been home to a number of international tournaments including the Johnny Walker Classic on 2 occasions.

The course record is held by Greg Norman and the Amateur record by Tiger Woods which gives you an idea of the quality of players that like to come and play at Blue Canyon.

As the name suggests the Canyon Course is made up of narrow fairways and big drop offs should you go wayward with your drive. There are some sensational views and shots to be made on this course and a round on this course will stay in your memory for a long time.

The lakes course opened in 1999 and is targeted at a wider range of golfers of all standards although with water hazards on 17 of the 18 holes it is wise to bring a number of spare balls. As with the other course club selection is critical.

A superb club house provides an excellent location to have a beer or a meal whilst dissecting what went right, and wrong, with your round of golf.
