Phoenix Golf and Country Club, Pattaya has recently changed hands and is undergoing major renovations including the closure of one of the nines for a major renovation and remodelling. The course has 27 holes so you can still enjoy a round here and we expect that this course will get better and better as the owner has deep pockets and they have ambitions to attract major international events. READ OUR DETAILED REVIEW HERE.
Phoenix Golf and Country Club is around 30 minutes outside Pattaya. The course was originally designed by Denis Griffiths in 1993 and the three course are spread over more than 1,000 rai and having been around for so long the course is blessed with may mature trees and colourful local plants.
In addition there are plenty of lakes, ponds and bunkers to ensure that the golf course has some protection.
The Mountain Course offers golfers a wonderful view of one of the famous local landmark which is a huge image of a Buddha carved into a sheer cliff face with a laser. The narrow undulating fairways and the fast greens will provide a stern test for all golfers.
The Lakes Course rewards golfers who can keep their drives on line so ensuring the best position for your layup to the greens. The course is sprinkled with many beautiful ponds and small lakes and few strategically-placed trees and bunkers to challenge most golfers.
The Ocean Course is a favourite with local Pattaya golfers as many of the fairways are lined with mature trees but it is now undergoing a major renovation and to modernise the layout and it is expected to re-open in early 2016.
Tee Time Bookings at Phoenix Golf and Country Club
We expect this course to become very popular and with the temporary closure of one nine tee times may become difficult to obtain so we recommend that you book early.
I played twice at Phoenix Gold near Pattaya and came away having thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Day 1 I was faced with biblical rain, but played through it. Determined to see the course in the best light, I returned the next day when the sun was out. I was correct on a nice day, the course is beautiful. Some really great holes, with lots of well placed bunkers to catch any wayward shots. The greens in places werent the greatest surface, but mostly were fine, a little slower than I am used to, but it did rain a massive amount. They are really varied surfaces though, with big undulations, requiring some good shots in to get close to the hole, sometimes aiming at the flag is the wrong play. A really pleasant golf course, and I will certainly be returning in the hope I can play the 9 holes I didnt this time. I played the Ocean and Lakes 9's each day. My caddie was knowledgable and decent company for my round. Would recommend!
This course has a nice clubhouse, however it is being renovated just now. The layout is nice with challenges for both beginners and avid players. As of mid July 2016 the course is being prepped for a big tournament. They have done a great job, the condition is superb! As a result of the preparations the greens were a bit slow at around 10.5 on the stimpmeter. But when they cut it just before the tourney, rest assure they will be superquick. You will absolutely get true rolls on the greens, and they all play even speed. Great caddies, and a little tip: book caddie number 124. Extremely dedicated with sound knowledge about the greens. She shaved 3 strokes from my score, at least :) Convenient location about 20 minutes from the city. Don't miss it, a real treat for any golfer.
