Loch Palm Golf Club

Holes 18 | Par 72 | Length 5994 m / 6555 y | Type Parkland | Architect Dr. Sukitti Klangwisai

A long-time Phuket favourite where a dry ball should ensure a good score

Spectacularly set in a basin surrounded by mountainous jungle, Loch Palm Golf Club has been a firm favourite on the Phuket golf tour since its inception in 1993. More straightforward than some of its more illustrious competitors - but still with enough challenges to test golfers of all abilities thanks largely to the loch itself - this is a hugely enjoyable course.

Keeping your ball out of water should be your main objective, and if you can achieve this first time around then you are ahead of the curve. On the front nine the loch and its associated tributaries are frequently in play, often cutting into the fairway ensuring that even the straightest of drives can end up being punished. Off line you can also find yourself amongst the numerous palm trees which helped give the course its name, but they are never so densely packed together that recovery is impossible. The 4th hole, a long par three over water to a semi-island green, is the pick of the front 9.

The most memorable holes come towards the end. The 14th is a short par-3 with an elevated tee shot to an island green; it is tricky to pick the right club, and it takes some time to find out if you made the right choice as your ball seems to hang in the air for eternity before (hopefully) finding the safety of the green. The 16th is another par-3 where anything right will be swallowed up by water and a sloping two-tier green means that not all balls that land on the green stay there.

While the overall condition of the course is excellent, particularly given much traffic it sees, one small complaint is the inconsistency of the greens. A few of them have been relaid and play much faster, which means it can be easy to get caught out. Thankfully the caddies are excellent, so we suggest you pay attention to what they suggest!

Loch Palm can get very crowded at weekends so midweek play is advisable. The clubhouse has been recently renovated and the changing rooms, pro-shop and the restaurant are all excellent. There’s also a unique driving range where you hit floating balls over a lake.

A small on-site resort caters for those wanting to stay overnight and hit the course early in the morning, but if you’re including Loch Palm Golf Club on your Phuket golf holiday, you’re better off staying in one of the beach areas where there’s more to do.

Great to be back

Reviewed by ; on
Great staff at check-in and in the restaurant. Great caddie Rung 043. The only disappointment was the changes to the courses. The back nine have been reshaped and they have removed some of the best holes for challenges and views. Very disappointed that the final hole which used to be one of the best in Phuket, has been changed to an easy par 4. I obviously don’t know the behind the scenes decision, but just expressing my opinion from playing many times in the past and the new layout. Still a great course don’t get me wrong just not the old feeling and challenge.

Nice to be back after a long time due to pandemic. Friendly staff, clearly scarred by the lack of tourism, were excellent and made me feel very welcome

Reviewed by ; on
A bit inconsistent but I knew that there is some maintenance going on. Greens were a little inconsistent between quite fast and very slow. The redesigned back nine is not great, the new 10th / 11th combination is not appealing. A shame, the old 17th and 18th were great holes. Anyway it was wonderful to be back and my caddy #060 Miss Tae was great as usual..

A Nice, short but technical course in a great natural setting

Reviewed by ; on
Overall good. Caddies of uneven skills. Most of them not enough English spoken. Push for higher tips based on a notice on the wall is not professional

Good and interesting course to play - more affordable than Red Mountain

Reviewed by ; on
The course is interesting to play. Different types of holes requires thinking what is the best way to play. Some of the tee boxes (especially blue ones) were not in good condition. Overall fairways were in good condition. However some greens were not in best condition - they were very dry and much faster than other greens - made putting a bit challenging.
