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.

A very pleasant time out on the course

A very good course in good condition but work underway on one hole which looked like a large bunker. Plenty of water making for some challenging holes.

Enjoyed the day even while hungover. Caddies, staff, were great. The course however…..

Reviewed by ; on
I played from the tips just for reference. Not long at just over 6000 yards. The layout is decent. Some short par 4’s and long par 3’s. I probably could have reached 3 of the par 5’s or be around the green if I hit a good drive. The one uphill may not be doable for me. The rough is not long and is usually playable. There are thick bladed grass in parts of the course that is similar to the grass in residential areas of Florida. My pet peeve are bad greens. These greens were so inconsistent, with some playing to a stump of 10 ( My home course runs around that) and others probably an 7-8. The informational board said 8.7 on 1/1/24. FYI, Shot an 85 with 4 -3 putts
