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.

Very pretty course

Reviewed by ; on
The course has had a lot of rain and struggles to drain the water quickly. Hit the fairways with a drive and had to search for a deeply plugged ball in the middle of the fairways. Overall a pretty course and would like to play again when dry.

In die Jahre gekommen platz und clubhaus, keine neuen investitionen sichtbar.... Leider nicht empfehlenswert (The space and clubhouse are getting old, no new investments visible... Unfortunately not recommended)

Preis leistung stimmt nicht. Nicht mal Wasser bekommt man. Der erhaltene Konsunstionsbeitrag auf Karte ist da nur bedingt Ersatz (Overpriced and you don't even get water. The cash card provides limited compensation)

A wonderful, misty morning’s golf

Reviewed by ; on
I got to the course early and it was misty, humid and inviting! The Course was in very good condition, with the exception of a couple of holes that were boggy but, given all the rain they’d had in the days prior to my arrival, this was to be expected. My caddie, Marai, was excellent company and really knowledgeable and helped my game accordingly. The pro shop was well stocked and had a nice little sale on, so I bought a bit more merch than I’d anticipated. All in all I loved the golf and was made to feel very welcome by the team on-site.

Loch Palm Golf Club

good test of skills while enjoying some lovely views

Reviewed by ; on
was in good conditions there were a few groups banked up on the first however our caddies took action and we moved to a different part of the course to continue our round and then returned to the start to play 2,3 and 4. This was great initiative as if we had waited it would have taken 2 of us 6 hours to play whereas it ended up 4 hours. Course is in good condition and the greens were quicker than others we had recently played.
