Red Mountain Golf Club

Holes 18 | Par 72 | Length 6314 m / 6905 y | Type Parkland | Architect John Morrow

The most spectacular golf course in Phuket and worth every penny

Set in the dramatically undulating landscape of an old tin mine amidst thick jungle, picturesque lakes and the red mountainside from which it took its name, Red Mountain Golf Club is quite simply one of the most spectacular courses in the world, let alone Thailand. Thanks to some memorable holes and the stunning views on offer from its high points, this is an essential stop on any Phuket golf holiday.

The range of challenges you will face runs the whole gamut: if you can negotiate the wind, water, sand and slopes you will find greens that range from small and flat to large and contoured. The only consistency is found in the uniform quickness of the putting surface and the pristine condition of the narrow fairways. 

With more than its fair share of elevation changes and rocky outcrops, there are plenty of opportunities to take risks in search of rewards, but with a liberal array of water hazards this approach can be harshly punished. You’re best advised to trust the suggestions of the excellent caddies regarding club selection, and to hit straight.

The final six holes are the best, not only some of the most spectacular in Thailand but also some of the toughest. Attempting to hit the postage stamp green of the par-3 17th when you are teeing off from some 70 metres above is great fun, and the standout 18th requires some strategic shot making to make par, despite playing much shorter than its 500-yard length would suggest. As you drive up to the well stocked clubhouse in your compulsory golf cart (you really wouldn't want to walk this course), you will have a smile on your face regardless of the state of your scorecard. 

Even though the green fees, the caddie's tip and the post-round beer mean you won't get change from US$150, you’ll feel it was worth every penny as a trip to Red Mountain Golf Club is an experience that will live long in the memory.

Red Mountain Golf Club

Very beautiful course

Reviewed by ; on
Red Mountain has a very beautiful 18-hole course. Some of its holes are rather challenging. The course conditions are nice. We played it twice during our stay in Phuket. The golf rate, though, is a bit too high. August is supposed to be in the monsoon season, but surprisingly, we did not experience any problems with the train. Most of the rain is passing light rain, which usually stop after 20 minutes. On our last day of playing, we were wondering if we should go to play as it rained continuously in the early morning. However, once we reached Red Mountain, it was full of sunshine. Your driver may find it very difficult to find the club. Once you get through the entrance, there is only one sign to tell you to turn right. You may easily miss it and even you make the right turn, you will still be wondering if you are going in the right direction as there are no more signs during a 1 km drive. If you are booking a taxi using Grab or Bolt, make sure you do not use the "current location" and type in Red Mountain Golf Club instead. The Google Map gives the club location a strange address name that most drivers cannot find.

Greens heavily Sanded

Reviewed by ; on
A lot of money to pay for a course with the greens heavily sanded. Normally this is known in advance and reduced rates.

Fantastic course design but poor service

Reviewed by ; on
I was disappointed from the beginning with rude attitude from reception, then I have to change caddy on the first hole while she was so negative and not professional with terrible mood. Thanks I did it on a first hole and they gave me wonderful caddy Prim, 24 years old lady, very professional and positive. She saved my day and brought a lot of good moments. She was so happy when I did Eagle on hole 8..)) Talking about condition of the course, I expected much better maintenance for the most expensive course in Phuket. Bunkers are in terrible condition, greens are sandy and dry. And what surprised me a lot is a completely terrible service, no water on course, even for cash, restaurant in club house is terrible and food is disgusting.

Red Mountain Golf Club

Good and challenging course

Reviewed by ; on
Overall, this was a great experience for a 1st timer golfer in Phuket. The transport arrangements were very good and punctual. Reception was very welcoming and thorough. Food options were also very decent quality. Staff on green knew the right etiquette. Caddies did a great job. Unfortunate for me, it rained after 3 holes and there were insufficient shelters. Recalled only 1 between 9 and 10. There was no place to take shelter. Drainage can be improved, lost 4 balls in 4 holes on the fairway due to the rain. Overall, pretty challenging course with narrow fairways and lots of water hazard. Will visit again
