Red Mountain Golf Club

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

Red Mountain Golf Club in Phuket will never be a true championship course but if you can afford it this is a sensational experience and one of the best courses in Thailand. It's not easy but the wonderful views alone make this worth playing.

As you stand in the clubhouse overlooking the course it’s hard to believe that they could possibly have built a course in amongst all those red hills and jungle.  What is equally amazing is this is the first course that was designed by John Morrow – I doubt if he will ever better this.

The course winds its way between the hills that inspired its name and is dotted with lakes which are a reminder of its former life as a tin mining area.  There are often long stretches between each hole making a buggy essential as  even they struggle to get up some of the hills – walking this course would be impossible which is why it will never host a major championship.

The jungle lines most of the fairways so any wayward shots are severely punished and on many holes it’s advisable to keep your driver in the bag and use something that will keep you on the fairway.

So many great holes it’s difficult to mention them all.  On the front 9 the 3rd which is a short par 3 to a green protected by a rocky outcrop is memorable and the 6th, the most difficult hole on the course, with danger everywhere.  The finishing hole on the front nine as you drive towards the club house from an elevated tee but get out of position here and the green is blocked out.

The hole everyone talks about is the par 3 17th as you tee off from a very elevated tee some 70-80 metres high through the tree canopy to the green below.   The finishing hole is a spectacular downhill par 5 but it requires a long an accurate drive if you want to finish with a par or better.

Excellent clubhouse facilities.  If you would like to stay overnight here then you can find more information here.

I can understand why it was once number one in Asia

What a beautiful day in Phuket and a beautiful Golf Course! Our caddies Nit and Fon were a perfect addition to what was already perfection. Also most important to me being a left-handed golfer who didn't bring his clubs was ecstatic to have a selection of 4 different high end sets. We were just in Khao Yai and the only clubs I could find were at least 10 year old knock offs at Kirimaya. To make matters worse the next day we played Toscana and they didn't have any left-handed clubs so Kirimaya was nice enough to let me rent from them to bring to Toscana. Thank you Red Mountain for caring about not only golf perfection but us lefties too!

Had a good game despite challenging conditions !

Reviewed by ; on
Great caddy , nice condition and great honest greens. Good layout and challenging. Not necessary to have 1 buggy / person - rip off ! Talked to another single player whose girlfriend accompanied him and a) she was not allowed to walk the course b) was charged for a buggy although she was not playing c) had to hire , pay for and tip a caddy although she was not playing. This is scandalous and the course should be reported to the Thai Tourist Board and the Phuket Golf Association if there is one and those monies refunded. A sour taste to what could have been a great experience.

Red Mountain was out of this world. Extremely expensive but one of the most visually stunning rounds of golf that I have ever had the pleasure of playing.

"The best in Phuket and one of best in Thailand"

Reviewed by ; on
No question this is the best golf course in Phuket. Excellent layout with lots of water hazards and of course the jungle-covered red mountains. The front nine is located in the lowers parts of the course and then you climb up into the mountains for the inwards nine. The 17th is a fun hole and the 18th is a great finish.
