Known as the most relaxing golf course in Phuket. Located in the centre of the island next to Red Mountain in Kathu District just 10 minutes from Phuket Town or Patong Beach the course nestles below a panoramic range of peaks, and is sandwiched between the Kathu Waterfalls and Kathu Village. The layout surrounds the largest lake on any golf course in Phuket, Crystal Lake, a massive 48 acres in size. This is an 18 hole, par 72, 6,555 yard, palm tree-lined beauty that has recently completed major re-designs and renovation upgrades.

We were recommended this place by a friend and chose to play it three times a golf holiday. Whilst it may not compare with the scenic beauty of its sister course Red Mountain, it offers plenty of very pretty holes and is stern test of your game. No weak holes and several very memorable ones. Caddies excellent and attentive. We... More

Very expensive for what you get. Ok course. Short and cramped. Better value for money elsewhere. Course belongs to MBK company and is run like a business. MONEY is important!

This is not my favorite in Phuket because really very busy very fast. All the holes are close to each other and you feel this busy impression. The course is correct but not really perfect .

Expensive, but if you like golf try this course. The fairways are in excellent condition and the greens are professional quality. Bunkers and water to contend with.

Great golf course - lots of water so have plenty of spare balls. Caddy I had for the day was excellent with helping where to aim and reading the putts. Carts are always good at these courses when the heat and humidity is high and would recommend to all. Some greens / fairways were going through some renovation / coring... More

The course was in good condition and overall I had a decent round of 18 holes. The cost has gone up, at 4800 baht for green fees, 700 baht for cart, and then caddie fee (which I normally tip 1000 baht). Then the purchase of a few balls (I need extra hence I bought 9), another 1000 baht. So in... More
