There is no better time to play golf in Phuket than now


Recommended Posts

Curious, having read all the horror stories (and experienced a little many years ago) how much would it cost for a taxi to get from the accommodation mentioned to the respective courses? Eg. Patong to Red Mountain/Laguna, Laguna to each?

Personally i don,t consider 2600baht for a round of golf as affordable...at that price it would have to be 0nce a fortnight not once a week. Far far better deals in Chonburi for under 1400baht ...all in. imho

Yes Keith - but you have taken the most expansive round in Phuket and compared it to some of the the cheapest in Chonburi - that is hardly fair. As I said you can play Blue Canyon 1500thb including caddie and cart - and you wont find a better course in Pattaya that offers that - feel free to correct me. Yes one thing Pattaya does have is very cheap - more basic average parklands style courses cheaper than you get in Phuket - with 40+ courses there you have that luxury. But Red Mountain is absolutely top class right up there with the Siam Courses. If budget is your ONLY consideration then I understand but if you compare the quality of the course - I still think Phuket is the best option.

Hi Topt - yes the taxi's are still an issue as far as i can tell here. having said that red mountain / laguna to and from Patong would not be an issue - honestly contact me if you come to Phuket I will take you to Blue Canyon for the cost of the petrol! Of course there is also the fact you can rent a car for the day for about the cost of the taxi far to and from the airport - traffic is creeping back up again - but by and large it is nothing like BKK / Pattaya has so it not too bad.

Burapha at 1250 baht all-in is a great deal.

Pattana another good course now 1350 baht all-in.

I wont dispute anything you say Graeme.....i have n,t played golf in Phuket and at those prices i probably never will. My reply was to the Op,s remark      "And it might actually be the most affordable place to play golf in Thailand"    that is where i would disagree.

Obviously if you live there it,s even cheaper...chuck in travel cost,s and accommodation and no it,s not on my Buck-it list...it,s on my other list that begins with (F). :wink:

Thanks Hamster - I would argue Pattana is no where near as good as Blue Canyon - Burapha is on a par and a good deal for sure.

well if you can drive hire a car at the airport. We used Arun Phuket Car Rental who supplied a good condition Honda Jazz for just THB800 a day.

Ditch the caddies and I'll come and play. 

Yeah...with the tip also, it kinda makes for an expensive day...the compulsory bit is a rip off.
