caddies are by far the friendliest I met in Thailand so far. Tries to
talk to you, laughs with you and even got decent control of your play.
If you are lucky you can save some putts thanks to their reading.
Hills, Hat Yai
the course. A little bit tight so you have to have control on the shots
from tee. A good stretch with some real tough holes, especially on the
caddies, buggies available.
Yai Resort, Hat Yai
But. The buildings and facilities were all very worn and I do hope that they will take care of that after the course restoration is done. Because they do need to.
and buggies. OK performance by both (fastest buggy I have driven, so far).
However, this is a course well worth visiting. Demanding, high standard on fairways and greens. Out of the layout I particularly liked the stretch from hole 3 to 7 (maybe because I had some cheering on the short and beautiful par 3 5th?).
caddies, no buggies.
a little weak reputation due to not consistent standard on the greens.
However, when I played here the greens were all in top condition and running
true, all with equal speed. Need some good driving on a few holes, otherwise
not too long, quite nice and possible to negotiate with.
the best caddies (made me some birdies) and club cars for hire.
Country Club, Phuket Town.
course shows that it is some years old. The area seems to be too tight
to build a course with the length like todays master course layouts. However
they have made a very clever layout with good doglegs, demanding tee-sots
and most of all very good variation. You will need to have the full bag
with good clubs to score well here.
good caddies, no club cars.
The course is quite demanding, but not too long. Most of the approaches were done with pretty short clubs, mostly wedges. Tricky and a lot of water to look out for. However, a good day with the driver (straight more than long) will keep you happy for the whole day and evening.
excellent. I had #158 and she is the best I had of all caddies in Thailand,
clubbed me to a lot of birdie opportunities. No buggies available.
Army Golf Course, Khao Lak
ninth and the last two holes go just alongside the beach and do interesting
things to your brain when you consider what big ocean winds can do to
The in holes tend to be more seaside, now and then they feel really linkslike. Last two holes gave me true links golf. Wind was up this morning and I really had to hold on to the shots. Superb.
