Red mountain golf course Phuket.

Red mountain Golf Club, one of Phukets most favored golf courses lays in the Kathu district and sits on what used to be a tin mine. The course thanks its name due to the landscape where it was build on, red soil, granite rocks and hills.

Opened in 2007, the 224 hectare houses an 18-hole course with a length of 6,781 and is par 72. GPA pro Jonathan Mark Morrow designed the course, which takes you through different landscapes and hazards, with a grat spectrum of flora and fauna. In the opening year Red Mountain was voted 3rd best new course in Asia.

All in all, it takes about four-and-a-half hours to complete the course with five refreshment kiosks along the way. Red Mountain Golf Club also has a fleet of electric golf-carts which help you along the way. The course is generally considered difficult, especially for beginners. A driving range is also available right next to the clubhouse.

The Red Mountain Club House is perched on the top of a hill and overlooks the erstwhile tin mine, including the 9th and 18th holes. Situated some two kilometers from the common entrance to Loch Palm and Red Mountain Golf Clubs, the road leading to the clubhouse is extremely well maintained and offers glimpses over the course.

When you arrive at the clubhouse, a team uniformed staff will take care of you and your equipment before escort you to the tee-off or to the locker rooms (separate for men and women). In case you do not have your own equipment you can rent golf clubs. All the top names are here – Taylormade, Nike, Ping and Cobra.

The Clubhouse also has a boutique pro-shop where you can purchase all the equipment and clothes necessary for a good round of golf. The Red Mountain restaurant is open from 06:00 to 19:00 and serves reasonably priced Thai and western classic dishes. The view from the restaurant terrace is superb and even non-golfers come here to enjoy a late breakfast or lunch.
