Winding its way through a truly dramatic 1400 rai former tin mine site in the heart of Phuket, Red Mountain is one of Asia's most exciting new courses that officially opened in 2008. The course has been cleverly routed to take advantage of a huge variety of landforms and dizzying elevation changes. Scars left from the tin mine era have been imaginatively incorporated into the overall scheme, creating a unique character at the same time as establishing an indelible link with an important era in the Island's past. Designer Jon Morrow and co-designer Al Tikkanen, have created a highly strategic and challenging 6,900 yard lay out to complement the shorter and gentler Loch Palm which is next door. While the course is undoubtedly challenging, numerous risk and reward options create a fun playing environment, an exhilarating test of golf and a breathtaking scenic tour around a course that has become a golfing landmark in the region.

I asked Phuket Golf to recommend a course that would challenge me and at the same time not crush me. Fortunately I am more resilient than I thought. This course is simply stunning, with every hole offering a different challenge. Fairways were beautifully grassed, rough was fair and the jungle simply impenetrable. The lakes are deep and plentiful, the bunkers... More

My wife and I played this course while on our vacation in Phuket. What an amazing and stunning course! We enjoyed every minute on this course from the first to the last hole. The course is built on the lands of what once was a tin mine. As the name suggests, the soil and stone have a reddish color which... More

I am very lucky in that my job allows me to travel the world and, in that, also gives me opportunities to play on golf courses all over the globe. I have played Red Mountain several times over the last 4 years, including twice last week, and I can state categorically, without a moments hesitation, that this is my favourite... More

This is the second time in 4 years that I've played this truly magnificent course. It's a must if you're a keen golfer and in phuket. It's not cheap but you'll probably never play another course like this. A word of warning though, it's brutal if you're driving is off. I reckon I must have scared over a hundred monkeys,... More

Up and down the mountain, trees and lakes. Have to use a cart as would be impossible to move up and down the terrain. quite... More

Return visit to Rex Mountain after my first try at the course a year ago. It is one of my absolute favourite courses. A must-try for any golfer visiting Phuket. The course is in excellent condition, greens are true and consistent accross the course, and overall all facilities are very well maintained. Only downside is the cost. Green fees +... More

Love this course. Played here 3 times in a short stay. Beautiful course, great caddies. We booked via Phuket Golf Leisure. I highly recommend their service, friendly, helpful, and flexible. Helped us find specific tee times and change them at late notice. Also helped to find a good caddie. All at a lower cost than doing it yourself.

I'm a 12 handicap regular golfer and have played 50 of the top 100 golf courses in the UK & I and Red Canyon was right up with the best of them. Every hole was interesting, the views were memorable and the conditioning of the course was wonderful - the fairways, greens, tees and bunkers were all immaculate. This was... More

Husband and I played the red mountain course and found it fantastic. Husband is 20 HC and me 11 and we found it challenging but not exceptionally so. It isn't a very long course so for long hitters like us, the short par 4s and 5s can be easily reached in regulation. We had an absolutely fantastic time playing this... More
