The course was not difficult but was very pretty. Everyone must have a caddy (all caddies are women), not sure why... We played 9 holes in one hour. The course arranged a taxi to pick us up and had the rental club selection in the back for me to pick before we left for the course. Upon arrival we were... More

wrapping around a huge lake, this course is scenically appealing. not a long course but plenty to challenge. There are better courses like Red Mountain and Blue Canyon, but i would also recommend a game here

Went golfing with my brother and we had a great time, course was great and views sensational , we got a cart and caddy also, at first felt a bit strange having a caddy do everything but once you got used to this it was great fun. Good interaction from the caddy and they spoke good English .

As the title suggests, lovely island golf course. Many water hazards, challenging holes and plenty of variation. Tip - bring plenty of extra money along to stop off at the 'pit stop' bars along the course for a beer or too....and to tip your caddy at the end of the round!

The course is in great condition and has been improving every year. 4th green has been rebuilt and is now a tough par 3 depending on pin placement as the green falls off to water on 3 sides. 14th signature island green is great fun with terrific views.

A well conditioned course with some memorable holes. Great caddies and facilities. Not the best course in Phuket, but definitely above average.

This course is okay, its something I really did enjoy and certainly dont regret. In saying that though they just kind of miss the mark on what I would expect for this sort of green fee. Full disclosure I am rather picky when it comes to golf, but for a 150 dollar green fee one comes to expect little things... More

We played there this morning and was expecting it to be better. I guess I was comparing it to Red Mountain which is far far superior. The carts are old and badly maintained and the caddies are not up to the mark. They are so busy talking non stop among themselves and hardly pay any attention to the players or... More

We played at both Loch Palm Golf Club and Red Mountain Golf Club during our recent visit on 13 - 15 Feb 2014. Enjoyed our golf games thorougly at both but strangely, I personally find Loch Palm more challenging than Red Mountain.

The Loch Palm golf course since its upgrading is simply one of the best courses in Asia. I would rate it a close second to its sister course Red Mountain, although if you are looking for a less stressful round of golf, I would pick Loch Palm. The condition of the course is outstanding, greens, fairways, bunkers, waterways. It is... More
