Absolute treat to play here, more forgiving and thus providing an enjoyable day out for golfers of all handicap ranges. Well designed course, great caddies and pro shop service.

JAH Villa is a modern, and spacious villa. The one story, three building house with large pool is inside the entrance to the very upmarket Loch Palm and Red Mountain Golf Clubs, and is approximately mid-way between Patong Beach and The Central Festival complex outside of Phuket Town. The villa is very comfortable. It has a private and very secluded... More

This is actually a great course in superb condition. The holes are interesting with quite a bit of water and quite a few holes with elevation changes. It is scenic too. Yes, Red Mountain is "better" but it's als a very different type of course. I would actually rate this course nearly at par with Red Mountain, it's just that... More

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
