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

Among all the courses in Phuket, I would rank this one as number three, after the sister course "Red Mountain" and the famous course "Blue Canyon". Well organized, good proshop, good caddies and well maintained greens and fairways. A bit mountainous, keep in mind, if you want to walk the whole course without electro-cart in hot days. It is the... More

A stunning course layout, without being overly testing (unless of course one's shots are offline, in which case you're sure to find one or more of the dozens of lakes). No two holes look the same. One unfortunate aspect is that barely two greens feel, nor putt the same! If only the greens were consistent, and true, and reasonably fast... More

Nice golf course in Phuket, right next to Red Mountain, so close to Patong where we stayed. The layout is magnificent with some challenging holes and plenty water. The fairways were in good condition, but the greens were very slow. Good for landing on it, but not so great for putting. There are plenty watering/ice places, which was good since... More

I visit the island annually with the family for R&R and have always included 1-2 golf games in my trip. After trying all the courses on the island, Loch palm is my favourite. Its not as tight as the next door red mountain and has a great mix of water, Forrest and mountain holes. The driving range is conveniently located... More
