Phuket
Thailand’s largest island is an international magnet for beach lovers and serious divers, who enthusiastically submerge themselves in the Andaman Sea. Blue lagoons and salmon sunsets make for a dream-like atmosphere, and indeed, a vacation here can feel a bit surreal. Watersports are the most popular activities, though once you’ve had enough sun there’s still plenty to explore at the island’s aquariums, gardens, and Buddhist temples.

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. less

DescriptionFootball Crazy Golf is a fantastic, fun game that is perfect for anyone of any age. The purpose built 18 Hole, 69 Par course is ideal for a family outing and just excellent for groups of friends wanting a laugh-a-minute experience. Basically, Football Crazy Golf has the same rules as a normal game of golf (although not quite as strict!) but instead of clubs and a golf ball, you kick a football around the course, with the aim to getting it into our custom sized 'big' holes in the least amount of shots. Simply put, it's an absolute great way to spend an hour or two outside in the tropical climate, with family or friends, having a laugh...! Come along to Football Crazy Golf in Kathu, Phuket and get named or shamed on our leader board or even try for a hole-in-one whilst enjoying refreshments that are available all day. Currently the only Football Golf course in Phuket, this specially designed course means that anyone can play, regardless of experience, size or age so if you've been looking for a load of fun, get yourself down to Football Crazy Golf, we're sure you'll want to come back again and again. less
