Excellent Golf Course!
Mar 2020 • Friends
We (4) have played at Phuket Country Club twice. The golf course and the club house are well maintained. The staff were friendly and helpful. The caddy was knowledgeable about the golf greens.

Good course layout but with bad condition. Food was good !
Nov 2019
Played Phuket Country Club on Nov 19 with my wife. Course layout is good suitable for players of different levels. Staff was friendly and helpful. Can't give a better rating due to the conditions of the fairways and greens. Fairways were covered with cow grass that were cut long. So all shots were played like in the rough even on fairway. Greens were very slow. You have to put very hard in order to sink your ball into the hole. My caddie was good but the one for my wife wasn't very good, not to friendly and proactive advising my wife.
The positive point about the club was its restaurant. Food was very tasty and with good price.

Nice course right on the doorstep of our rented villa
Mar 2019 • Family
We were staying in one of the very nice villas alongside the 15th fairway and enjoyed a nice early morning round last Saturday 16th. I think this is the oldest golf course in Phuket and whilst it isn't as good as Red Mountain and the Blue Canyon courses, it's a good test. Condition was good given that evident lack of rain and the greens were nice and true, if a little slow..

Great value for big families
Mar 2019 • Family
We had booked out 2 villas as we were sharing with my siblings, their partners and kids. Plus my mum, aunties and uncle. All together there was 16 of us in a 10 bedroom villa (2 x 5 bedroom villas next door to each other). Villas are huge! Great space! Every room has an ensuite plus a toilet downstairs. Kitchen is great, had everything you need. We only used it to cook breakfast. The cleaners are lovely. We didn't have a laundry room in our villas, so the cleaners do it for you.. so we just tipped them. Owner Jason was good until we had an issue with working one of the oven. He replied back with 'I've never used it so I cant help you' and 'all the other guests used it with out a problem'. So my brother asked one of the workers the next day and it turned out there was an electric fault lol. Was fixed straight away. There are stairs!! It a 3 storey villa so please remember that there are stairs!! Location was good for us. We stayed in patong and didn't like the smell and constant business (we had babies with us). Villas are about 10-15mins from patong.

Great views, but fairways are not closely mowed
Nov 2018 • Solo
I played the Phuket Country Club Old Course in mid-November. One of the challenges is that the course is fairly hilly, but does not allow for carts to be used. However, you are required to hire a caddy - which is in line with all the other golf courses in the area. The caddy was very friendly and knowledgeable about the course, while the English ended at the golf terms.
The reason I am not scoring higher for PCC is that the fairways were not cut short. There was almost no difference between the length of the grass on the fairways and the rough. While the rough was also not long, that took any roll out of shots with longer clubs.
Also, be diligent about drinking plenty of water early on. Since I did not follow this, I go dehydrated towards the end of the round and struggled to keep me concentration and hit the ball long.
Overall, it was a pleasant experience, while I would encourage that the club would allow the use of carts at those hot temperatures for foreigners that are not used to the heat.

Beautiful course and great caddies - clubhouse and back room staff needs work
Dec 2018 • Couples
Played 18 holes at the 9 hole Country Club course, this course allows carts unlike its sister new course. The course is stunning, beautiful water features to overcome, bunkers are plentiful and the greens and fairways are in brilliant condition. Have to comment that the caddies really know their stuff, even though they don’t necessarily play. Correct club pulled out before you’ve even decided, exactly the lie of the green and where to aim, and how hard to hit the ball on each shot. Following their instruction is another thing!
The backroom is where this is let down. Clubhouse looks tired, no real outside bar to sit at overlooking the course after a stunning round, just a weird 1970s pool to sit at or inside the clubhouse. No Wi-fi, which isn’t a deal breaker but is unusual nowadays. The staff are contactable by email however after about 10am you won’t get a response until the next day no matter how many times you email. Try calling and you will be passed from pillar to post and then hung up on! If planning a visit be sure to email and have it all arranged well in advance. There is NO negotiation on price which seems strange for Thailand, and also strange for clubs where hardly anyone seems to be playing, however this is the norm at golf clubs world over I find.
So, get yourself sorted well in advance, organise the transport with them and pay the price on the website and you will have a great time. Cheapest way to play golf in Phuket by far - half the all in cost of other courses in Phuket.

Great Day of Golf
Jul 2018 • Couples
My girlfriend an I played on a weekday and we had a great time. We had visited the day before and had lunch and decided to make a booking for the next day. The rent clubs and shoes. Great selection of both so that was nice to not have to buy a set of shoes somewhere.

The course was in good shape and beautiful. The green were a little slow due the greens being recently punched, it looks like so they were a little shaggy but playable. The caddies were polite and very professional and they know there way around the greens.

Best of all was the hospitality of the all the staff from the moment we walked in to the time we left. Not PGA tour course quality but a very enjoyable course. I would return there if given the chance.

Enjoyable experience
Jul 2018 • Friends
Played golf here with a friend. Course is in good condition although they had just cored and sanded the greens. Plenty of water with it in play on quite a few holes. Pretty course, some good holes and not particularly long so all abilities can play. Caddies are good, just listen to what they tell you especially on the greens. They made it fun (thanks to Noi and Julie) and looked after us well. Good clubs for hire, latest Taylor made M4 and Callaway options. Just check the shaft on driver. I didn't and it was way too soft but my fault. Clubhouse a bit tired although changing rooms nice and new. All in all enjoyed it.

Great course
Feb 2018 • Friends
Apparently the oldest course on Phuket, and built on the former tin mine, PCC is a very relaxed club and generally not too busy. Some of the holes are quite challenging but good for the mid ability golfer. I’ve played it several times and have always had an enjoyable round. Like all Phuket courses it’s not cheap but you can easily save 30% or more with on line booking.
