Blue Canyon Country Club
Blue Canyon Country Club in Phuket
As one of Asia's premier tourist destinations with nice weather and natural beauty, Phuket is home to a great many fine golf courses. Some are immaculately maintained country clubs worthy of professionals, while others are more appropriate for casual players just looking for a fun day out. Either way, Phuket has something that is sure to fit the bill. Blue Canyon Country Club is the most prestigious golf club in Phuket.
Just over 20 years old, the course itself is on the northeastern coast of the island and is about 40 minutes away from the main tourist hub of Patong. The course itself is both beautiful and challenging, and has been home to several major competitions. Tiger Woods himself has played on the course several times, including when he won the 1998 Asian Championship. More recently, in 2007, Blue Canyon Country Club hosted the Johnnie Walker Classic, proving that Championship golf in Phuket is well and truely alive.
The Blue Canyon Country Club is set in an abandoned tin mine, making excellent use of the unique topography that this has created. The course is challenging and fun. Several of its holes are sure to be favorites for many golfers, especially the particularly challenging 11th-15th holes, which is possibly one of the best five hole stretches on any course in the whole region.
