Loch Palm Golf Club

A long-time local favorite for its unique, fun & fair design

While Loch Palm Golf Club may not boast the longest fairways among Phuket's golf courses, its reputation for being one of the most enjoyable and consistently challenging is well-deserved. Nestled amidst jungle-clad hills, Loch Palm offers a natural course that presents numerous challenges, ensuring a thorough workout for any Phuket golfer. True to its name, palm trees grace the parkland layout, creating a picturesque setting without overcrowding.

On the front nine, the focus is on keeping the ball on dry land, with many holes running alongside the loch, a substantial lake that occasionally intersects the gently undulating fairways. The short yet nerve-testing 2nd hole is just one example of the challenges posed by water hazards. The par-5 2nd hole features extensive bunkering, requiring strategic play to avoid the perimeter or, worse, out-of-bounds.

The back nine introduces tighter and more undulating holes, starting with the challenging downhill par-4 10th. The narrow and demanding par-5 11th is flanked by villas on the left, demanding caution and the occasional 'Fore!'. Among the standout holes on the back nine is the 14th, a breathtaking downhill par-3 with water surrounding the green on three sides.

Optional golf carts add convenience, and the course consistently maintains top-notch playing conditions. The clubhouse, renovated in 2008, mirrors the quality found in other Phuket golf courses, offering excellent Thai cuisine at reasonable prices. Loch Palm Golf Club invites golf enthusiasts to experience a harmonious blend of natural beauty and challenging play on its well-crafted course.
