Known as the most relaxing golf course in Phuket. Located in the centre of the island next to Red Mountain in Kathu District just 10 minutes from Phuket Town or Patong Beach the course nestles below a panoramic range of peaks, and is sandwiched between the Kathu Waterfalls and Kathu Village. The layout surrounds the largest lake on any golf course in Phuket, Crystal Lake, a massive 48 acres in size. This is an 18 hole, par 72, 6,555 yard, palm tree-lined beauty that has recently completed major re-designs and renovation upgrades.

I stayed at Loch Palm Golf Club for a week. The price and service was great. The golf course was ok and I got a great discount playing there. The hotel was very good too even if the breakfast was a little small.

This golf course is one of the best maintained in Phuket, not as difficult as its younger brother (Red Mountain) but with great views and an honest course. Played together with my wife - before mostly alone or with friends. The club restaurant is rather easygoing, but with excellent fresh draft Singha Beer - I like! - and authentic Thai... More

Is Loch Palm worth playing? Definitely. Loch Palm is truly a beautiful golf course. It has a nice layout, not beeing extremely difficult. Course is well maintained and in a pretty good condition even after daily rains. The restaurant is modest, but the food is very cheap even comparing to the small beach restaurants!

As you see from the photos posted here it is not just a golf course it is the place to be when in Phuket. The whole 18 holes run around the lake. More than that you shoot on the driving range into the lake and afterwards you see brave Thai men in swimsuits getting the balls from the bottom. At... More

Still one of my favorite courses but a little beaten up at the moment. A lot of soggy fairways so ball is dying on fairways. Greens in good shape. Beautiful setting, plenty of water/beer stops with cold towels. Caddies are knowledgeable. Good selection of food.

Full disclosure I did not play well here but I did have a hole in one which made up for everything! Very solid championship course with plenty of variety and a lovely lakeside location. From the back it's long....The course was in very nice shape and the staff very friendly!

I am used to golfing Bangkok two or three times a week at many different courses. When compared to Bangkok considering the condition and lay out of the course the price was extremely excessive. The course is in fair condition, plenty of nice views, I am glad I played it once.

Lovely course and well maintained. Beautiful views. Not the most demanding of courses but ideal for a nice round with friends. Caddies and all staff very helpful and nice shop. All in all very pleasurable.
