General information about Phuket
Phuket, a rain forested, mountainous island in the Andaman Sea, has some of Thailand’s most popular beaches, mostly situated along the clear waters of the western shore.
The island is home to many high-end seaside resorts, spas and restaurants. Phuket City, the capital, has old shop houses and busy markets. Patong, the main resort town, has many nightclubs, bars and discos.
Green fees are generally higher than the rest of Thailand and on a par with those of other countries but the pleasure of playing these courses is usually well worth the expense.
There is no need to show handicap cards at any of Phuket's golf courses. Dress code is not strict but most clubs expect visitors to wear golf shirts with collars, short or long trousers, socks and golf shoes.
Generally spike-less shoes or soft spikes are required. These can be hired at the courses as can brand name golf clubs.
All of the golf courses in Phuket require caddies and some of them buggies but this is more to do with the topography and heat than making money.
