The legendary Blue Canyon Country Club in Phuket is amongst the most prestigious and exclusive golfing establishments in Asia. Blue Canyon Country Club offers two award-winning 18-hole championship golf courses, the Canyon Course built in 1991, and the Lakes Course, built in 1999. The Canyon Course has hosted many international tournaments including the Johnnie Walker Classic in 1994 & 1998 and the Honda Invitational in 1996.
Developed in 1988 from an abandoned tin mine and rubber plantations the Canyon Course is carved into lush landscape surrounded by freshwater lakes, and boasts some 14 water hazards, a selection of demanding Par 3's and large, fast undulating greens with a mix of narrow tree-lined fairways and a number of doglegs.
The back 9 provides some especially challenging holes. The "signature" 13th hole requires a tee shot across a wide canyon and selecting a line within your capabilities is important. The Par 3 14th has a drop in elevation of 40 ft from the tee to an island green and may require 1 or even 2 clubs less than normal. Fred Couples described the 17th as "one of the best par 3's in golf ".At over 200 yards in length with a canyon running along the right hand side all the way to a sloping hidden green, a par here will be well earned.
The Blue Canyon Clubhouse offers hospitality on par with the club's world-class golf courses including, Professional Golf Shop offering the latest in golf equipment and apparel and two restaurants serving international cuisine and Thai specialties.
Stay & Play Packages are also available at Blue Canyon Country Club with 32 tastefully furbished rooms and suites fully equipped with all the modern amenities for your total comfort.
