When is the best time to visit Phuket?
November to April is high season in Phuket when you are guaranteed good weather.
In Low Season (May-October) you are more likely to have rain at sometime, but the courses are less crowded and hotels considerably cheaper.
What is the weather like?
The weather is hot all year round. Average temperatures in High Season are 32C and 30C in Low Season.
Will my green fee be refunded if it rains?
Rain storms are generally heavy but short. Drainage on all courses is very good, so play
can continue quickly. If you are unable to complete your round due to persistent
heavy rain rains checks for 9 or 18 holes will be issued by the golf course
depending on how many holes you have completed. No cash refunds will be issued
and rain checks are for green fees only. No refund will be made for caddy fees
or rental equipment.
