How many people can play in 1 group?
The maximum number of golfers allowed per flight is 4 at all of the courses in Phuket. Loch Palm Golf Club will allow 5 golfers in one flight provided every golfer uses a golf cart. During High Season (November - April) when the golf courses are very busy, single players or a two ball may be asked to join to make a four ball.

How much should i tip the caddie?
The general rate in Phuket is 400 baht + depending on how satisfied you are with the service provided by your caddie.

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.
