Red Mountain Golf Club
Winding its way through a truly dramatic 1,400 rai former tin mine site in the heart of Phuket, Red Mountain is surely one of Asia's most exciting new courses. The course has been cleverly routed to take advantage of a huge variety of landforms and dizzying elevation changes. Scars left from the tin mine era have been imaginatively incorporated into the overall scheme, creating a unique character at the same time as establishing an indelible link with an important era in the island's past.
Designer Jon Morrow and co-designer Al Tikkanen, have created a highly strategic and challenging 6,900 yard layout to complement the shorter and gentler old Loch Palm Course. While the course is undoubtedly challenging, numerous risk and reward options create a fun playing environment, an exhilarating test of golf and a breathtaking scenic tour around a course destined to become a golfing landmark in the region.
