Known as the most relaxing golf course in Phuket. Located in the centre of the island next to Red Mountain in Kathu District just 10 minutes from Phuket Town or Patong Beach the course nestles below a panoramic range of peaks, and is sandwiched between the Kathu Waterfalls and Kathu Village. The layout surrounds the largest lake on any golf course in Phuket, Crystal Lake, a massive 48 acres in size. This is an 18 hole, par 72, 6,555 yard, palm tree-lined beauty that has recently completed major re-designs and renovation upgrades.

Old golf course but still very well maintained. Very scenic and challenging. Caddies not really good, the one I had did not even clean my clubs.

I played this very nice and challenging golf course and I really loved. One problem is that few greens have different grass. This is absolutely unusual, but because of the changing and improvements they did... But what is completely inappropriate and unacceptable is the quantity of plastic that you find and see everywhere in the lakes, in the water hazards... More

Golfing with friends is always an enjoyment to me. Although I am not a pro-golfer but I can still tell the differences between the golf clubs I visited. Lock Palm Golf Club, the service was not attentive and I did not feel welcome since I was dropped off at the entrance. The locker room look newly renovated but the golf... More

Loch Palm is a beautiful course with lots of water hazards. The management and the caddies are very well organised and your buggie is queued up ready to go. Plenty of refreshment stops around the course. Caddies generally oif a good standard and always polite and cheerful.. Choice of open air and airconditioned restaurants. I have only eaten casual food... More

Wonderful round of golf, book through one of the agencies on the island as it is cheaper than directly booking with the course. Course was in excellent condition and an army of workers could be seen all over. Lots of water hazards to add to the fun and lightning fast greens. Locker room is first class.

I stayed at Loch Palm Golf Club for a week. The price and service was great. The golf course was ok and I got a great discount playing there. The hotel was very good too even if the breakfast was a little small.

This golf course is one of the best maintained in Phuket, not as difficult as its younger brother (Red Mountain) but with great views and an honest course. Played together with my wife - before mostly alone or with friends. The club restaurant is rather easygoing, but with excellent fresh draft Singha Beer - I like! - and authentic Thai... More

Is Loch Palm worth playing? Definitely. Loch Palm is truly a beautiful golf course. It has a nice layout, not beeing extremely difficult. Course is well maintained and in a pretty good condition even after daily rains. The restaurant is modest, but the food is very cheap even comparing to the small beach restaurants!

As you see from the photos posted here it is not just a golf course it is the place to be when in Phuket. The whole 18 holes run around the lake. More than that you shoot on the driving range into the lake and afterwards you see brave Thai men in swimsuits getting the balls from the bottom. At... More

Still one of my favorite courses but a little beaten up at the moment. A lot of soggy fairways so ball is dying on fairways. Greens in good shape. Beautiful setting, plenty of water/beer stops with cold towels. Caddies are knowledgeable. Good selection of food.
