Hi everyone. I'm contemplating a golf vacation to Phuket in early 09.
I would like to stay somewhere directly on a really nice beach with relatively easy access to the various golf courses. Ideally the hotel would be within easy walking distance to restaurants.
From what I can tell, Phuket GC, Loch Palm & Red mountain seem to be clustered fairly close together inland a little NW of Phucket Town. Laguna sems to be on it's own. Blue Canyon & Mission Hills seem to be close to the airport & Thai Muang appears to be a fair bit North. I don't really have a sense as to distance/driving times.
Do any of the courses have holes directly beside the sea or with sea views. Laguna,Thai Muang, Mission Hills?
Can anyone recommend an area as a base? I would be going for at least 2 weeks so would it be advisable to split the trip and stay in 2 different locations? Any specific hotel recommendations would also be welcomed. Thanks.
