“Not your average golf course”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2013

Set in the hills of Koh Samui, this is a tight and challenging golf course. If you are an average golfer, your woods will need to stay in the bag, as the course has been set up so that you need to think your way around rather than getting a long drive off the tee. Views are spectacular, but for the cost of a round here, plus club hire, and the 4wd to get there( it was almost 3000thb), I'm sure that you would prefer to sit on the beach and have a few beers. But if you really like a challenge, then this is a great challenging course to play.

“Amazing course”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2013

This is a stunning course. We played here with a fairly large group and had an amazing time, none of us are serious golfers but we hacked our way through the course and were blown away by the beauty of the course and the stunning views of the island. The holes are fairly short but quite challenging, the course is quite well maintained and fun to drive around. They also provided us with some eskys on the golf buggies to keep our beer cold which was much appreciated! If you're a serious player I can understand that you might have some complaints about the course but if you're a casual player looking to have a fun hit-around then you won't be disappointed.

If you are a serious golfer do not bother to play this course. Driver or long woods cannot be used. Blind holes and its badly designed to make it a frustrating day. All the golfers at our hotel had the same view. Cannot beleive the reviews must be connected to the club. My advise avoid at all costs.

“Drought Stricken but Fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2013

The course was dry due to the weather, but it was great fun. Very tight and short and a bit rough around the edges, but carved from the jungle. Views were spectactular on several holes.Fun and very reasonably priced for 9 holes

“Challenging and fab views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2013

I do not play golf but my friend does and he wanted a round here. There are 9 holes set in some of the lushest terrain I have seen on a golf course. There are more traps and ravines than you can shake a stick at. The buggy was fun to drive in the mountainous terrain and I took some great photos while we moved around. There is a small open air drinks area and a small shop. The hill climb to get to this course is a bit daunting but well worth the trip.
