Phuket Golf Information FAQ
Got Questions About Phuket Golf?
When is the best time to visit Phuket for golf?
Without doubt, the best time of year for golf is from November - February/March. This is the "cool" season, although is also the peak season for visiting tourists. As such, be prepared for busy golf courses and try to plan your Phuket golf holiday well in advance.
What about the rest of the year?
You can play golf throughout the year in Phuket outside the cool season, and the weather is a mixture of very hot days, to very wet days. However, do not let this put you off as there are a number of great advantages. You can get some great deals on Phuket hotel prices and the courses are much quieter to play. April is still a "dry" month, with the rainy season not really starting until May. However, April & May are without doubt the hottest months of the year. June-August is not quite as hot, although you tend to get daily downpours. Again, do not let this put you off as they are normally short lived, and the Phuket golf courses dry out very quickly. September and October, the weather tends to be similar to that of the summer months although things tend to be drier and the weather becomes more predictable as the year wears on.
Where are the best Phuket golf course to play?
That depends on what level golfer you are, what your requirements are for playing golf. Contact our Phuket golf experts who will help you decide what the best Phuket golf course is for you to play.

What about the caddies?
Caddies are compulsory on all Phuket golf courses and are a fantastic experience. They cost around 300 baht (approximately 10 US dollars) a round, which has to be the best value for money in the world. In most cases they will carry your clubs or use a trolley. Please note it is compulsory at only a few Phuket golf courses to use a cart (Red Mountain & Mission Hills). Your caddie will be allocated upon arrival, and will look after your clubs until you tee-off and are of particular assistance for easy golf in Phuket. Always helpful with a smiling face, your caddie is another part of the unique Phuket golf experience. They mark and clean your ball, give guidance on the line of putts, and try to keep you cool when things get a bit hot during your round.
