Koh Samui is one of the newest Thailand golf destinations and has had the honor of having a world class golf resort on its shores since 2003. The island’s first course, already has become recognized as one of Thailand’s best.
With the addition of the Royal Samui Golf & Country Club, Koh Samui’s second championship golf course, Koh Samui is now a real competitor and viable alternative golf destination to it’s famous neighboring island of Phuket. Located a top a mountain in the Lamai Beach area, Royal Golf & Country Club is another course with spectacular views overlooking Chaweng, Lamai, the surrounding islands, and even the Thai mainland from practically every point on the golf course. Needless to say, the Royal Samui golf course is challenging and you might want to plan on more than one round before posting a decent score.
Another course, the beautifully designed 9 hole par 3 layout at Bophut Hills Country Club opened in Bophut in 2007. Bophut Hills Country Club is a true professional bit of fun. It well suited for holidaymakers staying in one of the main tourist areas, beginners or groups with both golfers and non-golfers, as well as more serious golfers who would like to fine tune their iron play before heading to one of the championship Koh Samui golf courses.
The good thing about golf in Koh Samui is that all these courses are easy to get to from any of the island’s main beach areas. Hire clubs, equipment and all golf accessories can be purchases or rented on site, assuring that golf on Koh Samui is one of the most relaxing and convenient destinations to visit on a Thailand golf vacation.
