The legendary Blue Canyon Country Club in Phuket, Thailand is ranked by international media as one of the most prestigious golfing establishments in the region.
Cradled in a 720-acre verdant valley against a magnificent backdrop of the majestic Phang Nga mountains and the Andaman Sea, Blue Canyon offers two award-winning championship golf courses, “Canyon Course” built in 1991 and “Lakes Course” in 1999, complete with boutique spa resort and comfortable clubhouse facilities.
Established in 1999, the Lakes Course has water hazards coming in to play on 17 out of 18 holes. The course is a mixture of water-filled canyons created by open cast mining with its natural land flow left relatively unchanged. Its front 9 holes run through a landscape of lakes and original canyons, whilst the back 9 weaves around more scenic lakes and soft whispering woodlands of rubber trees.
Architect Yoshikazu Kato masterfully provided an inspiring alternative to Blue Canyon’s myriad of golfing challenges. From the championship tees, this is a 7,129-yard challenge with target-driving areas set at 270 yards to accommodate today’s long hitting professionals. With a range of five sets of tees to choose from, it is capable of challenging the best players in the world, although even modest players can enjoy this course with wide fairways and generous greens.
Created by renowned architect Yoshikazu Kato in February 1999, the Lakes Course is a 7,129 yard championship marvel with 270 yard target driving areas capable of challenging the best players in the world.
The Blue Canyon Country Club rose to fame when the canyon course was selected for the Johnnie Walker Classic and is the only three-time host of the Johnnie Walker Classic in 1994, 1998 & 2007
