Blue Canyon Country Club

Opened in 1991.

The legendary Blue Canyon Country Club in Phuket is amongst the most prestigious and exclusive golfing establishments in Asia. Blue Canyon Country Club offers two award-winning 18-hole championship golf courses, the Canyon Course built in 1991, and the Lakes Course, built in 1999. .

Developed in 1988 from an abandoned tin mine and rubber plantation the Canyon Course is carved into lush landscape surrounded by freshwater lakes, and boasts some 14 water hazards, a selection of demanding Par 3s and large, fast undulating greens with a mix of narrow tree-lined fairways and several doglegs.

The back 9 provides some especially challenging holes. The "signature" 13th hole requires a tee shot across a wide canyon and selecting a line within your capability is important. The Par 3 14th has a drop in elevation of 40 ft from the tee to an island green and may require 1 or even 2 clubs less than normal. Fred Couples described the 17th as "one of the best par 3,s in golf ".At over 200 yards in length with a canyon running along the right hand side all the way to a sloping hidden green, a par here will be well earned.
