Thai Muang Beach Golf & Marina

BLoch Palm Golf Club

Situated along the Andaman Coast, with beautiful mountains and wild forested hills as its backdrop, the impressive Thai Muang is one of Thailand’s few links’ style golf courses. It offers a fascinating challenge to high and low handicappers.

With its combination of a sandy shoreline studded with mature trees, lagoons, ponds, creeks and the sea itself, the site is impressive and the play challenging. Twelve holes feature water carries and water comes into play on another four holes. The undulating fairways are very often coupled with elevated greens that test the best of putters. You need to avoid the deep greenside bunkers to score well here.

The three finishing holes are most memorable, each of which is superb. It starts with the 16th, a reachable dogleg left Par 5, then is followed by the annoying little Par 3 17th (dubbed ‘the lady’), and finishes with the extremely difficult 18th (dubbed ‘the gem’). This 463 yard Par 4 plays along the side of a white sandy beach. Standing on the tee, you’re leaning into what is usually a two or three club wind. With out of bounds right and the Andaman Ocean left, the green seems like its miles away. For most players, this is a three shot to the green hole.

Thai Muang Beach Golf Club lies just over the bridge from Phuket Island, some 40 minutes drive from Phuket International Airport and a leisurely 75 scenic minutes from Patong Beach. While further ashore than the other Phuket Island golf courses, golfers chhosing to play at Thai Muang will be well rewarded for making the trek.

Thai Muang Beach Golf & Marina Course Guide

Hole 1

Par 4 HCP 15

After a gentle start, the hardest hole on the course takes shape on the first par 5. The fairway swerves right then left, with water on both sides off the tee, continuing to the green along the left side. Mounds complicate matters. The hole calls for tight targetting as the fairway narrows. The rough is grass of medium length — not thick, but enough to slow the clubhead.

Black 563 yards
Blue 563 yards
White 532 yards
Red 515 yards

Hole 2

Par 4 HCP 13

The fairway meanders left on this par 4, with out-of-bounds left and mounds and trees to the right. There are more conventional bunkers mixed in with the mound-bunkers around the green.

Black 563 yards
Blue 563 yards
White 532 yards

Hole 3

Par 4 HCP 5

A huge stretch of tee-to-green water lies left, behind cypress pines, with a zig-zag caddy track and mounds to the right of a fairly open fairway. The prevailing breeze off the sea carries balls towards the water. Around the tight green, there’s a winding bunker to the left.

Hole 4

Par 5 HCP 1

After a gentle start, the hardest hole on the course takes shape on the first par 5. The fairway swerves right then left, with water on both sides off the tee, continuing to the green along the left side. Mounds complicate matters. The hole calls for tight targetting as the fairway narrows. The rough is grass of medium length — not thick, but enough to slow the clubhead.

Hole 5

Par 4 HCP 11

Mounds march across the fairway on this shortish par 4, with pines along the right and more mounds and water behind the green.

Blue 563 yards
White 532 yards

Hole 6

Par 3 HCP 9

A tight par 3, with water and a bunker visible on the right and more water to the left. It’s a tiny green, with more water through the back, and a bunker and a couple of trees.

Hole 7

Par 4 HCP 3

A drive across water off the tee marks the par 4 that is the third-hardest hole. The fairway curls right, with cypress pines and mounds to the left and water on the right. Around the bend, a tree and a small mound block the path home. It’s a fairly large green, but all that can be seen is the top of the flag.

Hole 8

Par 3 HCP 17

Water cuts in and gobbles up most of the fairway from the left on this par 3. The shot is over water, with tall mounds behind the green.

Blue 563 yards
White 532 yards
Red 515 yards

Hole 9

Par 5 HCP 7

Two turns to the left are required on this par 5. The first dogleg is heavily bunkered and water takes over where the sand ends. The trees on the right are out-of-bounds. Not a long par 5 but the two-level green calls for sharp control, with the top putting surface no more than 14 feet across.

Hole 10

Par 4 HCP 6

The flag flutters enticingly in the distance on this par 4, with bunkers on both sides of the fairway and the sound of the sea being heard for the first time.

Black 563 yards
Blue 563 yards
White 532 yards

Hole 11

Par 3 HCP 10

Water replaces most of the fairway on this longish par 3. Mounds dot the rear of the reasonably-sized green and continue along the right. There’s one large bunker directly over the water.

Blue 563 yards
White 532 yards

Hole 12

Par 4 HCP 18

A par 4, easiest hole on the course. Ham-shaped water cuts in on the right, together with a long, snakey bunker. The fairway opens up to the left, with mounds and trees beyond.

White 532 yards

Hole 13

Par 5 HCP 2

A beautiful lily pond in the foregound belies the difficulty of this par 5, the second-hardest hole. Trees line both sides, with water to the left and trouble on the right.

Black 563 yards
Blue 563 yards
White 532 yards
Red 515 yards

Hole 14

Par 4 HCP 8

Closer to the sea now, this par 4 doglegs left, with out-of-bounds lying left. It’s a pretty hole, with one of the biggest greens seen so far.

Black 563 yards
Blue 563 yards
White 532 yards
Red 515 yards

Hole 15

Par 4 HCP 16

Water cuts the fairway diagonally, so firing long or short off the tee is the go. Mounds about eight feet tall lie to the right, beyond the water.

Black 563 yards
Blue 563 yards
White 532 yards
Red 515 yards

Hole 16

Par 5 HCP 14

A par 5 that doglegs left, with bunkers in the foregound. Plenty of water on the right for those who try to find the open spaces.

Black 563 yards
Blue 563 yards
White 532 yards
Red 515 yards

Hole 17

Par 3 HCP 12

A long green snakes in the distance — but first, this par 3 requires a shot across water. It’s a long walk around to the fairway but the view from the green is spectacular, with large lagoons stretching on both sides of the putting arena. With the wind off the sea, there’s never a guarantee of safety on this hole.

Black 563 yards
Blue 563 yards
White 532 yards
Red 515 yards

Hole 18

Par 4 HCP 4

The fourth hardest hole, a par four, runs parallel to the long beach, heading straight home. Mounds and bunkers lie right, with one big fairway bunker on the left. There are also some rough-laden indentations near the green, of the kind that the Scots do so well.
