Koh Samui is Host to two of the most unique courses in Thailand. Breathtaking views of surrounding coastline make this a golfers paradise.

Koh Samui golf courses are both in easy reach of all hotels and beach resorts, golf course information is available regarding Santiburi Samui Country Club which is currently the only 18 hole golf course in Koh Samui and has earned its nickname as the beast of Samui. The course was opened in 2003 and is truly a master piece in design, located on the mountain slopes on the North Coast of Maenam, offering exceptional views of the gulf of Thailand and Koh Phanghan island, definitely worth visiting. Golf carts are compulsory here, small fairways often winding uphill and down, but the large sized greens make the approach shots a little easier. Spectacular views over the coconut palm tree covered mountains do affect concentration but its all hard to take in during your first round.

Royal Samui Golf & Country Club 9 hole golf course is located between Chaweng and Lamai, although the route to this course has not been concreted, 4 wheel drive vehicles are recommended for safety. When you finally arrive at Royal Samui on the top of the furthest point of the mountain, you realise that this really is a little gem. The views are absolutely breathtaking with sea views on all 9 holes, the 8th tee is built on a rock face and has a view of Lamai beach that would have most top golf courses in the world wishing they could replicate this particular hole. Golf courses in Koh Samui are mountainous and having a golf cart is a necessary.
