Blue Canyon Country Club Golf Course Phuket Thailand.
Blue Canyon Country Club has been constantly recognized as a world championship golf course has been ranked as Thailand's number one golf club for many years. The course became most famous when it became selected as the venue to host the 1994 Johnnie Walker Classic. The par 72 golf course is known for being one of the best layouts in Asia. Designer Architect Yoshikazu Kato took great care to design the Blue Canyon Phuket around the natural island landscape, using the natural hazards, woodlands and rubber plantations causing minimal disturbance to the natural environment. Definitely one of the jewels of the Phuket golf scene and the back nine holes quoted by many golfers as possibly the best in Thailand. Phuket Canyon’s course slick Bermuda Tifdwarf greens are well guarded by as many as 80 course bunkers along with numerous water hazards. Narrow tree-lined fairways, several dog-legs long with beautifully manicured fairways, make this course to be one of Asia's most visited golfing destination. The famous Par 4 13th over a huge canyon needs a good drive selecting the right club in the wind can be treacherous, the following Par 3 14th from an elevated tee to an island green is one of the most beautiful. The 17th is an award winner, one of the most intimidating Par 3’ from the white tees you’ll find in any golfing destination. For most players it’s a long iron or fairway wood to a partially hidden green.

Blue Canyon has an excellent club house, with 3 restaurants, luxurious clean changing rooms, massage and spa, and golf resort for the golfer looking for an all inclusive golf holiday. Whether you stay and play or just play the Blue Canyon Golf Club is an ideal choice for a Phuket golf vacation. The Canyon Course has staged the Honda Invitational in 1996, it was the first course to host the Johnnie Walker Classic golf tournaments, first seeing Greg Norman set the course record and climb back to number one in the world rankings. And where a young Tiger Woods staged an unbelievable comeback in a play off with Ernie Els in 1998 to win the Championship. It is also the winner of several prominent awards, including the "Asian & Pacific Golf Course of the Year 1999" (Hertz International Golf Travel Awards).
