Located just 20 minutes from pattaya city, Phoenix Gold Golf & Country Club is a 27-hole course with both ocean and mountain views. Consisting of 3 courses each with its own unique features, Phoenix Gold Golf & Country Club is an iconic golf club in southern Thailand.
The Mountain and Ocean Courses were completed in mid 2015 and have seen work done on the bunkers, tee tops, fairways and drainage which have produced technical improvements, while not significantly changing the look of these courses.
By comparison, the Lakes course has seen an exciting, major re-design, with several holes re-routed and new lakes, tee boxes and greens being introduced. Designed by Pirapon Namatra of GolfEast, major changes have been made to Hole 5 and Hole 6 to make it the most interesting course.
Phoenix Gold Golf & Country Club also has a spacious clubhouse, fully stocked proshop, driving range, and restaurant serving both Thai and international cuisine to satisfy all golfers.
The Mountain Course affords the golfer an exquisite view of a famous landmark, with the best vantage point being the fairway of the signature 6th hole. A nearby mountain, with a large sheer-cliff face that is easily seen, has an impressive laser-carved image of Buddha. The 3-dimensional quality of The Mountain Course’s fairways tests the golfers’ interest and judgment of each stroke. The greens are designed to provide opportunities to show the golfers’ putting skills.
The Ocean Course is often a favorite with many golfers of all abilities. Many of its fairways are lined with mature trees on both sides. Its recent upgrade has seen much of the lower shrubs and redundant trees being cleared to allow the golfers view to the beautiful distant mountains to the north and the ocean to the east. Also, additional bunkers have been added while existing bunkers have been redesigned with graceful contours. The Ocean Course gradually rises in elevation from holes #4 to #6 and looking back the golfer can catch glimpses of the surrounding countryside. Completing the round from the signature 9th hole is memorable, with a dramatic panoramic view from the tee box over the of the Gulf of Thailand making for a perfect way to end the day.
The Lakes Course has always challenged golfers to manage their game sensibly - keeping drives on line and finding good layup positions for an approach to the green.
The new Lakes layout will remain true to this, but will add new hole layouts, changed tee positions and a few all-new greens to make life just that much more fun and challenging!
