The 18-hole Mission Hills Phuket Golf Resort & Spa was designed by Jack Nicklaus and opened in 2004. It combines all the features akin to the designer - strategic waste bunkers and lots of water hazards. The course is 6,308 yards off the blue tees, or 6,009 yards off the whites. Although situated in a beautiful waterfront location on the east coast of Phuket facing Phang Nga Bay, the wind can provide some extra challenges for golfers. The course has two greens right on the waterfront, another hole with a double green and a finishing hole with a choice of two greens.
Facilities include a 72-room resort, swimming pool, spa, Jacuzzi, well-stocked library, conference rooms, banqueting facilities and a gymnasium. Both the Nibblers Bar and Lounge and the Patio Café overlook Phang Nga Bay and serve both Thai and International food. There is a driving range, equipment rental and a pro shop.
