Where2Golf says: 

Loch Palm Golf Club: In danger of being overshadowed by its exciting and relatively new companion course (Red Mountain GC), Loch Palm is still one of Phuket's most popular and enjoyable layouts. Nestling beneath a panoramic range of jungle-clad hills, Loch Palm is easier-going and less undulating than the newcomer. But make no mistake, it too throws down many challenges and will giving your overall game a thorough workout.

On the front-nine your main objective will be keeping the golf ball on dry land. Many holes are played alongside the loch (a sizeable lake), which has a habit of cutting across some of the gently undulating fairways. The short par-5 2nd is one of many holes that will test your nerve around water. A significant amount of large and open bunkering also comes into play, and if you should be too wayward, then a significantly growing amount of perimeter real estate might enter the firing line as well.

The back-nine has some tighter and more undulating holes, starting with the short but testing downhill par-4 10th. The equally tight and challenging par-5 11th has many new villas flanking the leftside of the hole - be ready to shout "Fore!". Among several excellent holes on the back-nine, one of the best is the par-3 14th, played downhill to a green surrounded on three sides by water.

As the club's name suggests, the impressive loch features prominently in proceedings, while palm trees are liberally dotted around this parkland layout, although never too densely.

Did you know?

The MBK golf group boasts four championship golf courses: adjacent to each other in Bangkok are Bangkok GC and Riverdale GC, while adjacent to each other in Phuket are Red Mountain GC and Loch Palm GC.

In deference to golf's Scottish origins, the very sizeable lake here is referred to as the Loch; adorning its banks and lining the neighbouring fairways are many palm trees (hence Loch Palm). The loch was originally created as a result of substantial open-cast mining for tin. The club logo suggests that a Thai cousin of Scotland's famous Loch Ness monster might inhabit the deep waters of Loch Palm!
