Thai Muang Beach Golf & Marina: GOLF COURSE WAS CLOSED IN 2011, on a permanent basis.

[Original Where2Golf description]: Here at Thai Muang, which sits just above Phuket, Perry Dye has crafted an intriguing golf course. Laid out on essentially flat and relatively open terrain alongside the majestic Andaman Sea, the layout contains many of the Dye-family's characteristic hallmarks. You may have to wait until the 17th and 18th holes for full-on views of the ocean, but prior to that the course serves up many challenging and entertaining holes.

The plentiful and varied array of bunkering will potentially play its part in proceedings, not least with several large sandy waste areas flanking the fairways. Dye has sculpted two wonderful par-3s (at 8 and 11), where small pot bunkers nestle in extravagant earthmounding, creating something of a grassy lunar landscape. At the 8th the bunkers are grass, on the 11th they are sand, and in both cases they are railway sleepered. It is rumoured there are more railway sleepers here than on the entire Singapore-Bangkok railroad!

Most Dye-designs are incomplete without water, and sure enough ponds and small lakes threaten on many occasions. At the long par-4 7th, a meagre sliver of fairway provides little comfort when weighed up against the wide and threatening water hazard that sits alongside it.

With a raft of design features incorporated into this always challenging layout, one hopes the renovation of Thai Muang will bring it back to its original "must play" status for golf visitors to Phuket.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.

Golf Son Gual

Golf Son Gual is home to a course frequently rated the No.1 layout on the holiday island of Mallorca. Opening for play in 2007, this Thomas Himmel design combines the openness of a links-style layout with the stylish bunkering and not infrequent water hazards more typically associated with parkland courses.

Son Gual is located just a few kilometres from Palma (Mallorca). Palma's Old City shows clear influences from the city's Arab past.
