The legendary Blue Canyon Country Club in Phuket, Thailand
In 1988, Yoshikazu Kato, one of Japan’s most prolific golf course architects started developing the site, originally an abandoned tin mine flanked by rubber plantations. Both courses were created around existing canyons and woodlands, with minimal interruption to the natural landscape and wildlife. The property is a masterpiece of design characterized by spectacular and daunting natural hazards including numerous water features accentuated by towering trees to challenge golfers of all levels.
The Blue Canyon Country Club rose to fame when the canyon course was selected for the Johnnie Walker Classic and is the only three-time host of the Johnnie Walker Classic in 1994, 1998 & 2007.
It ranks as one of the most distinguished and prestigious championship courses in Asia. The striking masterpiece is sculpted with minimal disruption to the original landscape of an abandoned tin mine flanked by rubber plantations. Unveiled in December 1991, the award-winning Canyon Course has since been the ultimate experience for many golfers.
Located about 10 minutes from Phuket International airport. It takes about 40 minutes by car from Phuket city.
