"Watch out for the hidden extras..."
Quite confusing and difficult to get a booking organised, but once everything was sorted out, I found this quite a nice golf course to play. It offers up to the reasonable challenge on some of the holes: the fairways are average and the greens are average, there's nothing particularly bad about this golf course but at the same time there is nothing particularly spectacular about this course either... Caddies are excellent and know the course and greens well. Had an enjoyable lunch after golf, and the Locker Room facilities are very very good indeed... I also found the staff to be particularly helpful and very keen to make sure that you enjoy your round and enjoyed the experience... The only thing that I find particularly annoying, and it's the same with all golf courses in Phuket thesedays is that they advertise a round of golf as ,3,4,5,000+ Baht, but then tell you there is a 400 Baht charge for a caddie (which is compulsory) and a 700 Baht charge for a golf cart (which is also compulsory), and, you can no longer share a golf cart with your golfing partner it has to be one cart per person. They even go to the extent of putting up a sign at the desk stating that a Caddie tip should be 400 Baht, which I find particularly annoying as a tip is a gratuity for services rendered, not something that should be defined before the service has even been given!!!! As it turned out, I gave my caddie 500 Baht tip as she was very good indeed. Whilst this golf course is good, it should also be noted that it's a long way out in the countryside and not as convenient to get to as some of the other courses in Phuket, so I wonder why its still so expensive' Unfortunately, I find Phuket has become a bit of a golfing ripoff thesedays and as such, significantly less appealing to visit.
"Driving Range Way Past Best-by date"
Unfortunately the rain was bucketing down so a round of golf was not possible. Decided to make the most of it and go to the covered driving range. What a disappointment. Very obvious that zero money is spent on maintenance. Matts are worn through and the golf balls are totally useless - unknown brands and the dimples are just about worn off! Grass is a cabbage patch and the buildings showing wear and tear. The owners do not even seem able to afford a pot of paint! Staff were pleasant enough and kind of feel sorry for them in the circumstances. As a result of this experience I did not want to risk booking the course.
"Well... you don't have to come for the food here"
As passing by many many times at Mission hills resort, I was just very curious how the food was going going to be just like all other hotels in the neighborhood around. I was very enthusiastic, coming in at the hotel, but already finding the restaurant was quite a mission, as you need to pass the pool to come to the hotel. Finally arrived at the restaurant, the staff is not very helpful. The menu is quite a lot and the prices are normal hotel prizes, so quite expensive. The food was below standard, very blunt and not much for the prizes being asked. It is not a place to go back to and i'd rather to go to better to one of the local restaurants nearby, which have better quality, quantity and flavour.
The course is wide open! The staff greets you so friendly at the beginning of this great experience. My caddie " Lot #047" knows the game and has my play style down after the first hole. The course is in phenomenal shape! Unfortunately the Indonesian fires spoil the views around the sea shore holes 😢. None the less, it's still worth it. The restaurant has great food! This is a treat to play.
"A Very Pleasent stay"
Food great, staff very attentive anything to please you, rooms clean - starting to date a little, beds hard. On to the important part GOLF... The wife and I play golf, so great for couples that play together. Terrific course, friendly and fun caddies (thanks Dui and Nan), lots of water and sand which makes it challenging and enjoyable while enjoying the beautiful outlook out to sea. The resort has a free bus service to local beaches and towns for those times when you want to explore during the day or night for dinner and lunch outside the resort, other wise hire a motor bike if your confident with riding to see more. Overall really pleasant stay and relaxing.
