Winding its way through a former tin mine site in the heart of Phuket, Red Mountain has garnered plaudits both for the standard of golf and the stunning scenery on offer. As you might expect from its name, dramatic elevation changes are a feature of course architect Jonathan Morrow’s design: most notably at the short 17th, a plunging downhiller played to a postage stamp green surrounded by lush jungle foliage. Another downhill roller-coaster ride awaits on the closing hole, which requires canny strategic placement from tee to green.
