Prominent golf magazines have rated the Canyon Course as one of the most renowned championship courses in Asia. Having seen the feet of many of the best golfers in the world tread her greens as they test their skill, nerves, patience and luck against each other, the Canyon Course has rightly earned her place amongst the best golf courses in Asia.
The Canyon Course is the winner of several prominent awards, including the "Asian & Pacific Golf Course of the Year 1999" (Hertz International Golf Travel Awards). It staged the Honda Invitational in 1996 and was the first course to play host to the prestigious Johnnie Walker Classics Tournament twice; first in 1994 which saw Greg Norman set the Canyon Course record as he climbed back on top to rank as world number one, then again in 1998 which saw Ernie Els defeated in a playoff on the final hole with Tiger Woods after he staged one of the most astounding comebacks championship golf has witnessed.
Architect Yoshikazu Kato took great care to mould his design ideas for the Canyon Course around the natural environment of Phuket Island, making use of the natural woodlands and topography of the land. The result is a striking, organic design, giving a feeling of unperturbed spontaneity to the intimidating natural hazards and the lush fairways.
The Canyon Course features 80 bunkers and water at 10 of its holes as well as plenty of narrow tree-lined fairways, several dog-legs, narrow landing areas and well guarded, slick Bermuda Tifdwarf greens to challenge even the most proficient golfers. Add to this the natural woodlands and roll of the turf, the rough which can punish severely all who accidentally stray there and its par 3, award winning 17th hole, and you have a course which has become one of Asia's most sought after golf destinations.
