Why are caddies mandatory at golf clubs in Thailand?
Most golfers are pleased that caddies are available to assist them pulling their golf clubs around the course especially in the heat. Besides providing employment for local ladies, the caddies also provide the necessary maintenance such as filling in the divots with sand, raking bunkers and reporting any problems on the course.

It is a rule and regulation of every golf course in Phuket that each golfer must be accompanied by at least one caddie and as such there can be no flexibility with this.

Caddie fee in most of the golf courses in Phuket is 400 Baht.
What should I expect of my caddie?
Most of all, your caddie should be friendly and polite. She should be able to assist you with the basic yardages, let you know where the hazards are and be able to give some indication as to how a putt will break on the greens. She should also keep pace with you and do the basic maintenance such as fill in divots with sand, rake bunkers, fix ball marks and clean clubs. She will only be able to communicate in very basic English.
May I take more than one caddies?
Yes, some people take two caddies so that one can carry an umbrella and protect them from the sunshine.
How much is an appropriate tip for the caddie?
In Phuket the expected tip for a caddie is around 400-500 Baht.

If you think your caddie did not provide the expected service for you, then you should tip accordingly and let her know why you were disappointed with her service.

Under no circumstances is a caddie or any staff allowed to ask for a tip and if they should, please report it to Master Caddie, Clubhouse Manager or appropriate management at the golf course as soon as possible.
Do I need spikes?
Spikes are not compulsory, but advised, although soft spikes are preferred in Phuket.
Does everyone have to have their own golf bag and clubs while playing or can we share?
Every golfer must have their own golf clubs and bag while playing. This is to avoid slow play. This is a rule and regulation of every golf course in Phuket and there cannot be any flexibility with this.
Can I rent clubs?
Yes, every golf course in Phuket will be able to provide you the club set rental. However, some golf courses have very limited club sets in their collection. For serious golfers, we strongly recommend you to bring your own club set.
Which golf courses in Phuket have golf carts?
Golf carts are available at Blue Canyon Country Club (Lakes Course), Loch Palm Golf Club Phuket, Red Mountain Golf Course and Mission Hills Phuket Golf Resort & Spa.
Which golf courses in Phuket that golf cart usage is compulsory?
Currently, there are 3 golf courses that will require you to use golf cart. They are Mission Hills, Red Mountain and Blue Canyon (Lakes Course). Both golf courses will strictly only allowed one golfer per one golf cart. The cart rental is 700 Baht per cart per person.

Note: Our Package rate is not inclusive of golf cart rental. If you choose to play at these courses, please be advised that you will need to pay additional 700 Baht per person for the cart rental.
Can I play as only a twosome or a single?
Preferably golf courses in Phuket like golfers to play in a four ball but only if the course is not too busy they will allow a single or a twosome to start off by themselves. However, you must follow the direction of the starter on the tee or the player assistant on the course as to whether you are required to join up.

A single has no standing on the course and so cannot expect to play through groups and a two ball must appreciate a slower pace if there are several 4 balls ahead of them.

Every golf course strictly reserves the right to pair any single or twosome on the same flight.

Note: In Tourist High Season (November - April) when every golf course is extremely busy, you will most likely be able to play as 4 balls only.
Do you allow a 5 ball to play together?
Most of the golf courses only allow the international standard of a 4 ball to play. However, only Loch Palm Golf Club will organize 5 balls for every group as their perference.

Note: In Tourist High Season (November - April) when every golf course is extremely busy, you will most likely be able to play as 4 balls only.
