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.
