BLUE CANYON GOLF COURSES
Blue Canyon Country Club’s Canyon Course was the original 18 hole layout and leaped to fame when it was selected as the venue for the 1994 Johnnie Walker Classic. Since then the same tournament has returned 2 times with Tiger Woods winning in 1998. Blue Canyon is recognized as a world championship golf course and constantly ranks as one of Thailand’s best golf courses. The course is set in an abandoned tin mine and may of the old strip mines characteristics are evident throughout the course. Streams filled with rust-colored water, canyons with sheer cliffs exposing red and white tin ore laden rock, and tailings from old mining operations are a few of the many throw backs to days of time gone by.
The Blue Canyon Lakes golf course is the 2nd golf course at Blue Canyon Country Club. The hole routing makes good use of meandering creeks and water-filled canyons created by abandoned open cast tin mining with natural land flow left relatively unchanged from the original jungle contours. The front 9 of the Blue Canyon Lakes Course runs through a landscape of lakes and natural canyons, whilst the back 9 weaves its way around lakes and woodlands of rubber trees. Silver tees between the red and white tees allow this course to cater to a wide range of golfers from professionals to amateurs alike.
