Hugging the mountainside between Chaweng and Lamai, this tight and challenging nine-hole course offers breathtaking panoramas of the beaches and surrounding islands. It was founded in 2006 by aficionados of the game to give enthusiasts an affordable and fun experience on the course. Fairly short at par 33, 2,200 yards, tee off, is uphill, from behind a huge boulder to the first green; the second is a steep downhill narrow with a slight dogleg and OB right, but with spectacular views. Each hole will test even the experienced golfer with the severe drops and sudden elevations.

The course is fairly well maintained but the road up to it can be a bit rough especially during the monsoon. There are no pro shop or caddies and a golf cart is a must. A small restaurant serves basic menu and beverages. Golfers don’t come here for the facilities but more for the challenge.

The more serious player should head over to the 18-hole Santiburi Samui Country Club (www.santiburi.com), a beautifully manicured highlands course that incorporates the tropical beauty of Samui. Designed to meet international standards, it is a 6,932-yard par 72 course. It offers all the facilities one might expect at a top-level course, but expect to pay five-star prices.

Both courses are ideal for couples or a group of friends looking to tee off together.
