Golfers searching for an archetypal resort course in Phuket need look no further than the Jack Nicklaus-designed course at Mission Hills Golf Resort and Spa. Situated next to a mangrove forest on the northeast coast of the island, the course is only a 15-minute drive from the international airport with incredible ocean views from almost every fairway.

Feature holes on the front nine include the par five 2nd and par four 5th, which share the same island green and the 237-yard 7th, the longest par three on the card, where the green sits behind a large lake.

The par four 12th is ranked the most difficult hole on the card. Measuring a mighty 481 yards from the back markers, it bends slightly to the left from the tee with water and a large waste area threatening shots that stray too far to the right of the fairway.

Visitors should note that the use of a cart and caddy is mandatory at Mission Hills.

I have only played a few Nicklaus courses and I am not a fan. It is all rather predictable with lots of bukers up one side or the other of the fairway.

I have played Mission Hills twice once some years ago and the course condition and service were fantastic. Having played it again recently I was really disappointed, the course is not in such good condition and there is clearly a maintenance problem with both the course and the clubhouse.

For the price one expects something better. Nevertheless it still lies on the waters edge and some of the holes are spectacular but many are rather banal. UnlessI hear that there has been a chnage of ownership I will not return.

Really a shame since this could be a great course. The setting is spectacular but it is so poorly maintained (including trash on the side of the fairways) that I would not recommend it.

Mission Hills (Phuket) was a little disapointing despite the fact that I played well here. It is very much an American / Target Golf design including lots of water and large waste type ares. The condition of the course did not meet up with the price tag including some very poorly maintained bunkers. The service around the course was first class though and some of the views were spectacular. If you've played all of the other Phuket courses then give this a go but if not then it is not especially worth the visit. Laguna offers better value and the Blue Canyon set up offers more vareity with the Canyon course only slightly more expensive during my visit (Jan 2008)

No one who plays regularly in Phuket rates Mission Hills - the grass on the fairways is extremely poor and the service is at best average.
