The best time to visit Phuket
The best conditions for golf in Phuket are between the months of November through to February when the temperature on most days is around 24 degrees Celsius. The hottest times are fairly typical of most Asian regions - being between March and April where the mercury can hit 35. This is then followed by the rainy season from May until October. However, you will still have plenty of fine days during these months which provide pleasant temperatures and ideal golfing conditions. The tropical climate lends to lush fairways and receptive greens, the perfect combination for great holiday golfing.
