Laguna Phuket Golf Club
Laguna Phuket Golf Club has been quietly moving forward in recent years, now positioning itself as one of the best golf courses in Thailand. The dramatic and steady changes that have been occurring over the past several years have started to produce positive results for the Club with the winning of multiple categories within the prestigious Asian Golf Monthly annual awards. The Club has won the Top Ten Best Golf Course in Thailand award, the Top Ten Best Resort Course in Asia award and the Top Ten Best Club House in Asia award - an impressive feat considering the superb quality of golf courses in Thailand and surrounding countries.
Formerly known as Banyan Tree Golf Club, Laguna Phuket Golf Club has been conssiently and systematically improving itself. Previously considered by many as a relatively flat course with poor greens, the cours has transformed itself with renovation, redesign and reconstruction.
Perhaps the single greates improvement has been in the greens which have all been rebuilt and reshaped resulting in a truer and faster roll. New green surrounds have also made the short game play more imaginative and interesting. Fairway mounding has made shot making more creative and the maturing trees have now closed in many of the holes, givbing a woodland shape and adding to the shot value of many of the holes, More water has also been brought into play forcing accurate tee shots upon golfers of all levels. bunkers have been strategically added and reshaped forcing all golfers to examine their sand play ability.
Winning the "Top Ten Best Clubhouse in Asia" award was well deserved as the already attractive and conveniently locatyed Clubhouse has refurbished and renovated many of its areas. Four attractive, pillar-like bulletin boards displaying information from activities to memberships have been added to the lobby area. The locker rooms have been refurbished with a full range of amenities. The pro shop has reopened after a compleate modern renovation making it one of the most impressive and well stocked pro shops in the Kingdom. The Cafe at the Club is run and operated by the Banyan Tree Phuket offering outstanding cuisine consistent with the Banyan Tree 5 Star reputation.
