“Yasuko’s Let’s Enjoy Thailand – Phuket Special” #05 Laguna Golf Phuket
“Laguna Golf” operates in Phuket Thailand, Lăng Cô Vietnam, and Bintan Island Indonesia, and is the first major comprehensive golf resort brand in Asia.
“Laguna Golf Phuket” was opened in 1992 as “Banyan Tree Golf Club”, and relaunched in 2015 as “Laguna Phuket Golf Club”. It was then changed to “Laguna Golf” for brand consistency.
The resort is an impressive combination of high-end hotels, villas, and golf courses (Banyan Tree, Dusit Thani, Cassia, Laguna Holiday Club, Outrigger), providing beaches, pools, horseback riding, a wedding chapel, and a shopping village. With amenities like this, you wouldn’t get bored no matter how long your stay is.
Being surrounded by coconut trees swaying in the ocean breeze with a backdrop of the mountains just might make you not care about your score. But golf course designer Paul Jansen’s effective use of large foliage, bunkers, and waterfronts makes for a strategic course, shifting the paradigm of what “resort golf” can offer.
This resort was the first in South East Asia to set up a PGA-branded golf academy, providing round lessons and swing analysis using Trackman. Lessons are highly recommended for golfers who don’t get a lot of practice time due to their busy schedules.
