“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.

Hole 1 – Par 4, 347 Yards. A Beautiful Starting Hole

“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.

It was named “Best Golf Course in Asia” in Golf Digest’s Editors’ Choice Awards 2017.

Hole 5 – Par 4, 336 Yards. Hotels and villas surround the course.

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.

A pro-shop with impressive displays. Makes you want to spend.

Free shuttles wander the premises, allowing for stress-free transportation, even with a golf bag.

A beautiful view of the Bang Tao Beach can be enjoyed from the poolside at “Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket”, a facility within the resort.

Hole 18 – Par 4, 373 Yards. A clubhouse incorporating traditional Thai architecture sits along the green at 18.

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.

All greens are set to USGA standards and maintained at the best conditions, making the course enjoyable for anyone from beginners to seasoned players.

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.

A PGA pro instructor AND a trackman; the best of both worlds.

Ms. Pond; her smile says everything about her hospitality.
