Laguna Phuket Golf Club Opens Newly Upgraded Front 9 Holes

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

Starting from Tuesday, 1st July 2014 Laguna Phuket Golf Club re-opened its newly upgraded front 9 holes which began on 1st July last year, giving a boost at significantly improving its golf experience as a world-class five-star golf facility.

The remaining 9 holes are estimated to take another 6 months to complete, with the upgraded 18-hole course scheduled for full operation by 1st January 2015.

“We are excited to showcase our “new look” front 9 holes, state-of-the-art course redesigned by Paul Jansen, lead golf course architect at Faldo Design, and share the experience with our anticipating golfers and members,” said the Club’s Director of Golf, Paul Wilson, who oversees the upgrade.


“This project sees significant investments made to improve tee box areas, bunkers, green complexes, practice facilities, drainage, irrigation and all playing surfaces,” explains Paul.

During the upgrade, members and guests can still access the existing nine holes which can be played twice for a full 18-hole round.

To celebrate the opening of the first nine holes, Laguna Phuket Golf Club is offering Thai and expat golfers discounted promotion green fees of THB 1,800* (half the usual THB 3,600 visitor's rate) for an 18-hole game (two rounds of nine-hole play) and THB 1,500* on Wednesdays only, from July 1 to October 31, 2014.

Laguna Phuket Golf Club, part of the Laguna Phuket resort complex and host of the 2009 Singha Thailand Open and 2010 Mercedes-Benz Masters Thailand, is Phuket’s only integrated resort golf course and is staffed by fully-qualified PGA professionals. The course features a wealth of scenic tropical lagoons and undulating fairways, set against a stunning backdrop of mountains and nearby sea.
