Laguna Phuket Golf Club recently welcomed the current Asian Tour Order of Merit leader and world number 45 golf player, Anirban Lahiri.
Stopping at Laguna Phuket in June on the way to US Open in Seattle, Lahiri stayed at the internationally renowned resort – Banyan Tree Phuket and practiced at the newly renovated Laguna Phuket Golf Club.
“I played here during the Thailand Open in 2009 and thoroughly enjoyed my time in Laguna Phuket,” said Lahiri.
“After my friend and fellow Tour Pro Shiv Kapur told me about the amazing new facilities, I decided to check it out on my way to the United States. I am impressed by the improvements that have been made. The golf course is more interesting and challenging than before with its intriguing strategic layout. The practice facilities are as good as that we get on the tour. Staying in the stunning Banyan Tree pool villa only a few steps away from the golf club, is truly a privilege for any golfer,” he added.
During his two-day stopover, Lahiri practiced on his game ahead of this year’s second major championship – the US Open. He also made time to motivate some local junior golfers. He conducted a golf clinic on the practice range and played nine holes with three young promising Phuket-based golfers.
Following the golf course renovation, Laguna Phuket Golf Club provides the perfect golfing experience for players of all abilities. The thoroughly redesigned course features a wealth of scenic lagoons, coconut groves and undulating fairways. Along with the 18-hole golf course, the new practice facilities are truly world-class.
Director of Golf, Paul Wilson, said “We have fully invested in our practice facilities, creating a top quality grass driving range, providing top quality golf balls and ensuring extensive short game practice greens. Having top international professional players such as Anirban visiting Laguna Phuket Golf Club is fantastic and it has been our great pleasure hosting him.”
