Laguna Phuket Golf Club recently celebrated an extraordinary achievement when its youngest member, six-year-eight-month old Louise Landgraf made history as the youngest golfer ever to achieve a hole-in-one around the newly upgraded golf course.
As Landgraf approached the red tee of the 108-yard 8th hole, she had no idea that she was about to walk into the Club’s history book. Sending her ball flying high towards the green, Landgraf watched on in delight as it disappeared into the hole for an Ace!
Last July, representing Thailand in her first time at a world junior event, Landgraf had participated the IMG Golf Junior World Championships held in San Diego, California and finished overall 4th in the Six and Under Division.
Aside from being a member at Laguna Phuket Golf Club, she also practices daily and is trained by Pro Tien and Pro Punk from the Dragon Kids Golf Academy in Phunaka GC, Phuket.
“Congratulations to Louise! So many golfers play the game for years without achieving an ace. For Louise to do it at only 6 years old is absolutely brilliant”, commented Club Manager Walaiporn Pattamavichitvong. “Having successfully hosted our first Laguna Phuket Junior Golf Tournament last June, it’s fantastic to see so many young golfers continuing to play and practice at our golf course.”
Junior Golfers 16 years and below can now enjoy Laguna Phuket’s upgraded golf course at THB 870 for 9 holes or THB 1,560 for 18 holes. The new junior rates are valid through this high season until 31 October 2016.
