Besides being named the Best Renovated Course of the Year, it was also voted Top 10 for Best Maintained Course in Asia Pacific (ranked 5th) and Top 10 for Best Course in Thailand (ranked 8th).
Billed as offering a New Look, New Experience in accordance to its tagline, Laguna Phuket Golf Club’s redevelopment was completed in-house, by the concreted efforts of its very own maintenance team, under the direction of renowned Golf Course Architect Mr Paul Jansen. The redesign has created intriguing and strategic interest while being environmentally conscious and sustainable.
“The awards go to our entire golf team here at Laguna Phuket Golf Club and are fine testimonies of the dedication and hard work throughout this project. We are delightful to have a team of like-minded associates, who truly share the same passion for golf as our members and guests,” enthused Director of Golf Mr Paul Wilson.
“We are truly honoured to be recognised at the Asian Golf Awards 2015 as a leader of the golf industry in the Asia Pacific. Our renovated golf course aims to align our facilities with top international golf destinations, such as our sister course – Laguna Lang Co Golf Club in Central Vietnam. We look forward to more continued successes as we build upon these fantastic achievements.”
The annual Asian Golf Awards was established by the Asia Pacific Golf Group (APGG), the longest established specialist golf media house in the region.
