Phuket Venue Recognised as Leader in Golf Tourism Business

POSTED ON November 24, 2019 @ 9:45 am

Laguna Golf Phuket, venue for last week’s PGA of Great Britain and Ireland (GB&I) International Conference, has been named Thailand’s Best Golf Course 2019 at the sixth World Golf Awards.

Paul Wilson (centre) collected the awards on behalf of Laguna Golf Phuket and Banyan Tree Phuket.

Further celebration for Laguna Phuket, part of Banyan Tree Group, came with the announcement that the Group’s flagship Banyan Tree Phuket was awarded Thailand’s Best Golf Hotel 2019 at the Abu Dhabi gathering.

Paul Wilson, Assistant Vice President/Group Director of Laguna Golf, said: “Celebrating Banyan Tree Group’s 25th anniversary this year, we are grateful to be recognised as a leader in the golf tourism business. These two awards exemplify our brands – Laguna Golf and Banyan Tree – and spur us to be a forerunner and continually raise the bar to deliver excellent service and exceptional experiences.”

Located at Bang Tao Bay on the northwest coast of Phuket Island, a 20-minute drive from Phuket International Airport, Laguna Golf Phuket is an 18-hole, par-71 course. With easy access by complimentary shuttle between surrounding hotels in Laguna Phuket, the redesigned golf course has been revitalised to world-class standards.

A Golf Course Facility Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation, Laguna Phuket’s layout is challenging for enthusiasts of all abilities.

The course features scenic lagoons, coconut groves and undulating fairways. After fully reopening in January 2015, the landscape provides golfers with two distinct scenic experiences with lush tropical foliage on the front nine, while the back nine holes feature coconut groves and sand bunkers.

The layout also highlights sustainable environmental conservation, for which Laguna Phuket is renowned. Emphasis on the natural surroundings combines with local wildlife to create a tranquil holiday paradise for golfers.

Three distinctive resorts artfully blend tradition with modern comfort – the flagship Banyan Tree Phuket, Banyan Tree Spa Sanctuary Phuket and DoublePool Villas by Banyan Tree each deliver a unique experience.

Banyan Tree Phuket features luxury all-pool villas nestled around a salt water lagoon and surrounded by lush tropical gardens. It is the perfect destination for travellers who seek a secluded hideaway, and a golf vacation at the doorstep. Banyan Tree Spa Sanctuary Phuket offers an exclusive well-being journey to restore the mind, body and soul, while DoublePool Villas by Banyan Tree Phuket is an intimate haven offering the utmost in comfort and privacy.

Launched in 2014, World Golf Awards recognises excellence in golf tourism, world-class courses and golf destinations. Votes for a range of categories are cast by golf professionals and the public over a nine-month duration.
