Phuket golf: Laguna Phuket Golf Club
Phuket Activities | Phuket golfing and activities
What makes a golf course so unique? Is it is the course itself, or its surroundings? Many golfers have found that golfing on a course that is surrounded by tranquil landscaping and scenery that is out of the ordinary provides them with not only the opportunity for an amazing golfing experience, but also a chance to truly relax while on your golfing vacation. The Laguna Phuket Golf Club, which is formally known Banyan Tree, provides you with one of the most unique and challenging golf courses, as well as dreamlike surroundings.
This amazing golfing location was designed by Max Wexler in the attempt to create a challenge for not only beginner golfers but also for the most advanced. This unique ability to do so was successfully met with the creation of the Laguna Phuket Golf Club. This golf course is a staggering, yet interesting, 6,850 yards long, and is set against the absolutely stunning surrounding mountains. Perhaps one of the most unique holes in all golfing courses is the 17th hole that comes complete with two different water carries that are connected to a very long par 5. Many golfers loose their balls here, so be careful and pay attention. You may want to rearrange the bet you had with your friends about not loosing balls after seeing this golfing course.
One of the most unique features about this golfing course is its ability to challenge even the most daring of golfers. With water being a main feature on many of the holes, this golfing excursion is not for the meek. However, even if you are not an avid golfer, you will fall in love with the scenery, especially on the 16th hole, where you will get a unique view of the Andaman Sea. Of course, like many golfers already know, when you're close to a sea, than be prepared for some added winds that can make anybody's game more interesting. This is another aspect about this course that makes golfing so interesting, you can play here hundreds of times, but due to the surroundings and the involvement in nature, you will never have a duplicate game. Once you have experience a game on this course, golfing at your local course will never be the same.
