Formerly the Banyan Tree Golf Club, Laguna has had a facelift and a name change. All the greens have been rebuilt and reshaped, the once-flat fairways now roll and dip, strategic hazards have been added and more mature trees enhance the woodlands setting.
Rapid improvements have seen the course rated in surveys among the top 10 courses in Thailand. British tournament pro Nick Faldo is said to have been most complimentary about the course, which he played while on vacation on Phuket.

Laguna Phuket Course
With some dramatic changes, water now comes into play on 14 holes. While Laguna has been upgraded, the course is not too daunting for someone who just wants to play resort-style golf. It's relatively easily walking, although the prospect of introducing a fleet of golf carts is being considered. There are about 395 members and 209 caddies. Several new kiosks have been added and a modern electric beverage cart patrols the course dispensing drinks and cold towels.
