World number 45 golfer swings by Laguna Phuket Golf Club

PHUKET: Prominent golfer, current Asian Tour Order-of-Merit leader and world number 45 golf player Anirban Lahiri recently visited Phuket, where he conducted a golf clinic and played nine holes with three young and promising island-based golfers at Laguna Phuket Golf Club.

On the way to the US Open in Seattle, Mr Lahiri stayed at Laguna Phuket’s Banyan Tree Resort and practiced at the Laguna links.

“I played here during the Thailand Open in 2009 and thoroughly enjoyed my time in Laguna Phuket,” said Mr Lahiri.

“After my friend and fellow Tour Pro Shiv Kapur told me about the amazing new facilities, I decided to check it out on my way to the United States. I am impressed by the improvements that have been made.

“The golf course is more interesting and challenging than before, with its intriguing strategic layout. The practice facilities are as good as what we get on tour. Staying in the stunning Banyan Tree pool villa only a few steps away from the course is truly a privilege for any golfer.”
