The signature par 3 sixteenth hole offers a green encased by a myriad of gaping bunkers,while the short par4 month hole looks deceptively easy,until you realise you are forced to hit into the small island green. The par 5 seventeenth hole,perhaps the most challenging, requires three long yet precise shots into a large green. The fifteenth might make you think that you are playing in the Rockies, as you watch your shot soar to the green,set against the back drop of the magnificent mountains.
Laguna Phuket Golf Club Scorecard
Laguna Phuket Golf Club Course Guide
|Hole 1 Par 4 HCP 18
This short par 4 is an excellent starting point for the golf course. Large trees line the right side of the fairway, and long hitters can gamble by cutting the corner. The hole bends from left to right. The straight hitter will be rewarded with an easy approach onto this flat but small green.
|Hole 2 Par 5 HCP 14
A drive over the lagoon starts this hole as it follows the natural landscape up a small hill. The green is tucked behind a ridge that runs the entire length of its right side. The safe route on the second shot is down the centre of the fairway between the numerous traps that guard the landing area. Long hitters may opt to carry the coconut grove that hides the green.
|Hole 3 Par 3 HCP 16
With the green perched on top of a small ridge, the surrounding mountains provide a dramatic backdrop to this medium length par 3. Many golfers choose to play one club short to avoid the bunkers on the left and back of the green.
|Hole 4 Par 4 HCP 8
With water running along the entire left side of the hole, the tee shot is very demanding. The bunker on the right defines the optimum placement, while the two-tiered green makes for an interesting target.
|Hole 5 Par 5 HCP 2
This long par 5 is the most difficult on the course. With water close to the left side of the landing area, it is better to keep to the right on the tee shot. Having successfully negotiated that, you must then master an uphill shot into a narrow landing area with bunkers on the right and a coconut grove on the left. The short third shot is also uphill towards the large green.
|Hole 6 Par 4 HCP 6
This straightaway par 4 looks easier than it is. A large bunker absorbs the left side of the fairway. Longer hitters can try to play over the bunker; however, a tee shot short of the bunker leaves an open second to this well protected green.
|Hole 7 Par 3 HCP 10
Definitely the longest par 3 on the course. Though it plays slightly down hill, this hole requires a masterful long iron shot to land on the green, as it is well protected by bunkers on the left and water on the right.
|Hole 8 Par 4 HCP 4
Some say this is the hardest hole on the golf course. With water on the left and three gaping bunkers to the right, a straight tee shot is the key to this long dog-leg right par 4. Once safely on the fairway, a delicate approach is needed to play onto the steep, sloping green.
|Hole 9 Par 4 HCP 14
At 373 yards, the ninth hole is a relatively short par 4. A tee shot is needed down the centre of the fairway as any to the right side make for a longer second shot However the approach shot must be accurate as it has to be played to a small island green that slopes off to the water. This hole is recognized as one of the course's signature holes and is featured in many promotional photographs.
|Hole 10 Par 4 HCP 1
The nature of the back 9 holes is dictated by the long 10th hole. With the green set out on a promontory in the surrounding lake, the second shot is the most difficult iron shot on the course. Between the lake and the green lies a sweeping bunker of almost 100 yards that runs into the water. A pin placement in the back right corner of the green makes this a championship calibre hole.
|Hole 11 Par 3 HCP 11
Though this is the shortest hole on the course, it is the most treacherous. Perched above the lake, the 11th green is an intimidating target. Water will catch any shots veering to the right, and large mounding protects the left side. A chip from above the mounding will be difficult to keep on the putting surface.
|Hole 12 Par 4 HCP 7
At 386 yards, this sharp dog-leg right around the environmental reserve area demands accuracy. Bunkers and a small creek define the left side of the driving area, and a drive on the fairway is a must. The long and straight hitters face the challenge of biting off as much of the reserve area as their talents permit. The circular green is in the middle of a large bunker that engulfs the putting area. The short second shot is a tough one.
|Hole 13 Par 3 HCP 13
The adjacent mountains are a perfect backdrop to this attractive hole. Players will want to hit one extra club to avoid the large bunker that sits short and left of the green. This undulating green presents a challenge once you reach the putting surface.
|Hole 14 Par 4 HCP 15
Golfers beware on this short par 4. Though it looks straight forward and simple, don't think it is a push over. Water looms directly behind the green site, so be sure to keep the ball in front of the flag stick. Water also comes into play on the tee shot, and a long iron shot off the tee for optimum placement is not a bad decision.
|Hole 15 Par 4 HCP 5
This hole offers quite a contrast to the relatively flat nature of the course. The green site is tucked into a large mound with the entry to the green carved beautifully out of the natural landforms. Two pot bunkers front the left and right of the green.
|Hole 16 Par 3 HCP 17
A straight and accurate middle iron shot is required to reach the green that is encased by twelve large bunkers. With the dramatic views of the Andaman Sea, this is the Laguna's most scenic hole.
|Hole 17 Par 5 HCP 3
At 612 yards, accuracy and distance are required to navigate this par 5, the longest hole in Phuket. A large water hazard runs along the entire length of the right side, and a small lake comes into play on the tee shot. A precise lay-up is needed on the 2nd shot as the lake protrudes into the fairway just short of the large tree. A long third shot is needed to complete the challenge, but the large green provides a generous target.
|Hole 18 Par 5 HCP 9
As the second of the back-to-back par 5 finishing holes, the long 18th provides the final challenge. The tee shot goes through a complex of mounds into a tight landing zone bringing a large lake into play for most of the distance, including the final two shots into the green. The putting surface is indicative of the much improved quality of the greens on the whole course which have been rebuilt and reshaped resulting in a truer and faster roll.
