Golf




The Banyan tree is a resort style 18-hole golf course located within the Laguna Phuket development.  Carved out of the existing sand hills the front 9 holes (a par 36) meanders through a once flourishing coconut plantation.  The back 9 holes feature water on 8 out of the 9 holes. Golfers playing to a par 35 will enjoy the challenge of the back to back par 5 finishing holes, and the par 3’s.  The 11th hole, although only 138 yards, will leave a lasting impression.

This is a fun strenuous and user friendly 18 hole 72 par course, set in a valley with the course meandering through hills and limestone cliffs, traversing 3 distinct environments. Six holes are in undulating hills, six holes are on the level and six holes through landscaped forest. It is not humiliating or intimidating; wayward shots are not severely penalized. High handicappers have the best round of their lives! Hole 10, 557 yards par 5, is one of the most unusual holes you will find anywhere - a dog-leg right that snakes around an enormous lake which is reachable in one! To achieve it you must aim 90 degrees right to the fairway - and be able to carry your drive 240 yards over the water.

Thai Muang is the only seaside championship golf course along the Andaman Sea.  It is a unique 18 hole course par 72 and 7,028 yards long and complete with dramatic holes.  Thai Muang poses a fascinating test of skills for golfers of every level.  The 17th hole, dubbed the lady, 181 yards, par 3 is certainly the most challenging while the 18th hole is spectacularly running 468 yards along the white sandy beach.  As you make your way from the tee box to the 18th hole you will be struck by the panorama of the Andaman Sea with it’s deep blue hue and rolling white surf to your left and the majestic mountains far away to your right.
