Laguna Phuket under went a massive course redesign around 4 years ago and has something for all abilities. There is plenty of trouble to be found on the front nine if you do not keep your ball straight off the tee. The course opens up somewhat on the back nine but scoring on the last 4 holes is a challenge. the 15th is index 1 and whilst the drive is open, the approach shot is a tricky one to a raised green, with 2 huge bunkers left and right. 16th is an extremely tough par 3 with water to the right and a run off to the left which can leave an awkward shot back onto the putting surface. 17th is in my opinion the hardest hole of the course with a demanding tee shot with water left and bunkers right, followed but a tricky approach to a raised green. 18 is also not straight forward depending on the direction of the wind. Even for the Low handicapper, par is a good score on any of the finishing holes. There are a number of upturned greens around the course so accuracy to the greens is vital, as is a good short game should you miss the putting surface. It’s generally in decent condition with well kept greens and tee boxes. Fairways can sometimes be a bit patchy and also wet(front nine) depending on the season. Good value for members guests or if get a discount from staying at the hotel. Otherwise, it’s not great value at the full rate.
