The PGA has reached an agreement with Laguna Golf Phuket, Thailand, to brand its new state of the art golf academy. The new Laguna Golf Academy, Phuket, will become part of The PGA family of branded facilities joining a group that includes The Belfry in England and Gleneagles in Scotland.
The new PGA academy will be the Association’s first in Thailand and complement the award-winning Laguna Golf Phuket’s 18-hole par 71 golf course, extensive practice and coaching facilities. The purpose-built Laguna Golf Academy Phuket was launched in 2016, one year after the golf course was fully redesigned, firstly winning ‘Best Renovated Golf Course in Asia’ at the Asian Golf Awards 2015.
Laguna Phuket is Thailand’s first fully integrated destination resort that, besides top-class golf facilities, comprises luxurious hotels, villas, spas and restaurants such as Banyan Tree Phuket and Angsana Laguna Phuket. Laguna Golf also boasts six-time major winner Sir Nick Faldo as an official brand ambassador.
Robert Maxfield, the Association’s deputy chief executive, added: “The PGA is delighted to announce the start of a new relationship with Laguna Phuket. “The exceptional golf facilities that now form The PGA academy provide an integral part of a high-class international resort of a quality that is synonymous with The PGA brand and our Members.”
