Ladies GOLF - - News -

Phuket, Thai­land: Many golfers spend a life­time vainly try­ing to achieve a hole‐in‐one. Not so for Louise Land­graf. At the ripe old age of six years and eight months, she has be­come the youngest golfer to score an ‘ace’ at La­guna Phuket Golf Club. Louise achieved her re­mark­able feat from the red tee at the 108‐yard, par‐three eighth hole at the newly up­graded course, a Golf Fa­cil­ity Mem­ber of the Asian Golf In­dus­try Fed­er­a­tion.

Such is her tal­ent that Louise has al­ready made her mark on the game, rep­re­sent­ing Thai­land at the IMG Golf Ju­nior World Cham­pi­onships in San Diego last July where she fin­ished fourth over­all in the six‐and‐un­der di­vi­sion. A mem­ber at La­guna Phuket Golf Club, Louise prac­tices daily and is trained by ‘Pro Tien’ and ‘Pro Punk’ from the Dragon Kids Golf Academy at Phuket’s Phu­naka Golf Club. Walaiporn Pat­ta­mavi­chitvong, Club Man­ager at La­guna Phuket Golf Club, said: “Con­grat­u­la­tions to Louise! So many golfers play the game for years with­out achiev­ing an ace. For Louise to do it at only six years of age is won­der­ful. Hav­ing suc­cess­fully hosted our first La­guna Phuket Ju­nior Golf Tour­na­ment last June, it’s fan­tas­tic to see so many young golfers con­tin­u­ing to play and prac­tice at our golf course.” Ju­nior golfers aged 16 years and be­low can en­joy the La­guna Phuket course at a spe­cial rate of 870 baht for nine holes or 1,560 baht for 18 holes.
