Laguna Golf Phuket welcomed ninetime major winner and golf legend Gary Player, as he took time during a personal trip to experience the worldclass facilities at Laguna Phuket – Asia’s first integrated destination resort. During his visit, Player enjoyed lunch at Banyan Café overlooking the tranquil 18th green and played 9 holes around the awardwinning Laguna Golf Phuket.
