Resort set to launch golf course


JW Marriott Phuket Resort and Spa is adding a seaside golf pitching and putting green, which is slated for opening on September 1.

The six-hole green was designed by landscape architect Bill Bensley of Bensley Design Studios, who designed the resort’s gardens, in conjunction with Heath Glasby, golf course superintendent at Blue Canyon Country Club, which is just minutes from the resort.
Construction and on-going maintenance of the green will be done under contract by Blue Canyon.  Clubs and equipment will be available for hire at the resort, or guests can bring their own.
