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. These new junior rates are valid through this high season until October 31.
