Commenting on Laguna Golf Phuket winning the IAGTO Sustainability Award for Community Value, GEO Chief Executive Jonathan Smith said: “Laguna Golf Phuket, in Thailand, has been dedicated to community relations and corporate social responsibility since its establishment in 1984 within the grounds of a disused tin mine.

“By turning profits back into key ethically motivated purposes – cultural diversity, social equity, educational empowerment, promotion of health and sports, and environmental preservation – the resort is able to function as a community within a community, safeguarding its ecological and cultural heritage and promoting a shared prosperity. For this reason and the wider value it provides, Laguna Golf Phuket wins the Community Value category.”
