Aquella Golf & Country Club

Aquella Golf & Country Club has officially opened its doors to the golfing fraternity. Situated beside the stunning Andaman Sea on the Phang Nga coastline, Aquella Golf & Country Club has set a new benchmark for luxury living, sport and recreation, generously complemented by famed Thai hospitality.

  Phang Nga

Step through the locally-styled archway that welcomes visitors and be prepared to have your breath taken away by stunning views and contemporary-styled architecture that pays homage to local Thai culture and influences. Savour an unequalled modern lifestyle hub where luxury service and comfort exude.

Aquella offers an experience that will satisfy golfers of all levels. The stunning course will leave all in awe, with 18 holes combining to measure a little over 7,000 yards. Gently undulating terrain sculpted to take in panoramic views of the Andaman Sea and nearby mountains will provide many memorable moments. Award-winning Australian golf course architects – Pacific Golf Coast Design – have transformed the site into a championship standard layout, carpeted using pristine Paspalum Platinum grass. Featuring gently rolling fairways that are intersected by stunning strategically placed bunkers, of which the faces are constructed with vintage style railway sleepers, these features are sure to test strategic minds, along with accuracy from the tee and approaches to the greens.

 

The course presents beauty and challenges through the meandering tidal waterways and lakes, giving golfers a range of visual delights depending on the time of day. The landscape of the golf course has been carefully selected to focus on sustainability and visual impact, using colourful tropical vegetation, several of which are native to the Aquella site. Once on the greens, subtle borrows that offer up some excellent testing pin positions are sure to hold the player’s concentration levels and make for some great competitive games.

The Par-3, 11th hole has been designed as the course’s signature hole. With spectacular views and sounds of the Andaman Sea from every vantage point, it’s a joy to the senses; it serves as the perfect contrast between nature and golf. Golfers will enjoy the soothing sounds of the waves crashing in the background, along with the cooling breezes of the ocean, that may take their mind off the challenges this hole has to offer. Although relatively short, the hole measuring 185 yards from the Black Tee, it requires a solidly struck shot to the green which is guarded by the two large intimidating bunkers front left and right; the green itself has a steep run off both short and long off the putting surface, so accuracy is key!

The experience doesn’t end at golf, members and guests that have worked up an appetite on the course, or for those just looking to escape Phuket life for a day, ‘The Approach’ restaurant provides the ideal destination to relax and satisfy the palate with a vast selection of local and international cuisines created by our talented culinary team and presented in a warm and welcoming atmosphere within the heart of the Clubhouse.
