Just 30 minutes away from Phuket International Airport, welcome to Thailand’s latest must-play course
For the most overt signal that Phuket is back open for golf business, an Asian Tour double-header in late November-early December in the Thai tourism hotspot was presented as exhibit A. Perhaps you still need fresh incentive to break all those last remaining pandemic shackles and sample golf in the Kingdom? Allow us to introduce Aquella Golf & Country Club.
Designed by Australian company Paciﬁc Golf Coast Design and opened in August, the new 18-hole championship layout is the centrepiece of a 1.8 million sqm master development on the shores of Phang Nga province. A resort hotel, pool villas, marina, beach club and, of course, legendary Thai hospitality come standard. The golf club also incorporates a spa and there’s even a nifty mini-putt for yet more golf and family friendly fun. The 7019-yard, par 72 layout features narrow, gently rolling fairways and strategically placed bunkers framed by vintage railway sleepers. The par-3 11th hole pictured here is Aquella’s signature hole and it’s not hard to see why with those spectacular views out over the Andaman Sea from every vantage point. aquellagolf.com
