Aquella Golf & Country Club

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 2020

Aquella Golf & Country Club: the layout here at Aquella occupies the northern part of a site that once was home to the Thai Muang golf course. After a period of closure lasting nine years, Thai Muang was reborn as Aquella, and a completely redesigned course opened for play in 2020.

Course architects Paul Reeves and Phil Ryan only used about 30% of the land from the former course. Much of the new course, comprising two nine-hole loops, lies to the north of the former Perry Dye layout. Whereas some holes on the old course were routed parallel to the beach, the new layout touches the beach at one point, and is mostly played just behind the proposed location for the beach resort and villas.

The timber-faced bunkers in the old layout became a signature for the new course, paying homage to a hallmark feature of Dye designs. Water is also much in play on the new course, as it was on the old. Several "klongs" (creeks) wind their way through the site. Aquella's greens are typically large, fast and undulating. They putt true and will reward a good line and pace.

Pick of the holes: at the heavily bunkered signature par-3 11th, which measures 161 yards from the tips, you get alongside the beach of the azure blue Andaman Sea.

Did you know?

Previously this site was home to the Perry Dye-designed Thai Muang Golf Course, which closed for 9 years between 2011 and 2020. In 2021 the new Aquella course opened for play, with most of the new layout located to the north of the old course.

Aquella plays alongside the Andaman Sea. This large body of water is bounded by Myanmar (Burma) and Thailand to the north and east, Malaysia and Sumatra to the south, and the Andaman and Nicobar Islands to the west. Beyond the Andaman and Nicobar Islands lies the Bay of Bengal (Indian Ocean).

The course design of Aquella incorporates specially crafted bamboo tunnels between some holes. As golfers pass through the tunnels they experience a cooling effect due to the shade and wind tunnel combination ... most welcome in the tropical heat of southern Thailand.
