Scotsman Simon Mees has been appointed as General Manager at Aquella Golf and Country Club, Thailand’s newest golfing establishment.

“Simon boasts more than 25 years of experience in golf course management and will undoubtedly be a huge asset to Aquella as the club becomes operational,” said a spokesperson for Absolute Golf Services (AGS), who manage the complex.

The course is highlighted by Platinum Paspalum grass fairways, greens, and tees surfaces and strategically placed bunkers guarded by vintage railway sleepers.

Guests can also enjoy a smooth and comfortable ride with Aquella’s Club Car Tempo golf carts which are equipped with the latest Visage GPS technology to enhance the golfing experience.
