MahaSamutr Country Club Hua Hin primarily targets families with facilities to satisfy the lifestyle needs of every member of the family in all age groups, from toddlers to the elderly.
Mr. Sorapoj Techakraisri, Chief Executive Officer, PACE Development Corporation Plc, said, “While we are building it to the standards of the world’s best country clubs, we are offering initial memberships at a rate that represents double or triple the value when compared to the same class of exclusive country clubs in Singapore and Hong Kong.” “We are confident that there is a large group of people who are looking for the quality and exclusivity we are offering. We are spending all that it takes to deliver quality which is why the investment is set at Bht 2,300 million. We are aiming for 1,000 members in 2015 and expect 75% of them to be Thai members and 25% expatriate and overseas members,” he said. Mr. James McManaman, Club Manager, said, “We have an experienced group of managers who have worked in the world’s best clubs and hospitality organisations.”
