Saris, the Executive Director of Stonehill Estate Co Ltd, said: “My father was given the opportunity to build Stonehill so the challenge was to be more than just a golf course. It has to be fully functional in the golf course facilities and hospitality services.”
“I’ve chosen the best at every stage, from design and construction to the selection of all the people involved in the Stonehill project, to bring our golf course on par with, if not surpassing, the rest of the world,” he said. “This was originally barren land. We have made it carefully step by step. The design combines modernity and traditionalism to create something that is both contemporary and timeless. The materials used in its construction, such as limestone, were imported from Verona, Italy, and were chosen by my father. We chose Thai teak for the woodwork,” added Saris.
“We wanted the trees and vegetation chosen to decorate the project to create an atmosphere that makes you feel like you’re in a foreign country, so you don’t have to travel abroad to play a good round of golf.” play… This will be a destination for everyone, not just golfers.”
Stonehill was created by renowned American architect Timothy Slattery of Hart Howerton and golf course designer Kyle Phillips. The architectural design is inspired by the neoclassical era, integrating old and new influences.
Spread over 950 rai (152 hectares) of land, Stonehill is divided into several zones, each with unique atmospheres and features. There are two restaurants, Ubuntu and Rock Creek, as well as a bar called Firefly. There’s also The Pavilion, a large banquet hall that can host a variety of parties, Saris said.
