  • 4. VietnamGOLF 69 With summer in full swing and golfing holidays on the agenda, we look at several highly respected golf facilities around East Asia and the Pacific. Kukui ula Golf, Hawaii A relative newcomer to the international golfing scene, Kukui ula Golf Course is part of the first & only Private Club community on the Hawaiian island of Kaua'i. Located on the island s southern coast, the 1,010-acre Kukui ula golf resort is nestled between the National Tropical Botanical Garden and historic Old Koloa Town. Kukui'ula is a historic Hawaiian name, coming from the kukui/candlenut torches placed on the property and south shore of Kaua'i, to help guide voyagers to Tahiti and back. The private 18-hole Kukui ula Golf Course was designed by British Open winner Tom Weiskopf to appeal to players of all ages and skill levels. As most holes have panoramic ocean views, it's no wonder the Kukui ula golf course was named Best New Private Course by Golf Magazine in January 2012 and Best of the Summer GOLF Banyan Golf, Hua Hin, Thailand
  • 5. Best golf course in the world by Robb Report in June 2012. The property was the McBryde Sugar Plantation from 1899 to 1996 and was one of the most successful and enduring of the sugar plantations of Hawaii. Today Kukui ula comprises a collection of custom ocean view home sites and Hawaiian plantation-style cottages and luxury residences. The private $100 million clubhouse serves as the social and recreational centerpiece of the community and includes the main clubhouse, known as The Plantation House, a spa, the Golf Clubhouse and the stunning 18-hole golf course. http://kukuiula.com/ Alpensia PyeongChang Resort The ambitious $1.8 billion Alpensia Resort project in PyeongChang, Korea was developed to become a popular venue for both winter sports and summer golf. The resort, 187 kilometers east of Seoul, includes two golf courses, the private Golf & Country Club and the semi-private 700 Golf Club. Designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr, the private Alpensia Golf & Country Club is set to become one of the world's top golf courses. With strategic course design fit to host championship-level tournaments, this course is in harmony with the unforgettably beautiful scenery. The 18-hole Alpensia 700 Golf Club features 18 holes inspired by some of the great holes of courses around the world. The experience of this memorable golf course will have golfers feeling as though they have really played some of the challenging holes of these great golf courses. Some of the world's prestigious golf holes reproduced at the 700 Golf Club include: - The 12th hole from the St. Andrews Old Course, known as the Mecca of Golf - The 11th-12th-13th holes from the Amen Cornere of Augusta National - The 17th hole from the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass, the world's first island hole - The 5th hole from Pine Valley, regularly selected as the world's number 1 course - The 11th hole from Pebble Beach Links As a semi-private course available for public play, Alpensia 700 Golf Club is fast becoming the preferred resort for many golfers from Seoul and the PyeongChang region. Situated in the middle of the Winter Sports Park, the iconic Ski Jump Tower and surrounding winter sports venues remind visitors that they are part of a world class facility. wwwwww..aallppeennssiiaarreessoorrtt..ccoo..kkrr 70 VietnamGOLF Banyan Golf, Hua Hin, Thailand Tiantai Golf & Hot Spring Resort, Qingdao, China
  • 6. Tiantai Golf & Hot Spring Resort, Qingdao, China One of Asia's newer golf resorts is the Tiantai Golf Club & Hot Spring Resort, located near the beautiful seaside city of Qingdao. Bordered by the Yellow Sea on two sides and a just a short distance from Korea and Japan, the area has long been a important port for both international trade and summer vacationers. Tiantai Golf Club & Hot Spring Resort has many beautiful holes especially in the summer months when the course is in full bloom. With 27 holes set amongst the Majestic Laoshan Mountain Range, golfers will be enchanted by the course s scenic beauty while also being challenged on several of Tiantai s more difficult holes. Hole 14 is one of Tiantai's signature holes. The par 3 is a demanding hole with a large water hazard to carry and a stunning mountain backdrop. The surrounding landscape changes dramatically with each season. The course boasts a variation of natural hazards such as Mountains, Valleys and Lakes while offering a perfect blend of long and short holes. The 3 nines: Oak Valley, Maple Leaves and Cypress Spring all offer a challenging yet rewarding test of golf.
