The Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea will set the standard of excellence for private golf cubs and lifestyle communities in Asia. In fact, by exclusive arrangement, this will be the only golf club in Korea to ever carry the name of the Golden Bear himself. Hand-selected by Jack Nicklaus himself, only 25 Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses worldwide will carry the prestigious Jack Nicklaus Golf Club name. A select number of Associate Members at each of these clubs will enjoy the ultimate in playing privileges, services and amenities as they retreat to some of the world's most desirable locations to play the Signature Golf Courses that continue to inspire and challenge golfers with their distinctive terrains and beauty.
From the tournament tees, the course will play to more than 7,300 meters, presenting a challenge to the most talented of golfers. However, thanks to multiple tees and strategy options, the course will be playable and enjoyable for golfers of all abilities.
The club will feature casual dining, a bar and lounge, private meeting rooms, complete fitness and swimming facilities, spa amenities and a professionally staffed golf shop. Members can enjoy personalized service. A variety of activities and events will cater to all their sporting, recreational, leisure and culinary needs.
The architecture of the clubhouse and villa designs will set a new benchmark for environmental stewardship. The gold course is a green oasis for the city, enhancing both its natural aesthetic appeal and the overall quality of life in Songdo IBD. The PGA-championship 18-hole golf course will be at the heart of a Western-style fairway community that will include 179 villas. The golf course will attract international golf enthusiasts throughout Asia and the world.
Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea will also be a home for those fortunate enough to secure a residence along the course's emerald fairways. These homes will create an unparalleled standard of life. This exclusive community of residential villas will be built on the grounds of the golf club and will provide unobstructed views of the fairways, greens and tees.
