Myanmar maintains unique golf courses most of them being built
by the British during early 1900s but in excellent playable
condition. As saying goes golfing in Myanmar is truly as oldies
Yangon golf club, Yangon
Established in 1909, simpally one of the best not only because
of it's attractive lay out amidst the trees and rolling hills
but also it's glorious historical background. This challanging
18 hole is a regular host for the Asian PGA tour.
Pun Hlaing golf club, Yangon
Finest golf course in Myanmar designed by Gary Player,
established in 2000. This course operates superbly maintained 18
hole and its greens are the best in Myanmar.
YCDC golf club, Yangon
Fairly new with 36 holes. The Silvery course was established in
1994, wider fairways and fairly large green suitable to players
of all abilities.
Bagan golf club, Bagan
Surely is an oasis in the dry zone as the relaxing garden next
to 11th century ruins and the Ayeyarwaddy river stretching out
beyond. The 18 hole Bagan golf resort wanders in between some of
the ancients pagodas.
Yedagun Taung golf club, Mandalay
Build in the valley of the Northern hills is a challenge of your
talent of sport. It's long and narrow fairway, small but quick
running greens approves you that golf after all is not an easy
Ayetharyar golf resort, Taungyi
Perfect set up amidst the Shan Plateau. Established in 1995.
This course has a challanging per 72 with 7380 yards with
perfect cut of Bhamuda grass with rather large greens.
