Nine Bridges hole 18 approachNine Bridges hole 18 approach


 The Club at Nine Bridges is located on Jeju Island, South Korea.

The golf course was designed by Ronald Fream and David Dale from Golf Plan and opened for play in 2001.

Nine Bridges was founded by the grandson of the originator of Samsung.

The Club at Nine Bridges boasts eight bridges on the course- the ninth is a conceptual link between the club, it's members, and the game of golf.


The course is routed through heavily treed hilly terrain somewhat reminiscent of the Scottish Highlands.

At times a golfer could be forgiven for thinking they were transported to a highly manicured Gleneagles!

But the warm Jeju climate gives the game away..


The two nines- Creek and Higlands are subtly different with the front nine (Creek) set in more undulating and heavily treed territory.

The back nine (Highlands) is more open and incorporates water hazards on a number of holes.


Tournament History


Nine Bridges has hosted a number of major tournaments including:

 The South Korean LPGA 4 times (2002-2005)

The CJ Cup- a PGA tour event 3 times, before moving back to the USA as the CJ Byron Nelson event.

The club also hosts the World Club Championships (WCC) each year

It is now recognised as the premier amateur club tournament in the world and is sanctioned by the R&A and the USGA.



Nine Bridges is a memorable five star golfing experience.

The accommodation and dining experiences match the beautifully presented course.

It is a cart and caddie course, all professionally done.




Notable holes include:


There are two loops of nine holes returning to the clubhouse: the Creek nine and the Highland nine

Creek Nine

- Hole 4, a complicated dogleg par 4 which challenges you on the second shot- lay up or go for broke

- Hole 5, a strong par 4 with the putting surface protected by water left and bunkers right

- Hole 9, ‘the signature hole’ at Nine Bridges- a par 5 with dual fairways and a risk/reward strategy tempting golfers to go for the island green in two

 Nine Bridges is famous for the televised broadcasts of the CJ Cup, the first PGA Tour event held in South Korea.

Being a private member's club Nine Bridges is not generally available to the public.

But the beautifully maintained course is a joy to play and no pushover.

It is the sort of course where you benefit from repeat plays.
