Golf tour operator Golfasian’s Asia Golf Guide offers avid golfers a glimpse into possible future tee-offs in Southeast Asia.
“It could be argued without a hint of hyperbole or exaggeration that Southeast Asia is now firmly established as the world’s best destination for golfers,” the guide states.
This may come as a bit of a shock, with US and Scottish course-lovers likely pursing their lips right about now.
However, after flicking through the first few pages of the guide, it’s clear that the statement might have some footing. Undulating and luscious fairways are seen bathed in golden light, neatly tucked under azure skies. Palm trees dot the rough.
Playing catch up
Golf has long had a foothold in the exotic Far East, the guide goes on to say.
“What was missing in a golfing context were layouts, facilities, and services that could rival the offerings in more established destinations in Europe, Australia, and North America.”
Now, the region has caught up.
“The entire region has caught up with and accelerated past its rivals thanks to a boom in the construction of high-quality clubs, who have incorporated all the up-to-date technology, from the latest on course agronomy to state-of-the-art clubhouse facilities,” Golfasian said.
