Nirwana Bali Golf Club, Indonesia
This Indonesian golf club has at least three holes located right on cliffs overlooking the Indian Ocean. Then there are the terraced rice paddy hazards, which give games there a little different flavor than the usual sand traps.
Danang Golf Club, Vietnam
The next time you’re on holiday in Cambodia, don’t forget to bring your golf clubs and swing over to Danang, Vietnam, where this golf course (which is designed by Greg “The Shark” Norman) is located. Only an hour from Hanoi!
Elea Golf Club, Cyprus
The Elea Golf Club in Cyprus, Paphos (a World Heritage site, if that sort of thing interests you) shares its space with olive groves along the Mediterranean Sea. And it’s only a par-71, so adjust your expectations accordingly.
Kauri Cliffs Golf Club, New Zealand
It’s tough to beat the coast of New Zealand for remoteness, and that’s exactly where the Kauri Cliffs Golf Course at Matauri Bay can be found. The good news is, as the above video proves, it can be reached by aerial drone.
Falsterbo Golfklubb, Sweden
A golf course with a name like “Falsterbo Golfklubb” could only be in Sweden. This one, just barely, as it’s right on the edge of the country’s Falsterbo peninsula. It’s also reportedly a prime spot for birdwatchers as well as golfers.
Leopard Creek Country Club, South Africa
The Leopard Creek Country Club is right on the southernmost edge of South Africa’s Kruger National Park, so be prepared to do some traveling in order to get to it – or just approach it from the south, I guess.
Panmunjom JSA, Korean DMZ
Nestled within the DMZ between North and South Korea is this one-hole golf course, known as the most dangerous in the world. That’s because if you shank the shot a bit, it could end up in a (literal) minefield.
