Golf courses in Myanmar

After years in the shadows, Myanmar has suddenly opened up and has revealed its rich golfing heritage with dozens of public courses and driving ranges.  Nobody is quite sure but it is estimated that there are some 80 golf courses in Myanmar with some of them dating back more than 100 years.

Most of the leading golf courses in Myanmar are found around Yangon city and the other major tourist sites of Bagan, Mandalay, Taunggyi, Kyaingtong and Lashio, and over the coming years Myanmar will become a major golf holiday destination.  

There are some great new courses including the Gary Player designed, Pun Hlaing Golf Club which was built in 2000.  There are also numerous older courses which were left behind by the British and some of these are still in great condition and these include Yangon Golf Club which was built more than 100 years ago. Many of the other older golf courses are being upgraded and offer a unique golfing experience for the more adventurous golfer.

The best time to play golf in Myanmar is between October to May although in the Central areas of Taunggyi (near Inle Lake), Mandalay and Bagan you can play golf all year round.
