It is interesting just how many of the great luminaries of the Golfing world (Greg Norman, Nick Faldo, Jack Nicklaus, Colin Montgomery and Gary Player, amongst many others) have designed world class golf courses all over Southeast Asia, making it now one of the world’s top destinations for the game.

Set in some truly amazing locations, with top-notch hotels and facilities, there is no shortage of things to do off the course as well. Perhaps nowhere epitomises this than the stunning course at Tanah Lot in Bali, overlooking the famous ocean temple, or the courses at Siem Reap in Cambodia, where a few rounds can be readily combined with the awesome and evocative grandeur of adjacent Angkor Wat and its vast array of ancient sister temples.

Indeed many of the top courses in Southeast Asia are poised close to some of the best beaches, finest cultural sites and scenic destinations and it’s the perfect way to combine the pleasures of your sport with some great sightseeing.

Another advantage of these superlative courses is that, should one be travelling with family or friends less passionate for the game, there is always plenty to keep them busy with first class sightseeing, whilst you indulge yourself on the fairways.s less passionate for the game, there is always plenty to keep them busy with first class sightseeing, whilst you indulge yourself on the fairways.
