Jack Nicklaus is the greatest golfer of all-time. Since putting the clubs away, the Golden Bear has devoted much of his time to golf course design. In fact, Nicklaus Design has close to 380 courses open for play in 36 countries and 39 states. Of those golf courses, Nicklaus has been involved in the design of 290 courses.

One of Jack’s new endeavors is the Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea, which will hold the Presidents Cup this year.

“Our goal is to create an enjoyable golf experience for players of all skill levels. We are confident that we will support and enhance the vision for New Songdo City, the most sophisticated new urban center in Asia and one of the most exciting development projects in the world today,” said Nicklaus.

“This new golf course will be planned and constructed to the highest standards of quality. From the tournament tees, the course will play to more than 7,300 yards, presenting a challenge to even the most talented golfers. We also will ensure that the course is playable and enjoyable for golfers of all ability levels, by providing multiple tees and strategy options.”
