The Empire Golf & Country Club
The Empire Golf & Country Club ranks among the most splendid golf facilities in Brunei, with breathtaking views of the South China Sea and a magnificent course. The 18-hole championship course was designed by Jack Nicklaus. The courses run directly along the coast. While the first nine holes are situated on hilly terrain, the back nine meander alongside the water. Players should be careful not to tee off too bashfully, as the strategically located bunkers and brisk sea breeze call for both experience and good strategy. The 15th hole of the course is the signature hole; a par 5 measuring 549 yards.
The Empire Golf & Country Club is a marvelous facility that leaves nothing to be desired. The entire site has floodlights, and therefore also offers pleasant golfing in the evening when the temperatures drop a bit. The club hosts large tournaments such as the Brunei Open, additionally offering a large driving range, golf academy, and excellently furnished pro shop. The grounds are perfectly maintained throughout the year.
The country club not only offers its guests golf but also other sport and recreational activities. After playing around, golfers can enjoy a hearty meal in the Bunker Bistro, whilst relishing in the splendid views of the putting green and sea. The Empire Golf & Country Club is a marvelous facility, a true Asian highlight.
