Seogwipo, Jeju-Do, South Korea
Design Style: Parkland Course Type: Resort
Setting: Inland


On the famed honeymoon island of Jeju, Robert Trent Jones II's 36-hole Sky Hill Jeju Country Club occupies one of the most serene and picturesque settings in all of Korea, and one that's perfect for golf.  To the south lie the emerald waters beyond Seguipo Beach, while to the west the peak of Mt. Sambang, with its famous temple caves, often sits shrouded in mist.

The very names of the four nine-hole configurations at Sky Hill Jeju evoke RTJ II's commitment to melding our golf courses with their natural settings: the Sky, Hill, Forest, and Ocean nines blend with the landscape and provide limitless strategic choices. Individual holes feature ancient rock formations and historic stone walls lining dry streambeds. Both eighteen-hole routings stretch to more than 7,200 yards. Describing the project, Robert Trent Jones, Jr. says, "During construction we found granite and living rock that are unique Jeju elements, and we enjoyed using them to create the artistic and functional character of Sky Hill Jeju Country Club."

In 2006, the readers of Asian Golf Monthly voted Robert Trent Jones II the Best Course Architect in Asia. Sky Hill Jeju is one of more than 80 well-crafted and environmentally responsible courses that RTJ II has created in the region.
