Pyongyang Golf Course

The Pyongyang Golf Course is a 18-hole course that spans 45 hectres (111 acres) and is located on Lake Taesong in Ryonggang County, North Korea. The Pyongyang Golf Course was completed in 1988. Although there is one other golf course in the Kumgang region, this is the only course that is currently operating and open to the public in the country. It’s said that Kim Jong Il shot a 38 under par on this course in his first round of golf. Here are 5 reasons why YOU should play here.
