Developed by the same team that built the World Top 100 rated Nine Bridges course on Jeju Island, Haesley Nine Bridges is another opulent, exclusive offering in hilly ground an hour or so outside of Seoul. Like the sister Jeju Island course, the clubhouse at Haesley is a conceptual masterpiece and accompanied by a David Dale GolfPlan design. Dale had a difficult site in terms of rock and undulation here, but unlike Whistling Rock or other private clubs in central Korea, there was space to create some really attractive and believable golf corridors. A number of holes frustrate for the angle of drives and bunkers, but there are some really attractive areas, and a number of fine individual holes.
Though far from a world-beater, Haesley Nine Bridges is good, sold golf with a nice collection of greens and some super impressive rockwork around the elevated areas. It’s difficult to believe that the rockwork through the back nine is artificial. The bunkering is a little unsightly in places, and could have used some organic styling, but otherwise the course will appeal and is certainly above average for Korea.
