Golf in Myanmar

Golf is a popular sport in Myanmar

The best time for golf tours are from October to May. Yangon, Taunggyi near Inle Lake and central Myanmar (Mandalay and Bagan) for all year round. Myanmar (Burma) was anglicized since 1824; there is a long history in the game of golf. The first golf course in Myanmar was opened in 1887  which is located in the town of Thayetmyo about 225 mile from North of Yangon. Since in that time,  Thayet Century Golf Club was established by British. The member of Thayet Golf club is affiliated to Royal St. Andrews Golf Club (Scotland) as an honorary guest.

Today there are 127 golf courses all over the country from Myitkyina in far north Myanmar to the southernmost town of Kawthaung (formerly Victoria Point). Among the golf courses.

As most of the best golf courses in Myanmar are located around Yangon city and some major tourist sites of Bagan as Bagan Golf Resort, Mandalay, Taunggyi, Kyaingtong and Lashio, there are enormous potentials for Golf holidays. Moreover, the rates such as green fees, caddie fees, buggy rental and other service charges are relatively cheaper compared with the neighboring countries.

It is golden opportunity for those who wish to play golf in exotic courses, besides an experience of un-spoilt natural beauty and to enjoy a simple hospitality of Myanmar people.
