Anyang Country Club was founded in 1968 and the mission was to create a wonderful new golf course (designed by Japanese architect Chohei Miyazawa) that would be as good as those in Europe, Japan and North America. Consequently Anyang is widely considered to be the Korean Home of Golf.

In 1996 the club changed its name to Anyang Benest Golf Club. The word Benest was derived from the combination of the words best and nest. Why? We’re not entirely sure, but the name Benest clearly did not catch on, so the club changed its name back to Anyang Country Club in 2013.

Robert Trent Jones Jnr was called in to renovate the layout; in 1997 a new, more challenging and strategic Anyang was reborn. Amazingly, the course was sown using its own unique grass, named Anyang Jungji, which grows densely and stands bolt upright so the ball sits invitingly on top.

The Anyang Country Club is run under the stewardship of Lee Byung-Chull, the founder of the Samsung Group, his objective was to create Korea’s best private golf club and a course that would inspire ordinary players rather than one intended for tournament play.

The course is cut through mature trees, which not only prove a challenge for the crooked driver but also brilliance of seasonal colour. This is a very special tract of land and it’s easy to see why locals call Anyang “Home”.
