Situated forty kilometres southeast of Seoul, the South, East and West nines at East Valley Country Club are a trio of early new millennium mountain layouts designed by Gary Roger Baird, former lead architect with Robert Trent Jones Sr.

“With just 375 members, East Valley Country Club is one of the most exclusive golf clubs in the country and the price of its memberships reflects the scarcity value and proximity to Seoul,” commented James Spence in The Finest Golf Courses of Asia and Australasia. “Its three nines run through a complex of wooded valleys below an elegant clubhouse with a strong Spanish flavour. Although we are only 360 metres above sea level, the atmosphere is of a high mountainous area…

They have done a good job with the routing of the course and have moved enough earth to render the holes eminently playable without requiring the agility of a Nepali sherpa…

While East Valley would not hold itself out as an extremely tough test of golf, no doubt it is the aggregate experience that counts.”
