The Birch Hill Golf Club layout at the YongPyong resort comprises two nines, the Birch and the Hill, and this 18-hole set-up is regarded as the premier course at a marvellous 45-hole facility which also features ski slopes and a water park.

Designed by Ron Fream within a winter sports resort in the Taebaek mountain range dominated by Mount Balwangsan, Birch Hill is a luxurious golf experience with rarefied air, fine turf conditions and pretty golfing visuals.

Set in the mountains at around 500 metres above sea level, the downhill par five 10th is a striking hole visually, where a sea of bunkers flow like a cascade and the uphill par five 18th requires a heroic approach shot over bunkers.

Birch Hill is a solid enough course and it undeniably takes a pretty picture, but it’s a course that should have been more impressive. Nevertheless, it’s a well-liked venue on the LPGA of Korea Tour for the annual McCol YongPyong Resort Open and is fun to play.

Ron Fream

Ron Fream's botanical talents were spotted by the Robert Trent Jones design company in 1966 and he was hired, as he says himself, because he “knew how to grow grass”.
