Myanmar

Map of Myanmar

Republic of the Union of Myanmar – better known as Burma – is a country of diversity and many different languages. Myanmar was long considered an outcast nation due to its military coup in 1962 and the sickening human rights record that followed. Nowadays Myanmar is slowly reforming and decades of international isolation drew to a close in 2012, due in no small part to the democracy fighter, Aung San Suu Kyi.

As a former outpost of the British Empire there are plenty of golf courses in Myanmar with most of the better layouts situated close to Yangon, the capital city. The potential for wonderful golfing holidays in Burma is enormous and the country is waiting to be rediscovered.

A new course at Myotha National Golf Club is due to open in 2019. Situated thirty miles south of Mandalay, the 18-hole layout occupies a rolling landscape that features more than 130 feet of elevation change across the property. Architect Brian Curley from Schmidt-Curley Design likens the site to the southern Arizona desert, where the dry conditions will promote a hard and fast game with plenty of ball roll.

We’re striving to understand the full Myanmar golfing picture – some reports suggest that there are as many as 80 golf courses in the country – so if you can help us to further develop the Myanmar rankings we’d love to hear from you. We currently think the premier course in Myanmar was designed by Gary Player. Pun Hlaing Golf Club is located to the northwest of Rangoon and if you've played it, please write a review.

Bagan

3rd Myanmar Ranking

The landscape is rather flat at this golfing oasis, the fairways are lightly bunkered and there are no water hazards to speak of so Bagan Golf Club is more of a resort course than a championship-standard layout.
