Not exactly common – but more and more in demand
Golf & Culture must not necessarily be opposites. Golf&Culture – we are bringing it together. Myanmar has good opportunities for both: Culture – represented by one thousand years of Buddhism. Golf – a British past-time, the Colonials built the golf courses near temples and pagodas and used them intensely during their years in the country. The British left, the golf courses remained because meanwhile the Burmese had acquired a taste for the sport. Pan Hlaing Golf Course in Yangon is one of the best in the Southeast-Asia and Bagan Golf Course is one of the most beautiful. Round one!
