You shouldn’t judge a book but it’s cover, but you can certainly judge a golf course by its clubhouse. Clubhouses are an essential part of golfing experience. They give you a place to suit up in the morning, kick back after the round with a beverage, and pass the time with friends. While your local muni’s clubhouse may not be built in 1854 and overlook St. Andrews, it doesn’t mean you can’t dream. Here’s a look at 10 of the most beautiful clubhouses in the world.
Jack Nicklaus Golf Club – New Songdo City, South Korea
Jack Nicklaus opened up his first South Korean course in 2010. While the track itself is spectacular, its the clubhouse that really stands out. Designed by an Iranian architect that goes by the name of Mehrdad Yazdani, the exterior is fitted with curved zinc roofs and Merbau wood that minimizes glare and heat gain. Inside features all marble floors, bead-blasted stainless-steel columns, and limestone wall panels. Nicklaus once said the clubhouse is “something very unique and very special.”
