Whistling Rock – Chuncheon, Korea

Inspired by the dramatic mountainside terrain overlooking the Chuncheon Lake basin, Whistling Rock Country Club inherits its character from the lakes, streams and dense woodlands of the surrounding landscape, defined by bold rock formations and a wide range of spectacular views.

Sculpted into 27 holes of world-class golf, the routing at Whistling Rock follows strategic elevation changes along the valley floor. Respecting the natural elements of the diverse land forms, the course integrates 13 lakes, all connected by numerous streams and several breathtaking waterfalls that not only enhance shot values on each hole, but define Whistling Rock’s intricate design.

Posing a creative combination of choices and challenges, Whistling Rock is a genuine golf adventure. Throughout each nine, the golf course provides a balance of rewards, for both the more accomplished player and casual player alike. – Photos: Joann Dost

A video of Whistling Rock is available on Youtube and can be accessed here – Whistling Rock Video. Although the narration is in Korean, the presentation is very understandable as the consultants (Ted Robinson Jr., Francine Houben, Ken Alpersten and several others) are all speaking english.  The pictures speak for themselves.

In October , 2012, Golf Magazine, Korea selected Whistling Rock as the “Best New Course in Korea.”  This is a bi-annual award in Korea recognizing the best of fifty projects opened during 2010 and 2011.
