Jack Nicklaus' letter for Pangya Golfers.
Dear Fellow Pangya Golfers,
As a golf course designer, it is a privilege to work on the Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea.
Our goal is to create an enjoyable golf experience for players of all skill levels. We are confident that we will support and enhance the vision for New Songdo City, the most sophisticated new urban center in Asia and one of the most exciting development projects in the world today.
This new golf course will be planned and constructed to the highest standards of quality. From the tournament tees, the course will play to more than 7,300 yards, presenting a challenge to even the most talented golfers. We also will ensure that the course is playable and enjoyable for golfers of all ability levels, by providing multiple tees and strategy options.
In addition to the Signature Golf Course, the Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea will offer fairway living and a true golf community lifestyle. The development team has planned the community so that each of the villas will face the golf course, with unobstructed views of fairways, greens and tees. There also will be a clubhouse and spa.
In every respect, the Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea will be a great place to play golf and a wonderful place to live. I am pleased to have the opportunity to contribute to the success of New Songdo and the future growth and prosperity of the City of Incheon.
