My five favourite golf courses in Asia

Let's go on with my personal selection of the best golf courses in the world. 

Here comes a selection of Asian golf courses:
Mission Hills Phuket (http://www.missionhillsphuket.com/home.htm ): an amazing golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus himself. Exquisite, luxurious and beautiful. Worth seing landscape thanks to the bay of Phuket. Even if the golf course is not very old, it can welcome competitions too.

Blue Canyon (http://www.bluecanyonclub.com/) : one of the most famous golf courses in the world. Heart-breaking wooded landscapes. Quality of greens without equal. Incredibly beautiful lake !

Nichigo Resort & Country Club (http://www.nichigoresortcc.com/) : once again, breathtaking landspaces. This golf course is located in the Northern mountains of Thailand just near the Burman frontier. Moreover, this golf represents a good travel idea for people who want to visit Kanchanaburi and its floating market or for those who head to HuaHin.

- Bali Golf (http://www.baligolfandcountryclub.com/) : one of the finest golf courses in Southern Asia. Impressive location, thanks to the presence of the Indian Ocean and of the Gunung Agung vulcano.

- Spring City Golf & Lake Resort (http://www.springcityresort.com/) : located in Kunming (Yunnan), this golf designed by Jack Nicklaus and Robert Trent Jones Jr. Please Jack, tell us more about this golf course. Proceed : 'We wanted to design a course that complements the area's climate, enabling golfers to enjoy its splendour all year round. Spring City utilises the natural undulations of the terrain, thus maximising the golf strategy with the challenges of side-hill lies and elevated greens and tees. They will also enjoy a course framed by native pines and rock out- croppings highlighted by picturesque views of the mountains and Yang Zong Hai Lake.'

Asia is the perfect continent to play golf, the real place to be, for several reasons. First of all, the climatic conditions are quite good to play comfortably and to take good care of the greens. Unlike the European courses, many Asian golf courses are very close to historical or architectural sites and these geographic situations allow golfers to split their time between practising theire favorite sport and discovering the cultural roots of the country. Moreover, Asian people are fond of golf and many caddies are very wise when it comes to give some advice about the art of golfing.
