Golfing in Guam

Guam, a golfer's paradise, is renowned for its world class golf courses. This tiny Pacific island offers 10 professional courses with a total of 189 holes and another 27 hole course under construction. Two of these courses are military and one a short nine hole par 3 conveniently located beside the Tumon tourist district. The remaining seven are numbered among some of the best courses in the world. All of them are visually spectacular and professionally challenging. Designers of these courses include such golfing greats as Palmer and Nicklaus, Norman and Marsh, Snead and Littler and Japan's Tunehira and Ayako.

Each designer has masterfully combined the beauty of Guam's rugged landscape and coastline with innovative course design to create stunning vistas of immaculately manicured greens and fairways that wind their way through lush tropical jungle and, in the majority, provide sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean and Guam's fringing reefs.

It is hard to say which is Guam's "best" course. They all provide their own unique challenges and no player of whatever level of skill would ever call them easy. A combination of gusting sea breezes, deceptive terrain and well placed hazards would test the skills of any of golf's great champions and regularly does.

No golf course on Guam is more than 20 minutes from any one of Guam's hotels but many courses may be fully booked on any one day so book early to avoid disappointment!
