Situated in the northwest of Yangon city, only 8 miles away from the city centre, the Pun Hlaing Golf club features a 18-hole, 7,012 yards golf course superbly designed by the legendary Gary Player.
With its magnificent views of the Hlaing and Pun Hlaing rivers, and the spectacular backdrop of Shwedagon Pagoda from several holes. Pun Hlaing Golf Club has enjoyed the title of "The Pride of Myanmar" since its inception in 2000. It was selected as the country's host venue for the ASEAN Foreign Ministers' Retreat in 2001, Putra Cub 2005, Myanmar Masters Tour 2008 and 2009. Pun Hlaing's Club members were privileged to have the opportunity to play with the visiting golf professionals in a Pro-Am tournament held at Pun Hlaing Golf course before the two-day 2009 Masters Tournament was held.
House owners, Residents, and the Club's Term Members and guests may also enjoy the Golf Club's facilities such as the Horizon's Restaurant, with its famous week-end buffets, or have a drink on the outside verandah overlooking the putting green and the 18th hole. Adjacent to the 10th tee, members may also use Yangon's only full-size turf Driving Range, with its own shower and locker-room facilities, and practice on the Club's newly completed pitch-and-put green. Additionally, the Club hosts and caters for private tournaments, both for home owners, and for outside business groups, diplomatic missions and other associations.
After a visit to Pun Hlaing Golf Club in November 2002, its designer and legend Gary Player commented on his website that "Of the many golf courses I have seen in the world, Pun Hlaing Golf Club has to be in the top five. It reminds me of Augusta, Georgia".
