Dagon Golf City
Dagon Golf City & Luxury Golf Estates is a golf course located in Yangon, Myanmar, just 15 minutes from the Yangon International Airport. The course was designed by Phil Ryan of Pacific Coast Design, while the clubhouse and residential properties were designed by Beaumont & Partners of Thailand.
Previously a fish farm, the site features small lakes that frame many of the holes, and the course was created through significant earth moving and lake bed dredging to create mounding along the fairways and define the green complexes. The course features Paspalum grass on the tees, fairways, and greens, which is new to Yangon but should provide good year-round playing conditions in the mostly tropical weather.
Dagon Golf City is known for its challenging layout, with tiny greens requiring pinpoint accuracy on approach shots and large fairway and greenside bunker complexes adding to the difficulty. Many of the holes seem squeezed together, with narrow landing areas and hazards that require long drives or careful use of fairway woods off the tee. The signature hole is the short par-3 12th, which features a giant red monkey in the greenside bunker. The course is also home to the dual par-4 16th and 17th holes, which play in an older section of Dagon bordering the Yangon City Golf Club.
The front nine of the course includes the par-3 second hole, which features intricate rock work and landscaping, and the short dogleg left par-4 seventh hole, which is guarded by mature trees and a small creek in front of the green. The clubhouse facilities are reminiscent of a 5-star hotel, with granite and marble used extensively in the locker and shower areas. The caddies at Dagon Golf City are mostly inexperienced but friendly and eager to assist golfers. Overall, the course is a modern addition to the Yangon golf courses and is already an excellent choice for golfers in the area.
