Golf Mongolia is meant to be both educational and entertaining. The expedition will showcase the beautiful geography and wonderful people of Mongolia but it is also a test of survival and endurance. On the central Mongolian steppe, food and water are scarce and enormous distances make up the space between towns. I'll be faced with the usual golfer's frustrations: lost balls in the rough, hitting into hazards, etc. But, these challenges must be overcome in the harsh climate and vast geography of Mongolia. Marmots (small rodents) are ubiquitous across the Mongolian countryside and are carriers of the Bubonic Plague. The four species of poisonous snakes in Mongolia must also be avoided while searching for golf balls in the rough.
Golfers begin their journey with a round at the Ulaan Baatar Golf Club, Mongolia's only golf course. Then the adventure kicks in. Traveling in four-wheel-drive vehicles, participants will visit the isolated wilderness of Dundgov Province and begin play with a par-30 hole covering 5,000 yards. Eight more holes of golf, each 3 to 4 miles long, are played over the course of five days in remote locations selected for their beauty, cultural landmarks, and ideal golfing conditions. The course winds through the mountains and grasslands of three provinces, culminating in Karakorum, the imperial ancient capital of legendary warrior, Genghis Khan.
In addition to golf, participants will visit active monasteries, ancient ruins, and camp each night in the remote solitude of Mongolia's steppe, while riding camels and horses with Mongolia's nomadic herders. While an active sense of adventure is needed, the tours provide elements of comfort with stays in four-star hotels in Ulaan Baatar and a mobile clubhouse with home-cooked Mongolian meals and an open bar each night in the wilderness.
The local hospitality and friendliness prevailing on the streets manifests in the courses. For more details information about Mongolia Golf Tour please Contact Us
