From the back tees, the course exceeds 7,400 yards (6,770 m) and presents a challenge to even the most talented golfers. Within the golf course, there will be a Western-style fairway community, including 179 detached single family villas.
The club hosted the eleventh Presidents Cup in 2015, the first held in Asia. Before it officially opened, it was the site of a Champions Tour tournament in September 2010, the Posco E&C Songdo Championship, a first for that tour in Asia. A second edition was played in 2011, as the Songdo IBD Championship. The International Crown, an eight-nation team event on the LPGA Tour, is scheduled for 2018 and will be the first held outside the United States.
