Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea

Jack Nicklaus Golf Club is located in South Korea
Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea (Korean: 잭 니클라우스 골프클럽 코리아, translit. Jaek Nikarauseu Golpeu Keulleop Koria) in Incheon, South Korea, is the focal point of Songdo IBD's environmentally focused green space program. It is an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Nicklaus Design, headed by Jack Nicklaus.

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.
