There are 136 golf courses in Korea that are open at night, accounting for 33.8% of the 402 total.

According to the Leisure White Paper 2023, recently released by the Korea Leisure Industry Research Institute, 136 golf courses are open at night, accounting for 33.8% of the 402 golf courses with 18 holes or more.

Especially ahead of this summer, which is expected to be a hot one, night golf courses are likely to be in high demand from golf enthusiasts.

In the case of public golf courses, 95, or 38.2% of the total 249, are open at night, while only 41, or 26.8% of the total 153, membership golf courses are open at night.

The Korea Leisure Industry Research Institute analyzed that “membership golf courses tend to avoid opening at night for reasons such as damage to the grass and difficulty in managing personnel.”

By region, there were 49 courses in the Seoul metropolitan area, 24 in Daegu and Gyeongbuk, and 23 in Busan, Ulsan, and Gyeongnam.토토사이트

Bellaston CC in Hwaseong, Gangwon-do, operates a nighttime marshal caddie system (a system that requires less work than regular caddies, such as carrying golf bags on an electric cart, resulting in lower caddie fees) from April to mid-November, attracting more than 20,000 visitors and generating KRW 2.4 billion in sales last year.

The green fee for a Saturday in June is up to 219,000 won during the day, but you can play with a marshal caddie or no-caddie for 129,000 won at night, making it affordable.

“Night golf is welcomed by golf courses and golfers alike as it provides a cooler way to play in the summer and a chance to play at a lower price,” said Seo Cheon-beom, head of the Korea Leisure Industry Research Center.
