I recently penned a piece for New Zealand Golf Digest (which is also featured in Australian Golf Digest) on Asia’s most unique golf courses. Asia really does have some fun and unique golf.

I spent a week in Myanmar (formally Burma) in late April / early May this year. During my time in Myanmar I toured over a dozen golf courses including in the major centres of Yangon and Mandalay and lesser known parts like Bagan, Popa, Thayet and Megwey. To date this will go down as one of my greatest experiences and I would urge you to visit this wonderful country which is so rich in history, beauty…..and yes golf.
In a recent article I wrote for the R&A (see: http://golfcoursemanagement.randa.org/en/My-view/2017/11/Paul-Jansen.aspx ) I highlighted how golf in this South East Asian country is both affordable and accessible and how we can all learn from this. I have used numerous examples of golf courses I visited throughout the land to build my case.
To be honest I found this to be one of my my favorite articles I have written to date (and easiest to write because I feel so strongly about a lot of the content).
I recently wrote an article for the British and International Golf Green Keepers Association (BIGGA) pertaining to green keeping in Sri Lanka highlighting that good quality conditions are possible with limited input and equipment that does not break the bank.
