Activities in Korea – Screen Golf

One thing Koreans love to do is play golf, but it’s not the golf you might be thinking of. It’s screen golf.

Screen golf is popular for several reasons. First of all, Korea is a very mountainous country. Screen golf allows everyone to play golf regularly and pretty inexpensively.

Screens can be found all over any city. There are a handful within walking distance of my house and one close by we really like. With so much competition, the costs is relatively low. Nine holes can usually be played for 10-12,000 won. You can play 18 holes for anywhere from 15,000 to 20,000 won.

Don’t have clubs? Don’t worry. Included in the costs are clubs, gloves, and sometimes they will even have shoes to use as well. In addition to the free club rentals, most will provide you with free snacks (candies, crackers, cookies) and sometimes even food like mandu.

The bang for the buck is one of the best in Korea. It’s easy to grab a few co-workers (no experience required) and head on over to the nearest place.

Want to play St. Andrews? You can through Golfzon screen golf. There are countless famous courses from around the world to play that will keep you busy for days. Add all the real courses from Korea that you can play, and you could fill your weekends with  a new course each time.

Here is a short video I made of me and a few friends playing screen golf here in Korea. It’s not a great film, but it will show you what it’s like to play. I hope you enjoy it.

I am new at making videos, so they might not be the best but I am learning. I hope to bring you more videos in the future to show what life is like here in South Korea.
