Golfing in Saipan

Saipan Offers Spectacular Oceanside Golfing

 

Saipan has several world class championship golf courses. Most hotels offers various special golf packages that guests can choose from to enjoy gof while vacationing in Saipan. Below are some of the most popular courses.

Lao Lao Bay Golf Resort

Saipan’s most popular championship course is spread across the Kagman Peninsula at the Greg Norman Design LaoLao Bay Golf Resort. The 6,300 yard West Course is a classically designed golf course; bad shots are penalized, but well-placed shots are rewarded with a low score.

All of the championship courses require that players use carts, but the cost is included in the greens fees. In addition, players should be aware that although the island lifestyle is laid-back, Saipan’s golf resorts require the same punctuality that is expected at golf clubs throughout the world; if a player is late, his/her tee-time will probably be forfeited. Finally, the resorts require proper attire of all players, so tank tops and flip-flops are best left at home.

Kagman East – Holes: 18; Yards: 6,330; Par: 72
