Enjoy the Ultimate Golf Experience with The World

The unique opportunity to play golf almost everywhere on the planet is characterized by the impressive number of world-renowned courses that are visited by The World on its one-of-a-kind global journey. It’s a golf lover’s dream and the ultimate golf experience. The World Golf Club functions as a unique golf program offering instruction and coaching from PGA professionals and arranging golf experiences at world class venues.

On Board Golf Action

While sailing The World, the largest privately owned residential yacht on earth, Residents can improve their game at sea with onboard putting greens, chipping areas and a state-of-the-art golf simulator that offers 52 worldwide golf courses from which to play. Residents can bring their own golf clubs (which can be stored on board when they aren’t sailing) or clubs can be provided at no charge.

A PGA golf professional is on-hand to provide advice and private lessons on board and on shore. Fun and informative golf clinics are held at chosen golf venues across the world.

Tee-Off in Ports-of-Call

The World’s golf professionals begin researching possible courses well in advance of the Ship’s arrival into a particular port. They examine course rankings, industry reviews, the location relative to the port, course designers, and if the course has hosted any major tour events. As a result of the golf pros’ efforts, Residents are often granted access to members-only courses, a unique benefit of sailing on such an exclusive vessel. In addition to Signature courses, The World’s pros draw on their own contacts to seek out courses that aren’t as well-known to provide golfers with an unexpected and spectacular experience.

Golfing with The World has afforded Residents the opportunity to play with PGA professionals at the most southerly and northerly courses around the globe – a rare occasion for most individuals. With these opportunities come unique experiences. When Residents played in Nuuk, Greenland, the most northerly course, they were asked to wear hiking boots as opposed to standard golf shoes and were supplied special clubs to play shots from the rocks.

Golf Venues

During The World’s 2018 journey, the PGA pro will escort Residents & Guests to more than 70 golf courses across the globe throughout the Americas, the Caribbean, Europe, South Africa, and Africa. In addition to many well-known golf clubs, The World’s golfers will enjoy playing courses in remote destinations like Ascension Island, an isolated volcanic island in the South Atlantic Ocean, the Canary Islands off the coast of Morocco, and Cape Verde, a nation on a volcanic archipelago off the northwestern coast of Africa. Those passionate about golf will find an endless offering of unique golf experiences, all arranged by an experienced PGA pro and leaving little for Residents to do but tee up and enjoy.

A Decade of Global Golfing

Since the Ship’s launch in 2002, Residents have played in more than 600 countries and on 975-plus courses – many considered the finest and most challenging in the world such as Kingsbarns (Scotland), Royal Westmoreland (Barbados), K Club (Ireland), Harbour Town Golf Links (Hilton Head), Sandy Lane (Barbados), Loch Lomond (Scotland), Bayonne Golf Club (New Jersey), TPC Sawgrass (Florida), Doral Golf Resort & Spa (Miami), The Hills Resort (New Zealand), Cape Kidnappers (New Zealand), Nirwawa Bali Golf Club (Indonesia), Borneo Highlands Resort (Malaysia), Dalian Jin Shi (China) and Nagoya Country Club (Japan) to name a few.
