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 bespoke golf concierge program offering instruction and coaching and arranging golf experiences ashore, which allow Residents to advance their game under the guidance of experienced pros, while playing the world’s premier golf 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. The latter offers a driving range and choice of playing 52 courses from around the world set to a variety of weather conditions, hard or soft greens, and other related circumstances. 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 golf professional is on-hand to teach the ins and outs of this game of concentration, precision and skill. Private lessons are also available.

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, photography (to gauge maintenance and preservation) 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 (defined by their reputation, history and designer), 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.

The pros typically accompany Residents to shore-side golf excursions to ensure that expectations are not only met but exceeded.

Golfing with The World has afforded Residents the opportunity to play 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.

2016 Golf Venues

During its 2016 Journey, The World’s PGA pro will escort Residents & Guests to more than 70 golf courses across the globe throughout South America, the Caribbean, Europe, Russia, Middle East, India, Asia and Australia.

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 (Wales), Harbour Town Golf Links (Hilton Head), Sandy Lane (Barbados), Loch Lomond (Scotland), Bayonne Golf Club (New Jersey), 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.
