A Peaceful Sanctuary of 5-Star Luxury
The Empire Hotel and Country Club is synonymous with a luxury golf holiday in Brunei. Only 15 minutes from Brunei International Airport and 20 minutes from Bandar Seri Begawan, a Jack Nicklaus’ designed course forms part of Brunei's luxurious beachfront resort, The Empire Hotel & Country Club. Along with the world-class course, the resort offers further sports and leisure facilities including floodlit tennis, badminton, squash, a fitness center, ten-pin bowling, billiards and snooker, an indoor spa pool, and a multi-purpose court.
The course is comprised of two nines that loop in opposite directions from the magnificent hotel complex. The lush fairways and tropical landscape are fringed by jungle and magnificent ocean views on the holes that trace the shoreline mean that golfers should try to enjoy a round during the day, but if that isn’t possible, the whole course is floodlit for night golf.
Empire is where peace and serenity embrace the challenge of the game. Each hole encourages golfers to decide on finesse or unrestrained power when weighing up the options from the tee. Most of the holes have some stretches of tight fairway, large fairway bunkers, and undulating, well-protected greens.
The par-72 18 hole course with a length of 6,427 meters has hosted the Asian Tour’s Brunei Open, Aberdeen Brunei Senior Masters on the European Senior Tour, and an Asian Development Tour event this year.
