Golf course planned for large South Korean project


A South Korean group has agreed to build what’s been called the “biggest and most expensive tourism project” in the Subic Bay area.

Resom Resort Company plans to build Subic Resom City on 750 acres in the Subic Bay Freeport, the former U.S. naval base that’s been converted to civilian uses. The Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority, which controls development in the area, expects the company to produce a “world-class” destination that will include a casino, overnight accommodations and vacation housing, several hotels, a theme park, a water park, a duty-free shopping area, a wellness center, a spa and a championship-caliber golf course.

Resom is no stranger to the golf business. The company owns a golf course in Shandong Province, China, and one of its three resorts in South Korea – Resom Ocean Castle on Anmyeondo Island – has a golf course.

Subic Resom City is expected to open in 2017 or 2018.
