Club Nine Bridges on Jeju Island in South Korea will be the host for this event. The course takes its name from the nine stone bridges that span the course over the site’s lakes and creeks. The course is located about 600 yards up Mt. Hall and is surrounded by a National Park. The course features a number of plateau greens, 110 bunkers and also includes a par 5 finishing hole that has an island green. The course has been ranked as the best course in Korea for six straight years. It is ranked as the 79th best golf course in the world by Golf Digest. The Club at Nine Bridges hosted an LPGA event from 2002-2005.
“The climate on Jeju Island, which sits just off the south coast, is temperate and humid, almost subtropical, so it’s pretty darned perfect for golf,” said designer David Dale to the media “and Nine Bridges itself occupies these gorgeous forested highlands that rise up from the beaches—right there in the shadow of Mount Halla, the highest mountain in the country (some 6,000 feet or 1,950 meters). More generally, Korean golf courses just have a meticulously curated aesthetic all their own. There’s nothing quite like relaxing in the back-nine teahouse at Nine Bridges, watching folks play the driveable 14th.”
The CJ Cup will have a field of 78 players with the top 60 available players from last year’s FedExCup standings, winners of the KPGA Championship and Genesis Championship on the Korean Tour, the top available player from the Asian Tour, the top available Korean Player on the Asian Tour, the next three available Korean players from the World Golf Rankings and eight sponsor exemptions.
The tournament should have a strong field because it will offer a prize purse of $9.5 million, the largest purse on the PGA Tour outside of the majors, The Players and the World Golf Championships.
