Where Is It? How Do I Get There?

The 2015 Presidents Cup is being hosted by the Jack Nicklaus Golf Club, Korea.

It is a brand new golf course in Songdo IBD, Incheon City, South Korea.

Jack Nicklaus GC is extremely easy to get to via public transportation. Take Incheon Line 1 to Incheon National University. Walk straight out of exit 2. The course will be on your right after about 800 meters.

For international travelers coming in, the golf course is about 10 minutes away Incheon International Airport. That's pretty much a hole-in-one!
