With an environmentally-friendly golf course as its foundation, Pine Ridge Resort’s style differs from a typical Korean resort. Each of the 168 rooms is housed on the green in a European-style villa, giving the whole resort the atmosphere of a mountain village.
The course itself was built with elvan stone—a type of mineral adamantine renowned in Eastern medicine for its healing powers—and watered with the hot springs of Seorak.
Devoted to the care of people as well as the environment, Pine Ridge also has traditional spa facilities. The Azalea Sauna uses naturally heated hot spring water in its baths, and the Azalea Spa and Oriental Medical Clinic offers many holistic therapy programs geared towards golfers.
