The golf course at The Empire Hotel & Country Club, Brunei, is no ordinary golf course. It is one of the very few in Asia that can boast of having seen the likes of former US president Bill Clinton, the world's royalty and heads-of-state teeing off.
The 18-hole floodlit championship course is also special for other reasons. For one, it was designed by one of the world's golfing greats - Jack Nicklaus. For another, it enjoys a breathtaking location, along a picturesque coast bordering the sparkling blue South China Sea.
