Where2Golf says: 

The Empire Hotel & Country Club: Breathtaking sea views await as you tee it up on this Jack Nicklaus design at the Empire Hotel & Country Club in Brunei. As the centrepiece of this renowned luxury resort, the championship course winds through tree-lined avenues with spectacular South China Sea views along the way.

Developed from an area of natural woodland, the front-nine holes overlook the ocean from higher ground, the back-nine reaches down to the sea. A plethora of strategically placed bunkers will catch wayward drives that might miss the often tightish fairways. The large double-green shared by the par-4 9th and 18th holes is situated close to the seashore, presenting a memorable view of the sea and the hotel's six-storey glass atrium.

MOST MEMORABLE HOLE: The signature 549-yard par-5 15th, runs directly along the beach with sprawling bunkers looming large from the tee and on your approach to the heavily defended green.

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.
