Golf is becoming more popular in South Korea. The country is the world's third largest market for golf. Korean golfers spend more on golf equipment than those in any other country. A new phenomenon has emerged in Korea. Golf clubs are opening after dark. This has been called "white night" golf. Korea's golfers have more chances to get their golf clubs out. It can be difficult to play golf in Korea because of a lack of courses in cities. Seoul has just one golf course.
Over 100 golf courses offer night golf. This could mean South Korea's golfers are more successful internationally, especially women. Four of the world's top-ten ranked women golfers are from South Korea. A Korean woman has won at least one of the golf majors every year since 2010. Korea's legendary Pak Se-ri won the 1998 US Open aged 20 in her rookie season. She may have been a white night trailblazer.
