Strengths:This course has an abundance of cactuses, which may be surprising for a newbie of Jeju Island. They flourish in certain parts of this course. A national monument was created to showcase and preserve their existence. Also, the beauty of Geumneung and Hyeopjae beaches is intense from the right perspective. Shimmer is a good word to describe the stretches of sand and its constant seaside views of Biyangdo.
Weaknesses:Similar to other northwest courses along Jeju’s coast, this Olle course suffers from the in between time being tasteless. The beginnings of industrial walking along the dry, concreted river bed help achieve this feel. Plus, the sea waste is very apparent after the cactus national monument, when the course hugs the shore.

Quotable:“Off the shining blue waters of Jeju’s west coast lies a grassy green knoll of scenic beauty known as Biyangdo. Not only a striking visage from the shores of Hyeopjae Beach on Jeju Island, Biyangdo also offers a small world of wonder just a short boat ride away. … Biyangdo, which translates to “Flying Island,” is home to some 100 residents who are very well acquainted with the island’s fishing spots of Jeju fame.” -- Alex James, Jeju Weekly
