Note from John Nowell @janowell: When I arrived at Yongsan in August 1965, this view would have been the same until 1968 through 1969 when numerous apartment complexes were being built in Dongbu Ichon-dong on the north Han River bank. The Ssangyong Cement Factory was in operation about that time as well in Ichon-dong. Later, that land was used for construction of the Apartment complex that still stands there to this day. In the foreground to the right over the fence was at one time the fairway for the 18th hole. The 8th Army Golf Course was a very tight course with fairways for each hole running sometimes parallel to each other and it was difficult to keep a golf ball in the fairway being played. Occasionally, the golfer had to hit his golf ball from an opposing fairway back into the current fairway being played. Hooking or slicing the golf ball was a problem for the hacker and novice golfers. See two stories about the “Icicle Open” played on the 8th Army Golf Course posted elsewhere on the yongsanlegacy.org website.
