The Ananti Club Seoul [아난티클럽서울], formerly The Ritz Carlton Country Club [리츠칼튼CC], is a country club with a golf course and clubhouse facilities, located in the township of Seorak [Seorak-myeon/설악면] in the Gapyeong County [가평군] in Gyeonggi Province [경기도]. When changing its name to The Ananti Club Seoul in 2011, it was decided to “completely rebuilding and redeveloping its courses and clubhouse in order to reflect the city’s latest lifestyles,” as David McManus explains, and to leave the behind classical European clubhouse style it went with before. The renovation was done by SKM Architects (SKM 철학). In 2016 the same architect company constructed ‘The Ananti Penthouse Seoul’ that is adjacent the Ananti Club Seoul.
