Overview

Immerse yourself in picturesque beauty as you tee off on our award-winning Best Resort Course, recognized as one of the Top Ten Course in Malaysia. This popular 27-hole, Ross C.Watson designed championship golf course accents our lush greens with rocks, landscaping and lakes in the golf resort's Rocky 9, Palm 9 and Crocodile 9 tracts.

Within the “entertainment” resort sits the 27-hole golf complex. The design by Ross Watson is exquisite and none of the holes on the golf course will disappoint you. The entire complex flows beautifully with gentle undulations and mature trees which blend seamlessly with the water hazards and rocky outcrops.

The Palm course would be considered as the most picturesque of the 3 loops with designer Watson creating a visual spectacle with the use of trees flanking the fairways and the strategically placed clustering of pot bunkers that partner the more aesthetic bunkering around the greens, which are often elevated.

To start The Palm course the golfer is faced with probably the toughest challenge of the loop, with the signature hole unusually being the first. A par four of 384 meters from the blue tees the golfer is required to be warmed up before standing on this island green which will require a long carry to reach the fairway. The second shot is no easier with an approach over yet more water to a green that is guarded by several green side bunkers.

The 9th is also a good hole, a 394 metre par four which requires accuracy from the tee to avoid the fairway bunkers and leave the best angle into the green which is flanked by water left and bunkers.

The second course that would generally make up the 18 holes for tournament play is The Rockies. As the name suggests the course is sprinkled with various rocky outcrops which provide a challenge to the golfer as well as a distinctive feature for the course which is otherwise relatively flat.

Of the holes on the Rocky Course the 8th is a good par four, measuring 366 metres from the blue tees the hole requires a drive that finds the undulating fairway to leave an approach to the green which is protected with water.
