Situated atop mountains 3,100 feet above sea level, the 18-hole Awana Genting Highlands Golf & Country Resort features a unique golfing experience for golfers of all abilities.
Established in 1986, the newly improved Ronald-Fream designed championship golf course presents a refreshing experience for players. New tee boxes situated on Hole 3, 4, 12 and 18, repaired bunkers, and improved fairways, the Awana golf course adds immense value for a comfortable playing experience.
Excitement is key at Awana’s course of 5,860 metres, as the design of the course translates to great challenges for golfers. As a twist, the most challenging hole is Hole 1. The thought of this stirs the imagination of golf enthusiasts as the most difficult hole is situated at the beginning of the round.
Other iconic holes include the scenic Hole 3 where players are able to see Resorts World Genting, the notorious “double dogleg” Hole 12 where the landing area for the first shot is very narrow and Hole 13 where the landscape is uphill all the way from tee to green. Meanwhile, it is described as the most challenging par as golfers have to tee off from an elevated tee overlooking a huge pond at our signature Hole 4 and with three-tiered greens at Hole 18.
The course is an avid golfer’s delight as the spectacular natural surroundings rich in variations of flora and fauna add to the golfing experience. Additionally, Awana’s location boasts crisp mountain weather – a refreshing change from the humidity in the lowlands.
With panoramic views of Genting Highlands and the year-long refreshing cool climate, players can derive pleasure from a unique, comfortable playing experience in Awana’s golf course – a true golfer’s paradise.
