Although it's known as the Silicon Valley of Malaysia, this high-tech world is scarcely apparent to tourists, who are more likely to notice the 19th century churches, temples, mosques and colonial buildings of the relaxed atmosphere of capital Georgetown (itself a UNESCO World Heritage site), or be taking a 'sampan' (fisherman's boat) to the secluded beaches of Pantai Kerachut or Muka Head.
Most of the main beach resorts are found at Batu Ferringhi, where stiff competition ensures that prices remain reasonable. Whilst the influx of tourists has ensured that the beaches are not quite as pristine as elsewhere, it remains popular thanks to the shopping at the famous night market, the vast variety of street food on offer and the endless opportunities for watersports and jungle trekking.
There is a healthy selection of golf courses to go with all of this, making Penang an increasingly popular choice for a Malaysia golf holiday. Top of the pile is the Clearwater Sanctuary Golf Resort, by general assent one of the top 3 courses in Malaysia. It unforgiving, so those with high handicaps may find it a somewhat dispiriting experience, but there are some wonderfully designed holes and the risk/reward set up gets the pulse racing. The dramatically undulating parkland of Bukit Jambul Country Club, once host of the Malaysian Open, and the two courses at the Penang Golf Resort, whose attached resort makes it a great course for those with a family in tow, are equally must-play courses. Also definitely worth a look are the two immaculately maintained courses at Bukit Jawi Golf Resort, where some blind tee shots and a variety of wildlife on display make for an absorbing day out.
There is plenty on offer for those looking to take advantage of the cheap Malaysia green fees. The scenic Meru Valley Golf & Country Club does a decent job of competing with its more illustrious neighbours, and is not discouragingly difficult apart from the 4th hole's sloping green which is eerily reminiscent of the 12th at Augusta, and despite the absence of 'wow' factor, there's enough undulation to keep things interesting at Kulim Golf & Country Resort.
