A new course with lofty ambition that presents a wide variety of challenges from undulating forests to open links-style holes. Only 9 holes open at the moment but due for completion at the end of 2013. On the oceanfront between Pantai Centang and Kuah Town lies the brand new 99 East Golf Club, the first Malaysian course to be managed by the US-based Troon Golf. Unexpectedly for a club that required the movement of millions of tonnes of earth and the planting of hundreds of new plants and trees, this championship course doesn’t feel contrived and somehow compliments a surrounding natural environment made up of native forests, wetlands and orchard valleys. The opening holes play uphill to the highest point, from where you can enjoy some spectacular views across the entire island. From there, the epic par-5 6th which satisfyingly sweeps down through the forest towards the valleys below. The holes along the ocean have a distinct scottish links feel, with wild native grasses and reeds framing the open holes instead of trees. Less reminiscent of the UK are the rice terraces that skirt the course. It’s a tough course with a variety of challenges, from the undulating forests to the flat, windswept oceanfront holes, and it’s easy to imagine that the course was named after the average score round here. But with its combination of well-designed holes, memorable views, and sea breezes, somehow the score you get at 99 East Golf Club doesn’t seem that important.
