  • The Legends' Golf & Country Club

It’s a shame that only 27 of 54 planned holes were ever finished, because the one that are open to the public are stunning. The Nicklaus course has a claim to being one of the best, and most challenging, in Asia. Although its ambition plan to create three championship standard golf courses designed by some of the greats of the game, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Gary Player was abandoned halfway through, The Legends’ Golf Resort nonetheless does more than enough to justify its name thanks to the 18 championship holes designed by Mr. Nicklaus and a further 9 from the late, great Arnold Palmer. The Nicklaus course is the real draw here – it was ranked as the best course in Johor three times in its first four years of operation, as well as earning a place inside Asian Golf Monthly’s top three courses in Asia. The course wears these accolades well. Set adjacent to a palm oil plantation and sprawling across open terrain packed full of elevation changes and dotted with some frankly monumental bunkering, this is a course with bags of character.You’ll enjoy drives from massively elevated tees towards fairways that wrap seductively around lakes or drop away sharply and unexpectedly. There are risk / reward opportunities for the long hitters and the ambitious, for example on the par-5 signature 6th, where it’s hard to resist attempting to traverse the lake in front of the green in search of an eagle putt. The back nine is tougher, if anything, mainly on account of water being in play from the tee of every hole from the 11th to the 17th (it’s generally on the left too, so those of you with a predilection for hooking could be in for a long day). Some of the carries are pretty daunting from the black tees (the course plays a monumental 7338 yards from the back), but the challenge is an undeniable beautiful one, the small lakes, tropical trees and flowering shrubs providing a stunning environment in which to show off to (or embarrass yourself in front of) the resident monkeys. The fairways are undeniable amongst the best in the land, and despite some occasional bald areas and patches of blue grass disease the greens are in good shape, with predictable roll. The nine holes of the Arnold Palmer course are built to the same rigorous international standards as the Nicklaus course, and are equally enjoyable and challenging. Scenically it’s pretty similar, leaning on undulating terrain and lush tropical scenery to draw you in to a challenge that is a little softer than the Nicklaus course. The only problem here is the regret you will feel at the fact that the back nine was never completed. Like the sound of this course? Secure a tee time and take advantage of the discounted green fees on offer by adding The Legends Golf & Country Club to your Johore golf holiday. If you are travelling to other parts of Malaysia ask us to help you to organise a Malaysia Golf Package which features tee times at The Legends Golf & Country Club.
