The 27 exciting championship holes here are in excellent condition and are a tough challenge that long hitters will relish. A regular feature in lists of the top ten courses in Malaysia and once voted most scenic course in the country, Tiara Melaka Golf & Country Club features 3 nines (Lake, Meadow and Woodland) of varied challenges just a short drive from Melaka. From the first tee you may worry that the Lakes nine is going to be the golfing equivalent of the film Waterworld, but actually water is only in play on four of the nine holes, and unless you one of those players whose ball seems inexplicably drawn to water you should be okay. Driving straight will definitely help on a course where a slice can be fatal, particularly on the water-heavy closing trio of holes. Your tee shot on the 8th needs to carry around 175 yards to a very narrow landing strip, without going so far as to end up in the trees, and the 9th features a similarly small target from the tee, your shot needing to bisect jungle and water to set up an approach. The start of the Meadow nine seems like sweet relief after the trails of the 8th and 9th – the fairways are wide and tree-lined, and water is rarely a threat. However, like the Lakes nine it throws in a couple of really tough holes just as it looks like you might score well. The 7th fairway is very narrow and the thick woods to the right mean slicing is fatal. On the 8th, a long par-4, you must cross the water that runs from fairway to green to a dog-legging fairway. There are rewards for bravery, as the more of the water you can cut off the closer you are on your second shot. From there, a towering tree guards the centre of the green while on the right is a wooded ravine and the left is jungle. The approach here will separate the men from the boys. The Woodland nine lives up to its name thanks to the jungle that lines the narrow fairways and severely punishes the wayward. Accuracy is definitely the name of the game here, and the tricky greens top off what is probably the most challenging and scenic of the nines at Tiara Melaka. Memorably, the 3rd features a split fairway which offers the option of either a long carry of 230 yards, leaving a short second, or a more conservative mid-iron from the tee which leaves a long iron into the sloping green. The course is kept in excellent condition. Even after torrential rain the fairways were in great shape thanks to a good drainage system, and the greens are lightning quick even when wet. Putting in the dry must be like playing on glass. The rough isn’t too tenacious, thereby allowing the chance to recover if you veer slightly off line, and given the course isn’t too long it isn’t too much of a problem to miss the fairway as long as you don’t end up in water. For this reason, some good scores and some satisfying recoveries from awkward positions should be possible, and we reckon you’ll very much enjoy a round at Tiara Melaka Golf & Country Club, whichever 18 holes you choose.
