The Mines Resort & Golf Club
You really get what you pay for at this prestigious and immaculately presented championship course
Built on the site of what was once the largest open cast tin mine on earth (hence the name) and acting as a centrepiece to a resort complex that spans some 1,000 aces, the golf course at Mines Resort & Golf Club is a quality affair. It's the recipient of numerous prestigious awards, including being voted in the top ten courses in Asia, and has played host to a number of professional events including the Kuala Lumpur Open and the 1999 World Cup of Golf that was won by Tiger Woods.
The front nine cuts through thick jungle, with the natural elevation changes complementing the man made sand traps to produce a stern test. From the stunning par-3 2nd, where your tee shot must traverse a deep jungle-filled ravine, to the enjoyable tee shot from the massively elevated 9th tee, there are challenges aplenty. On the 7th, the green is ensconced in a small u-shaped dell and surrounded by bushes. Get your approach wrong and you are in a whole heap of trouble.
The back nine is played on more open terrain next to a large lake which adds to the aesthetics of an already beautiful course. It's a lot flatter than the front nine but the lake is used to good effect in keeping you on your toes. The par-5 17th is a monster hole, and you'll do very well to make par; however, this achievement is set in context somewhat by the green-side plaque marking Tiger Woods' eagle 3 here in 1999.
The Bermuda fairways are in immaculate condition, with a pleasant carpet-like feel not lessened by rain thanks to a good drainage system, and the greens, likewise, are pretty much perfect. Despite being relatively flat, there are plenty of subtle breaks to keep you guessing and the speed is lightning quick.
The service is excellent - everything you'd expect from a course of this calibre. The superb reading skills of the experienced caddies saved us many many shots over the round. Likewise, the facilities are first class, with the sumptuous locker rooms really making an impression. Really, overall it's a top notch golf course that more than justifies the high green fees. If you get the chance, don't miss the opportunity to play a round at the Mines Resort & Golf.

Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club - West Course
Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club's (KLGCC) West Course is the longer and more challenging of two private golf courses at the club located near the heart of Kuala Lumpur's sprawling city center. Designed by architect Robin Nelson and playing to nearly 7,000 yards from the tournament tees, the golf course is set among the Bukit Kiara hillsides.
Kelab Golf Perkhidmatan Awam
Even if it may not deserve the accolade of being Malaysia's toughest course, this is still a hugely challenging course in excellent condition; a third, shorter nine, is perfect for seniors.
Recently voted the most difficult course in Malaysia and yet somehow still accessible to less accomplished goflers, the Kelab Golf Perkhidmatan Awam boasts 27 championship holes just outside of Kuala Lumpur. The Lakes and Lakes nines make up the standard, 18 hole championship course, and most golfers will elect for this combination rather than include the much shorter Forest nine. From the elevated first tee you get a great view of the whole course stretching before you beyond the wide inviting first fairway which dives down and then climbs up to a small green. This undulation is typical of the course, and with fairways in excellent shape due to an ongoing maintenance programme, you can find your drives rolling quite a long way if you can catch the slopes. Suddenly, the green of the par-4 3rd becomes drivable, and the downhill 10th can help you add an extra 50 yards to your drive. The greens are also in superb condition, offering consistent roll. This is perhaps the only consistent thing about the greens, which are a mixture of large and small, flat and contoured. Many are surrounded by an extensive bunker complex, but the sand traps are in such wonderful condition that you won't mind ending up in one too much. There are no drainage issues and the sand is so soft that your view after a shot will be an explosion of fluffy white particles. It's probably the rough that does the most to earn Kelab Golf Perkhidmatan Awam the title of the most difficult course in Malaysia. You'll occasionally find the grass too thick to make much progress, and the jungle that borders the course, particularly on the Hills nine, is far too dense to recover from. The Lakes nine substitutes jungle for water (appropriately enough) with errant shots running the risk of a water grave on several holes, but overall it is easier than the Hills nine, and long-hitters should be able to play to their handicap. Beginners will struggle however, especially given the length of the course, although everyone should have a go at the par-3s on the Lakes nine, which involve tee shots over water and a deep gorge respectively. Length is not really an issue on the Forest nine, which was designed for walkers and senior golfers and measures only 2666 yards. Nonetheless, what it lacks in length it makes up for with some devilishly difficult holes and plenty of trees that seem all too willing to send your ball off in random directions. While it doesn't quite live up to the delights of the main course, it's a useful addition to Kelab Golf Perkhidmatan Awam, where an enjoyable day's golfing awaits. Like the sound of this course?

Tropicana Golf & Country Club
A premium course with the best fairways in the country; avoid the 3rd nine in favour of 18 memorable championship holes.
Built on the site of a former rubber plantation back in 1993, the 27 holes of Tropicana Golf & Country Club wasted no time in establishing themselves amongst the best Malaysia has to offer. This is more true of the 18 hole West Course than the slightly disappointing East Course, which does not quite live up to the delights of its sister course and should therefore be avoided.
The West course is in immaculate condition. If you're looking for an example of how fairways should be, look no further. The perfect carpet of Bermuda grass is without equal in the country and is surely a match for the best courses in the world. Furthermore, the excellent macro- and micro-drainage systems ensure that the course remains playable in the face of heavy rain, and sophisticated irrigation systems ensure that the playing surface remains in tip top condition during the dry season. The rough isn't too thick, allowing plenty of scope for recovery after a poor drive, and the bunkers are perfection, with soft white sand that isn't packed down too hard. The greens are in excellent condition too, albeit slightly too inconsistent to be rated as immaculate - some played a little slower, some a little faster, which can lead to a frustrating day with the putter.
There are a number of memorable holes. The 1st requires you carry a lake to the left to a smallish green, and the 11th which plays from an elevated tee with the rest of the course itself providing a stunning backdrop. As your drive soars into the sky, time seems to stand still as it takes an age to fall back to earth. There are plenty of bunkers to keep you on your toes, and enough elevation changes to keep things interesting. The fairways are fairly narrow, the trees that line them can cause all sorts of problems, but the rewards for finding the short stuff are great, as your ball will sit up invitingly.
Overall, this is a must play course. It's in immaculate condition, with probably the best fairways this side of Augusta, and it proves to be an absorbing challenge that will leave you wanting more. Don't let that tempt you in taking on the vastly inferior nine holes of the East course; stick with the West, and a hugely satisfying day of golf is practically guaranteed at Tropicana Golf & Country Resort.

Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club - East Course
Amongst the best courses in the country, this attractive parkland course does well not to be overshadowed by its more illustrious sister course, and is highly recommended.
The championship standard East Course at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club, which lies just outside the city centre, was recently voted the 4th best course in Malaysia and stepping onto the tee and taking in the vibrant, parkland-style environment of natural grasses and wetlands that are home to a variety of wildlife, it's easy to see why.
This is not a course that can be bludgeoned into submission, instead placing a premium on intelligent golf as you negotiate the undulating terrain and numerous bunkers that pepper the perfectly maintained fairways and bordered the immaculate greens. The elevated tee boxes on several holes give you a good idea of the challenges each hole with throw at you, allowing you to plan your route to the green, and despite playing long at 7348 yards there is not always virtue in hitting as far as possible off the tee. With many fairways tightly lined with trees which can severely punish drives that veer off line, accuracy is at more of a premium. This is especially true of the opening holes of the back nine where OB comes into play. It's a good idea to take advantage of the more easy going front nine if you want to score well, as the bunkers and increasing numbers of water hazards that you will encounter as the round progresses can easily mar your scorecard.
While you'll find perfect lies on the immaculately maintained Bermuda fairways, the rough that borders them is particularly thick, clinging onto your ball and very reluctant to let it go. This is equally true around the greens, meaning that chip-and-runs are out and target golf is the name of the game. It hardly needs saying that you'll be in for a long day if you aren't hitting straight - for example, at the tough par-5 16th, your drive from an elevated tee must avoid water on both sides. Both nines end with challenging approaches in front of the clubhouse, requiring an accurate long iron over a pond that menacingly protects each green. Many a scorecard ends on an ugly note.
The recently refurbished clubhouse, which boast the graceful lines of Californian-Spanish architecture, is now outfitted with state of the art facilities and is a great place to enjoy a cool drink as you reflect on your round. For those taking a golf holiday in the area, a round on the East Course at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club should be on your itinerary.

Royal Selangor Golf Club - New Course
A cultural institution as much as its older sister course, the lightning greens and traditional layout mean this is a choice for the traditionalist. Dating back to 1893 and laying claim to be the founding father of golf in Malaysia, the Royal Selangor Golf Club remains today one of the premier golfing destinations in Malaysia. The New Course, which dates back to 1924, is wrapped around the front nine of its more renowned sister course over flat terrain dotted with 100 year old trees and man-made ponds. Added to the variety of wildlife, from chirping birds, friendly monkeys and wandering iguanas, it's hard to believe you are just 5 minutes from downtown Kuala Lumpur. The course is as highly rated as the Old Course, and in many ways is pretty similar, the flat terrain enlivened by strong bunkering, but there are less bail-out areas, with the trees making some of the fairways pretty narrow. The slightly underwhelming fairways are compensated for by the fact that the table-top greens are seriously quick. You'll be begging your (compulsory) caddy for advice before long. It's a shame it's so hard for them to advise you on how hard to hit the ball, as it is all too easy to putt it right off the green here.
Were it not for the Petronas Towers that lurk in the background and give you the line for your drive on the opening hole, it would be easy to imagine that you were playing on a traditional home counties course, thanks to the ancient trees and parallel fairways and air of tradition that hangs over the course. There are no gimmicks here, just straightforward, quality holes like the enjoyable short 14th and the monstrous 18th, which plays at over 500 yards and requires your approach to avoid water on the right and a bunker right in front of the sloping green. It's easy to see imagine the drama that can unfold here in competition. The staff are a great asset here, hundreds of them running around diligently doing their job - turn up really early and you will see them mowing the lawns in the dark with headlights on, ensuring that the course is in its usual immaculate condition.The clubhouse includes an excellent restaurant, plush locker rooms, swimming pool, gym, squash courts and snooker tables, and is a great place to spend some time being waited on hand and foot after a round. It also retains a tradition vibe - you can't use your phone in the main lounge, which somehow adds to the old-school feel of the place. If you get the chance, a round on the New Course at Royal Selangor Golf Club comes as highly recommended as one on the Old Course. Like the sound of this course?

Royal Selangor Golf Club - Old Course
<p>Despite lacking the wow factor, its a privilege to play on such a historic and exclusive course, and the greens are out of this world. Getting a round here isn't easy, but if can it will be a traditional treat.</p><p>Dating back to 1893 and laying claim to be the founding father of golf in Malaysia, the Royal Selangor Golf Club remains today one of the premier golfing destinations in Malaysia. Its historic old course, which hosted the inaugural Malaysian Open and has undergone some impressive and extensive remodeling recently, is almost a cultural institution in itself.<br /><br />This most prestigious of Malaysian courses is a beautifully landscaped parkland affair that benefits hugely from the mature trees that you won't find on the more recent additions to the KL golfing circuit. It's pretty flat, and plays like a traditional course - parallel fairways, bail out areas left and right and an absence of OB stakes that mean there is a certain amount of leeway off the tee. <br /><br />While the Seashore Paspalum fairways are nothing particularly special, suffering from the odd bald patch, they do hold up well in the face of rain thanks to an excellent drainage system. The greens are amongst the best in the land, running very very fast and true. Most are table-top greens, meaning your approaches have got to be spot on if you want to be putting in regulation. The sheer speed of the putting surface can easily unnerve you, and once you've missed a couple of short ones it can be hard to recover your confidence. This is where the advice of the caddies comes into play - they are excellent, and very experienced, some having been at the club for over 40 years. You are well advised to listen to their advice. <br /><br />While its the excellent bunkering that causes most problems, the back nine introduces a series of water hazards over the closing holes to add an extra layer of difficulty, particularly on the signature 17th, a great short hole where you play over water to a raised green characterised by some maddeningly subtle undulations, and on the 18th where you must carry a substantial lake to reach the fairway.<br /><br />Overall, it feels a lot like the kind of traditional course you might find in the home counties in the UK, although the monolithic Petronas towers that look down on the course serve to remind you that you are far from the UK, and when you encounter the dozens of monkeys that call the woods next to the par-4 12th home you are left in no doubt that this is something a bit different. It's best avoiding a slice here, as the local residents may be unwilling to return your shiny Titliest.<br /><br />To be honest, there aren't that many holes that will give you that elusive 'wow' factor, but you genuinely have the feeling of being privileged to play on such a historic and exclusive course, part of a proper golf club with traditional golfing values. The staff are a great asset here, hundreds of them running around diligently doing their job - turn up really early and you will see them mowing the lawns in the dark with headlights on, ensuring that the course is in its usual immaculate condition. <br /><br />The clubhouse includes an excellent restaurant, plush locker rooms, swimming pool, gym, squash courts and snooker tables, and is a great place to spend some time being waited on hand and foot after a round. It also retains a tradition vibe - you can't use your phone in the main lounge, which somehow adds to the old-school feel of the place. If you get the chance, a round on the Old Course at Royal Selangor Golf Club comes highly recommended.<br /><br />Note: this is a walking only course.</p><p>Like the sound of this course?

Bangi Golf Resort
An unpretentious and reasonably priced course that's perfect for beginners; more experienced players will enjoy the plethora of birdie opportunities.
A pleasant and popular parkland course a short drive south of Kuala Lumpur, Bangi Golf Resort features three nines (Kajang, Putrjaya and Bangi) which you can mix and match to make up your round. With a choice of five tee boxes, this is a challenge that you can easily tailor to your ability. This isn't a championship course, but what it is is the perfect place to have a fun round of golf for those who are just learning the game.
Given it plays fairly short at an average of 6782 yards, it's also somewhere more experienced golfers can get a few birdies - the front nine features three par-5s that are all reachable in two on the back of a good drive. Doing so on the first of them involves cutting the corner of a 90 degree dog-leg on your drive. With a massive hit, you can find yourself within 150 yards of the green. This massive reward makes it almost impossible to resist the temptation to have a go, even though only the longest hitters stand a chance of making it.
The par-4 13th offers up an equally enticing challenge. With the green only 280 yards away, the rare (but miniscule) chance of a hole in one on a par four will inevitably lead you to sending a couple of balls into the drink in a somewhat vain stab at glory. Take our advice and play left to the fairway and leave yourself a fairly straightforward short iron to the green.
For what is essentially a cheap and cheerful course (the green fees are much lower than the up-market courses in the area), it's impressive that the course in in such good condition. The fairways, the odd drainage issue aside, are in generally great shape and the well contoured greens give consistent roll.
In short, this is a course without pretension. You'll be welcomed with open arms no matter what your handicap, and probably walk away with a score that makes your heart sing, even though you know that it's not truly representative of what you would score on a championship course. If you're fairly new to golf, or have beginners in your group, this is a great choice.
