Carey Island is named after
Englishman Edward Valentine John Carey who introduced the rubber plantation
industry to the area at the start of the 20th century. Situated to the south of
Port Klang and to the north of Banting town, the island is separated from the
Selangor coast by the Langat River.
The Amverton Cove Golf & Island Resort course lies under an hour’s drive from downtown Kuala Lumpur and it’s a Ted Parslow design which first opened its door to customers in 2013. As the terrain is rather flat around here, water comes into view or into play at every hole on the card.
Feature holes include the par four 4th (with a long boardwalk path to the back tees, trees to the left and water to the right of the fairway) and the par three 7th, where putting on the right to left sloping green is further complicated by a swale that runs through the centre of the putting surface.On the back nine, the left doglegged 10th and right doglegged 14th are formidable par fives, each requiring precision play from tee to green. At the closing hole, a large tree hampers approach shots on the peninsular fairway, forcing players to shape their iron shot to the home green around this rather arduous arboreal hazard.
