The cheekily named Impian Golf & Country Club course is routed through part of a tropical, hardwood rainforest. According to architect, Ross Watson, “a very difficult site was turned into what is now a pleasant, playable course”.

First opening its doors to golfers in 1994, the 18-hole layout is set across a 142-acre estate where the fairways are set out in two returning loops, the Golden Nine and the Negara Nine. The longest hole on the scorecard is played on the front nine at the par five 5th, which double doglegs its way uphill across water to the green.

On the Negara nine, the signature hole appears at the short 3rd, hole number 12 on the scorecard. With a lake positioned to the front and left of the green, water has to be carried all the way when the pin is cut on the left, though a bail out to the right is always an option for the more cautious golfer.

I am a returning player, having not picked up a club in over 15 years. Still this didn't stop me accepting the opportunity to play with one of the local pros and a mate. I was nervous of course and staring down the inviting first fairway made all the more nervous after a ballooned first tee shot. Playing Texas Scramble took the heat off a bit and I soon got into my stride. The course is a joy to play on. Malaysian courses are pretty tough from what I can gather. Lots and lots of water, sloping fairways, very punitive off fairway and a lot of OBB. Many greens are elevated and the drop offs to jungle and worse are horrendous. Impian has lots of lovely mature trees, inviting holes and excellent turf. The second time I played with golf coach, his whiz-kid 14 year old and a fellow hacker I had just as much fun. I must have lost about 10 balls, and whilst the greens were playing very hard as a result of an unusual dry spell, the course was still playing very well. The club house is large and the restaurant serves up very decent pan-asian food. Fees are not too bad and they usually throw in a buffet lunch for guests.
