Royal Perak is not a course I can wholeheartedly recommend, but at least it resembled a golf course when I played here last January, unlike Clearwater Sanctuary. Perak was perhaps the place to be in days gone by but the course itself is rather uninspiring. It’s flat topography and didn’t get me excited and the conditioning wasn’t great. On the upside, there’s decent variety in the holes in terms of length and crossing creeks provided an element of strategy. There’s much better golf on offer around Kuala Lumpur and I personally wouldn’t make a special trip up to Perak to play golf. It’s simply not that good.
