Berjaya Hills

32nd West Malaysia - Best in Area

Berjaya Hills Golf & Country Club (formerly Bukit Tinggi G&CC) is a 1995 J Michael Poellot design that has hosted a number of important amateur championships. The two closing holes provide an exciting climax to the round.

Palm (Cempaka)

33rd West Malaysia - Best in Area

Set at the southernmost tip of the Malaysian peninsula, the Palm Resort Golf & Country Club boasts three courses. Most consider the Hiromasa Inagawa-designed Cempaka layout – host to the 2005 Asian Senior Masters – to be the premier layout.

The original 9-hole course at Johor Golf & Country Club was laid out in 1968 by Dato' Ahmad Adam and a second nine was added in 1974. The club hosted the Iskandar Johor Open between 2007-2009 with K.J Choi and Retief Goosen among notable winners.

Pulai Springs (Pulai)

The 18-hole Robert Trent Jones II-designed Pulai course is the main golfing attraction at the impressive 27-hole Pulai Springs Resort. A feature hole is the par three 13th with its unusual island tees.

Tanjong Puteri (Plantation)

36th West Malaysia - Best in Area

Set within an old oil palm estate, the Plantation course at the 54-hole Tanjong Puteri Golf Resort was designed by Max Wexler, opening in 1992. The 18-hole layout is floodlit, which allows golfers to play in the cool of the evening.

Cameron Highlands

The fairways at the Cameron Highlands Golf & Country Club lie 5,000 feet above sea level, carved from the forested Malaysian mountains, and some think the course began as a 6-hole layout in 1935, with others citing a 1950s date of origin.
