Kuala Lumpur Golf

Golf in Kuala Lumpur

With its stable hot and humid weather, the Kuala Lumpur golf scene is a thriving all-year industry, particularly popular with retirees, working professionals and urban dwellers. You can expect to find beautiful golf clubs with large courses and pleasant greens all over KL, ranging from luxury resorts with platinum level greens, to age-old fields in the heart of the city.

Each is unique with its own challenging and well-maintained obstacles and terrain, such as sand traps, water hazards, and cleverly-placed pins, plus each venue comes with some of the most family friendly facilities you will ever come across. Topping the list of our favourite places to play golf in Kuala Lumpur is the Royal Selangor Golf Club – established in 1893, it has been the venue of international tournaments, with members ranging from corporate giants and industrial heavyweights, to cabinet ministers and foreign diplomats.

Kelab Golf Sentul Raya

Saujana Golf & Country Club

The Saujana is one Malaysia's finest golf courses, with international recognition among world-class players. Sand traps, water hazards, and cleverly-placed pins are some of the challenges on this course. Some of the courses include the Palm Course, aptly dubbed "The Cobra" for its testing and challenging layout. The course plays 6565 yards off the blue tees and 6959 yards from the black. It has the most talked about greens in Malaysia, as putting on the greens is no mean feat.

On the other hand, the Bunga Raya Course or "The Crocodile" is about wide expanses of water and undulating greenery with a terrific sense of freedom created by its clever use of space. Although the course does not have many ravines ands thick woods, it looks deceptively easy. Many have undermined it and fumbled at this challenge.
