International Courses Played

For now, this is just a list of the courses I've played elsewhere in the world by country and (where possible) links to their home pages - including Malaysia, Portugal & Spain. In time I'll add what I can remember about them as best I can. If your looking for a good guide to international courses why not try World Golf or Golf Today

Malaysia

See MAGonline for a full course listing for the Malaysian Golf Association. Due to the heat and humidity in this equatorial country a buggy is a must and you have to be aware that a thunderstorm can happen at any time and you must retreat to the club house once the hooter blows. The fairway grass is better on the better quality courses - on the others if you're used to chipping around the greens you may struggle.

Distances are taken from the back tees unless otherwise stated.

Berjaya Hills Golf & Country Club

18 holes, 6312metres, Par 72, Parkland

One of the better courses. Plenty of undulations and stunning views. Unfortunately, as I was using a new camera these are a little on the bright side.

Bukit Kemuning Golf & Country Resort

18 holes, 6371 metres, Par 72, Parkland

One of the better courses. Quite open with wide fairways and plenty of water without the same stunning views. Still experimenting with the camera but only a couple of bright ones.

 

Bukit Beruntung Golf & Country Resort

East Course: 6412 metres, Par 72, Parkland
West Course: 6271 metres, Par 72, Parkland

I can't remember much about this course but I think it was one of those where chipping wasn't as easy but it was reasonable quality. Quite open with wide fairways and a bit of water.

Bukit Unggul Country Club

5858 metres, Par 71, Parkland

This course was further away from my base in Kuala Lumpur - as you can tell by the surrounding jungle and accompanying monkeys! I was told that on occasion if they're nearby you can believe they're laughing if you hit a bad shot. I remember this course being decent quality with plenty of undulations, spectacular views and fairly narrow fairways. If you're off the fairway you'll often find your ball has run of the cart path into one of many ditches. The further away from the fairway you get the less inclined you are to brave the jungle to find it.

Kelantan Golf & Country Club

6377 metres, Par 72, Parkland

No photos of this one I'm afraid so I can't remember much about it.

Kundang Lakes Country Club

6201 metres, Par 72, Parkland

Kundang was the first courses I played in Malaysia and the cheapest I played on. Fairways were reasonably generous with few undulations and a bit of water. I struggled on this course because of the different grass and I'm not used to "flying" everything onto the green - including short shots around the green. If short approach shots (and I mean within a few yards of the green) landed short they simply stopped. I also had my first experience of a stand-on buggy here.

Kinrara Golf Club

6008 metres, Par 71, Parkland

One of the better courses and unusual in that it was surrounded by housing and other buildings. Quite tight with fairly narrow fairways and plenty of water.

Palm Gardens Golf Club

6052 metres, Par 72, Parkland

One of the better courses but disappointing as only 9 holes were open when I visited. Reasonable fairways and plenty of water.
