Palm Resort Golf & Country Club

Located near the Senai Airport, Palm Resort Golf & Country Club is a premier golf destination with three distinctively individual 18-hole championship courses designed by Hiromasa Inagawa and a spectrum of facilities for sports and recreation. The award-winning Palm Resort Golf & Country Club was voted No. 1 in Johor by Golf Malaysia Magazine in 2001/2002 and No. 2 Best Golf Resort in Asia in 2002 by Asian Golf Monthly Magazine.

The three 18-hole championship golf courses - the Allamanda, Cempaka and Melati at Palm Resort have been named after the flora from Malaysia.  The Palm Resort site covers 800 acres of rolling hills and picturesque lakes. Each course features an abundance of landscaped gardens and natural flora. The fairways are often flanked by water and large bunkering is a factor both from the tee and around the greens.

The Allamanda Course hosted the Johnnie Walker Super Tour 1998 and the Davidoff Nations Cup (World Cup Qualifiers) in 2002 and 2004. Allamanda is a resort course with breathtaking scenery, water features, daunting sand bunkers, and well-maintained Tifdwarf Bermuda greens. The two signature holes are the 2nd and 15th. Fairways and roughs are strongly undulating and water comes into play on 11 of the holes on the Allamanda Course. Beautifully landscaped terrain punctuated with elements of challenge in water hazards, massive bunkers, elevation changes and some daunting doglegs will ensure that every club in your bag is put to good use!

The Cempaka Course is a championship course and requires the utmost concentration. It is the course most often used for local tournaments. The course measures 7,156 yards from the pro tees. Threatening doglegs, narrow fairways, nine water holes and more than 60 sand bunkers make careful club selection important to score well here. Extreme caution is needed on the island fairway feature on the 9th, the coffee plantation between holes 12 and 13, as well as the ravine on the 14th.

The more open Melati plays as a links course, an out-and-back layout with a first tee only start, and is the longest of the three courses at 7,209 yards from the black tees. With 68 bunkers and 6 water holes, it also has many unique features, including what is reputed to be the largest bunker in Malaysia at the par-3 2nd, and the country longest hole at the 684-yard par-5 15th. Spectacular views across the Melati course can be had from the most of holes elevated tees.

A full driving range, golf academy, and short game facilities are available to all golfers at Palm Resort. The clubhouse is designed according to Malaysian architecture with ventilated high ceilings, wooden rafters and multi-tiered roof. The clubhouse offers male and female locker rooms that are spacious, a buggy Terminal, a fitness center and a golf boutique.

Golf at Palm Resort is an unforgettable Malaysia golfing experience.
