Since opening in 1984, Penang Golf Club has established itself as one of Malaysia's leading courses. Back in 1992, it hosted the Malaysian Open where Vijay Singh was victorious and has since changed its name from the Bukit Jambul Golf Club and been reopened back in 2012.

The course is designed by renowned architect Robert Trent Jones Jr and is the only championship golf course on the Penang Island and just a 10 minute drive from the local airport.
