Sungai Long Golf & Country Club
Sungai Long Golf & Country Club was the first signature course designed by Jack Nicklaus in Malaysia and is dubbed as the Garden of Eden by locals.
The par 72 parkland course is consistently ranked amongst the top 15 in the country and boasts a range of challenges for both low and high handicappers. Just 15 minutes from the mesmerising Kuala Lumpur, Sungai Long is most definitely worth playing when on a golf holiday in Malaysia.

The parkland layout at Sungai Long plays at over 7,000 metres from the back tees making it one of Malaysia's longest courses. However, while the big hitters will have an advantage over the 18 holes, many of them require intelligent course management to cement low scores.
As golfers make their way through the course, they will be welcomed by some of the most impressive holes you're likely to play. The 6th hole is a 382 yard par 4th dubbed Boomerang as you play a dog leg right towards a unique two-tiered green, while the 9th plays requires you to hit over a creek, forcing you to choose whether or not you should 'lay-up' or not.
Consistency is key round this course as the gentle undulation and cleverly placed mounds and slopes will be a sure test of your ability to play a variety of shots. Despite the many traps along the way, golfers can enjoy this beautiful course all year round as the fairways use Bermuda grass to withstand the high humidity during summer months.Stats:

The signature hole at Sungai Long is named the Golden Bear after its designer. The 198-yard par-3 17th epitomises the picturesque golf on offer over the full 18. A tee shot carrying one of the four lakes will head towards a green bordered by some devastating bunkers, so miss the green and you could be on for a big score.
The facilities at the golf and country club are equally as impressive as the course itself. A driving range and putting green are available for golfers looking to get in some extra practice. At the clubhouse, there is an outdoor pool with a nearby bar to unwind as well as a selection of tennis, squash and badminton courts, if you wish to continue your leisure activities for the day.
