Many resorts have been designed by world-renowned golfing greats such as Jack Nicklaus, Robert Trent-Jones, Max Wexler, Gary Player, Greg Norman, Arnold Palmer and Ted Parslow. Golfers can tee-off in the rolling landscapes next to the jungle, overlooking the South China Sea, or nestled among the skyscrapers in one of the 26 courses that are less than a 45-minute drive from Kuala Lumpur.

Penang offers a further five luscious golf resorts and the islands of Langkawi have two courses renowned for their panoramic views. Such high standard courses has resulted in events such as the Malaysian Open to be hosted and sanctioned by the Asia PGA Tour as well as the European PGA tour, The Volvo Masters of Asia and the first ever IAGTO Asia Golf Tourism Convention.

Golf in Malaysia is also affordable. One item of golfing equipment with a maximum weight of 15kg will be carried free with Malaysia Airlines and green fees range from €7 to £100, offering something for everyone. Malaysia’s golfing resorts have also been developed with a keen eye for world-class amenities and great surrounding holiday attractions for a well-rounded vacation.
