The Palm Resort Golf and Country Club, located 30kms north of the Malaysian border city of Johor Bahru, ranks among the region's most challenging and attractive golf courses. All three world class Palm Resort Golf and Country Club courses have 18 holes and are named after types of flowers which grow around this four-star resort.
Allamanda, the most relaxing of the three courses, is named after a bright yellow flower. Half of the holes on the competitive Cempaka course, named after a magnolia hardwood tree, contain water obstacles. Melati, named after a white jasmine flower, is the longest of the three courses and includes the longest hole and largest bunker of any golf course in Malaysia.
Golf carts are mandatory on all three Palm Resort Golf and Country Club courses and their hire is included in all green fees. After a long day on the links, golfers can relax beneath the ventilated high ceilings of the clubhouse, purchase supplies at the golf boutique, or relax at the health centre.
