Golfing in North East Malaysia

golf stick

The north eastern states Pahang, Kelantan and Terengganu have several excellent golf courses. These three provinces are maybe more visited for the National parks (Taman Negara), Cameron Highlands and the tea plantations, Genting Highlands, Bukit Tingi and Frazer Hill. And conveniently I skip the excellent islands where many tourist enjoy themselves with diving in the tropical waters and swim as if in an aquarium

Playing golf in this part of Malaysia should not be discarded. Some of the most scenic golf courts of Malaysia are found here.

Maybe this overview gives fewer golf courses but they are not of lesser quality. On the contrary, golfing on the east coast is another step on the ladder, so to say. The natural beauty is even more abundant then in other areas in Malaysia. So, let's see where you can play.

You can click on the name of the golf course on the map below.

The Astana Golf & Country Club is the most renown golf club in Kuantan, located only 15 minutes drive from the Kuantan city center. The nickname of this 27 hole, 72 par championship course is "The Gem of the East" which has obviously to do with the way the course is build in the rolling hills. There's a quite a few water elements in the course makes the course a challenge, even for experienced golfers.

Bukit Tinggi Golf & Country Club Bukit Tinggi Golf & Country Club

The Bukit Tinggi Golf & Country Club is a 40 minutes drive from Kuala Lumpur and 10km off the East-West Karak Highway.

Like the Awana, Bukit Tinggi is located in the hills which creates a beautiful natural scenery but also a challenging course. The rolling hills ay 1000 meter altitude make it maybe a bit cooler but not easier. You will play through bunker and water ponds but if you miss the ball might end up in the jungle and will be really lost.
