Where2Golf says: 

Saujana Golf & Country Club (Bunga Raya course): Although Saujana's Palm course hosts the big professional tour events, the Bunga Raya course remains many people's favourite. Whereas the tour players get a slightly longer and (some might say) more forgiving layout to play on, the Bunga Raya is nicknamed the Crocodile because of its powerful bite. It is tighter and more undulating than the Palm, presenting a stern but thoroughly enjoyable test for the handicap golfer. Fream's fabulous layout twice takes you across an old railway cutting and into a former palm oil plantation (although the immense variety of trees, constantly undulating terrain and lush jungle vegetation doesn't make the "plantation" concept immediately apparent). Half the front-nine and half the back-nine are played across the railway tracks. Throughout, Fream serves up one excellent golf hole after another, making excellent use of the constant elevation changes and a wonderfully natural setting. The surrounding jungle vegetation, oasis like environment and frequently seen monkeys often steal the show. If you've ever played Pinehurst No.2 in Carolina, you'll have some idea of the short game test that also awaits on the Bunga Raya course. The greens are fast and sloping, and if missed your ball can easily go rolling away down a steep run-off, requiring a delicate pitch or chip back onto the putting surface. Among many memorable holes, the par-4 4th is riddled with bunkers in the landing area for your tee-shot, the island green par-3 17th is a gem. If you dare, a 330-yard carry over water can be attempted at the closing par-5 18th.

Did you know?

The name Saujana originates from an old Malay expression "sejauh di sana", meaning "as far as the eye can see". Bunga Raya is the name of Malaysia's national flower, also known as the hibiscus. The railway cutting that you cross on two occasions, is part of a now disused railway system that was once used to transport palm oil and rubber from the neighbouring plantations. The Saujana Resort was carved from a former plantation known as the Pilmore Estate.
