Where2Golf says: 

Poresia Golf Club & Resort (Orchid / Sakura course): Four interchangeable nine-hole loops - Hibiscus, Orchid, Sakura and Bougainvillea - make-up the 36 championship holes laid out in this former palm oil plantation. The club usually combine Orchid and Sakura at weekends; on weekdays you could find yourself playing any permutation of the four nines. The Orchid course is arguably the best of the four; challenging from start to finish, but likely to be tough-going for high-handicappers. As with the Sakura, the terrain is constantly undulating and lightly palm-tree lined (few other tree varieties compete with the ever-present palms). The generally good-width fairways are sometimes flanked by large railway-sleepered bunkers, while beyond the first-cut, deepish grassy rough awaits. Maintenance standards are generally good at Poresia, especially so around the large, gently contoured greens and their many grassy run-off areas. The 13th (Orchid) is played from the highest point on the Poresia domain, a wonderfully elevated tee-box providing an excellent view of the surrounding plantation; the long downhill par-4 stretching out in front of you. The Sakura course becomes a little tighter in places and less undulating than the Orchid, especially through its middle section. A meandering creek ensures plenty of water hazards lie in wait in Sakura's middle section. A few holes have creeks crossing the fairways twice, setting up some excellent risk-reward opportunities for longer hitters. Although Orchid / Hibiscus are the strongest combination (both originally designed AND built by Pete Dye), the Orchid / Sakura will provide low and mid-handicappers with an excellent and testing outing.

Did you know?

Poresia is located within the Leisure Farm domain, a former palm oil plantation, where the development of high-quality housing does not intrude on and cannot be seen from the golf course. Based on its location in Malaysia and close proximity to Singapore, the name Poresia was created by combining the endings of the words SingaPORE and MalaySIA. In this Japanese owned and managed club, three of the nines are named after national flowers : Hibiscus (Malaysia), Orchid (Singapore) and Sakura (Japan).
