Where2Golf says: 

The Legends Golf & Country Resort (Nicklaus course): The Legends concept is a golfer's dream. Comfortable on-site accommodation and three championship courses, one designed by Jack Nicklaus, another by Arnold Palmer, the third by Gary Player. The dream has yet to be fully realised, but Phase 1 - the Nicklaus signature course and the guest rooms are firmly in place. The front-nine of Nicklaus's layout is another in his long line of very competent and enjoyable designs, with many elevation changes and sprawling bunkering, occupying relatively open terrain. Each hole is full of character, imbued with its own challenges and views onto the neighbouring palm oil plantation. The signature par-5 6th is played from a wonderfully elevated tee, with two routes to the green on the second shot; the cautious "lay-up and pitch-on in three" is available, or the riskier carry over water and "on in two" strategy can be attempted. If the front-nine wasn't testing enough for you, with only the 6th hole bringing water seriously into play, don't worry, the back-nine provides a much stiffer (and very scenic) test. On the inward half, this layout majestically rises to fulfil its five-star billing. Water threatens every tee-shot from the par-4 11th through to the par-4 17th. Several of these holes are amongst the most daunting, yet breathtakingly beautiful that you'll encounter in Malaysia. From wonderfully elevated tees, you look down onto an exotic mix of small lakes and an enchanting array of tropical trees and flowering shrubs. While picking your way round the back-nine, the resident gallery of macaque monkeys may well take the opportunity to observe your progress, especially at the long par-5 16th.
