Where2Golf says: 

Bukit Jambul Country Club: Villas, apartment blocks and the huge Equatorial Hotel provide most of the backdrop to this very tight and often dramatically undulating, parkland golf course. Although surrounded by the sights and sounds of the city, there are also enough jungle clad hills around to remind you that Penang Island is lush and tropical, much favoured by holiday-makers and beach-goers. The fairly compact Bukit Jambul layout is not one for wayward big-hitters. The sharply doglegging, dramatically downhill opening par-4, provides a clear signal of the tightness of things to come, while also highlighting the excellent presentation and maintenance standards you'll find here. By the time you reach the super-tight par-4 4th, you'll either have the measure of the course, or it will have the measure of you. Providing you are happy to be challenged and tested on a relatively technical layout where accurate shot-making is paramount, then this course will quickly grow on you, and reward you with many attractively designed holes and interesting views. The sharply descending par-4 10th is perhaps the most dramatic plunge you and your ball will have to make, while the also downhill, long par-3 8th provides one of several testing tee shots. Around the often smallish greens, Trent Jones has chosen to "hide" many of the bunkers, giving them grassy faces that blend into the fairways and semi-rough. Bukit Jambul may feel a bit tight and constraining at times, but it is a thoroughly enjoyable and very attractive course. The undulating terrain and unusual mix of jungle and city views, adding to the undoubted pleasures of "The Jewel of Penang".
