Where2Golf says: 

Saujana Golf & Country Club (Palm course): When the top tour professionals compete at Saujana, it is the longer Palm course, rather than the tighter Bunga Raya layout, on which they try to scoop the big-money prizes on offer. Fream's design for the Palm is full of significant elevation changes and many excellent and testing golf holes, although often with more room off the tee than offered by its companion. The front-nine of the Palm course occupies a natural environment, allowing you the opportunity to lose yourself amidst tropical jungle and splendidly laid out golf holes. The character of the back-nine changes somewhat, with offices, apartment blocks and "civilisation" more noticeable, but with the layout remaining top-quality and always challenging. In English, Saujana means "as far as the eye can see", and there's no better example than the view from the tee-box of the plunging downhill par-5 3rd - your first shot will need to carry a jungle-filled ravine; running alongside you at this hole is the par-5 5th of neighbouring Glenmarie Golf Club. Amongst the most memorable holes, the short, par-4 4th, has trouble written all over it if your attempt to drive the green is wayward. One of the toughest of them all is the par-4 8th, with its stunning wall of mature palms providing the backdrop and a definite no-go zone down the left side; hitting the green is imperative with jungle right and a severe drop-off left. The par-3 5th also demands accuracy and is played to a postage stamp of a green, with deep bunkering to left and right. This is one of Fream's very best layouts, which carries the nickname "The Cobra" - just be careful it doesn't eat you up and spit you out !

Did you know?

The name Saujana originates from an old Malay expression "sejauh di sana", meaning "as far as the eye can see". There's no better example of this than the view from the tee-box of the par-5 3rd on the Palm course. The Palm course has hosted many top level professional tournaments, including Asian and European Tour events. For more details see Top Golf Tournaments at Saujana Golf Club.
The Saujana Resort was carved from a former plantation known as the Pilmore Estate.
