Where2Golf says: 

The Mines Resort & Golf Club, one of Malaysia's top golf courses, is enjoyed by a small and exclusive membership, with limited opportunities for outside visitors to play (see below - Who Can Play & When). If you are lucky enough to tee it up here, you can marvel at how Trent Jones II transformed one of the world's largest tin mines into a spectacular and world class golf course. The front nine is laid out through natural and jungle bounded terrain, with occasional water hazards complementing the impressive bunkering, which can be especially deep and protective around the excellent greens. Natural elevation changes are used to create some of the most memorable holes. Two such gems, are the risk-reward, downhill, short par-4 6th (with a deep swale awaiting anything hit left), and the plunging par-4 9th with its knee-trembling tee-shot and panoramic backdrop. Perhaps the show-stealer on the front-nine is the par-3 2nd, played across a jungle-filled ravine, towards a wonderfully imposing tree, the roots of which appear to be more above than below ground. The jungle of the front-nine gives way to a lakeside back-nine, where many challenging holes are played alongside the large Mines Resort lake (formerly the heart of the huge tin mine). An array of large buildings flank the opposite side of the lake, most impressive of these is the Palace of the Golden Horses, which you can closely inspect at the par-4 12th. Whether jungle-side or lakeside, Trent Jones' layout never ceases to challenge and enthral, with the quality of presentation always impressive.

Did you know?

Formerly the site of the world's largest open cast tin mine, the Hong Fatt mine ceased operations in 1982 and was acquired in 1988 by one of Malaysia's top business entrepreneurs, Tan Sri Lee Kim Yew. He set about transforming the derelict site into the stunning Mines Resort, and with the help of golf course architect Robert Trent Jones II, created a top-quality resort location just south of Kuala Lumpur. The resort's exclusive and prestigious golf course has hosted a number of significant top level tournaments (see Tournaments section - by Venue - Mines Resort).
