   The Royal Selangor Golf Club (New course) Est. 1893

Where2Golf says: 

The Royal Selangor Golf Club (New course): Royal Selangor is clearly amongst the eilte of Kuala Lumpur's golfing venues, as well as being the oldest golf club in Malaysia. RSCG's New course, which dates from 1924, wraps itself around the front-nine of its longer and more renowned companion, the Old course. The tightish fairways and strategic bunkering of the New course, will ensure your game is given a challenging workout, even if water is not such a factor in this pleasantly tree-lined and flattish terrain. Perhaps the first hole, a shortish par-4, will stay in your mind as much as any other, with an opening drive towards KL's most famous building, the Petronas Twin Towers.

Did you know?

The history of Royal Selangor began when several coffee planters decided to establish a golf club in Kuala Lumpur. On Friday the 13th of January 1893, they called for a meeting through a notice in the Selangor Journal; this brief notice constituted, for all practical purposes, the birth notice of the Selangor Golf Club. In 1920 the club took up residence at its present site, having been forced to move from the original Petaling Hill site. By 1931 the club could boast 36-holes, laid out as the Old and New courses. In 1963 Selangor Golf Club received its 'Royal' designation from His Majesty the Yang DiPertuan Agong, the DYMM Tunku Syed Putra Ibni Al-Marhum Syed Hasan Jamallulail, the Raja of Perlis Indera Kayangan. With the conferment the Club was renamed The Royal Selangor Golf Club. Royal Selangor hosted the inaugural Malaysian Open, and become the home of the Malaysian Open for many years after that.
