Forest City Golf Resort (Legacy course)

4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.

Where2Golf says: 

Forest City Golf Resort (Legacy course): Just a few miles upstream from the Port of Tanjung Pelepas container facility, and also on the banks of the Pulai River, you'll find the Forest City Golf Resort. This relatively new development includes a large luxury resort hotel, two championship golf courses, excellent practice facilities, and some real estate development.

Nicklaus Design's Legacy course, the slightly older of the two siblings, was laid out on relatively flat terrain beside the river. Here you'll find good-width fairways bordered by large sand areas separating the holes. Palm trees are liberally dotted around in the sandy areas, but not to detract from the course's pleasantly open feel.

Two holes on the Legacy course are played directly at the river's edge. One notable natural landform, a small and "sacred" 25-metre hill is used as a focal point to start and finish the course. Both the 9th and 18th holes use the hill as a backdrop to the finishing greens.

Stay & Play at Forest City: luxury onsite accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.

Latest golf course reviews
Sutton Coldfield Golf Club: located to the north of Birmingham, occupies a small corner of the wonderfully expansive and natural environs of Sutton Park.
