The Golf Guide to the Top Courses
Where2Golf says: 

TPC Kuala Lumpur (East course): At just over 6000 metres from the tips, and floodlit for night golf, the East course is shorter and easier-going than TPC KL's more challenging and bigger dimension West course. Although the West may have the greater elevation changes, the East course also has a pleasantly undulating parkland character, with several nicely elevated tee-boxes, providing a good look at the demands ahead.

The lightly tree-lined, contoured fairways provide good definition to each hole, some of them requiring tightish drives. The opening holes of the back-nine, flanked by OB and condominiums, is where straight-hitting from the tee is at a premium, much more so than on the easier-going front-nine. Good bunkering, clinging rough around the greens and, as your round progresses, ever more frequent and severe water hazards, ensures that TPC KL's No.2 course continually tests and probes your overall game.

The more interesting and challenging back-nine loop contains a tough closing stretch, with the par-5 16th throwing down one of the sternest tests; played from an elevated tee, water awaits any stray shots to either left or right. At both the par-4 9th and 18th holes, which run in parallel back to the clubhouse, a small lake menacingly guards your approach shots to the respective greens.

The putting surfaces here are usually excellent, with many subtle slopes and borrows to be reckoned with. Although not as scenic or as impressive a layout as the West course, the East still provides a very pleasant golf outing, and the opportunity to card a respectably good score, even on a first outing.
