The Golf Guide to the Top Courses
Where2Golf says: 

TPC Kuala Lumpur (West course): With a major upgrade project completed in the late 2000s, TPC KL's West course has risen again to challenge the likes of Saujana, Kota Permai and The Mines for top honours amongst Malaysia's golf course elite.

The front-nine on the West takes you on an expansive journey, initially climbing up the left side of the layout, before several scenic holes with panoramic views are played at the course's highest elevations, alongside the jungle-clad hills of Bukit Kiara (bukit meaning hill or mountain). At the par-3 8th and the tight and water protected par-4 9th you descend again to the clubhouse.

Encircled by the front-nine, the slightly more open back-nine frequently brings water hazards into play, as well as confronting you with an often spectacular array of bunkering alongside the contoured fairways. Several of the greenside bunkers are deep and unforgiving, should your approach shots be wayward. Like the front-nine, there are plenty of elevation changes - initially sloping away from and then bringing you back down to the clubhouse. The par-4 2nd is one of many challenging holes played from an elevated tee, with water dangerously in play as you approach the green.

Expectations are that the completely re-laid greens will be some of the best around, and the quality of green-keeping will remain high, as befits one of Malaysia's most prestigious golf clubs. [Unlike the East course, the West is not floodlit for night golf].
