The Royal Selangor Golf Club (New course)


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

Where2Golf says: 

The Royal Selangor Golf Club (New course): As well as being Malaysia's oldest golf club, Royal Selangor is home to two fine parkland courses that sit easily among the country's elite. 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 pleasant parkland New course, will ensure your game is given a thorough workout. Water hazards, mainly in the form of monsoon drains (ditches), are used sparingly, only putting in a few telling appearances.

Perhaps the layout's opening and closing holes will linger longest in the memory. The relatively short par-4 1st requires an opening drive played directly at KL's most famous building, the Petronas Twin Towers. The good-length par-4 18th brings you back to the two-storey red-roofed clubhouse, with water providing an escort along the fairway's full length on the rightside.

Did you know?

The history of Royal Selangor began when several coffee planters decided to establish a golf club in Kuala Lumpur. On Friday, Jan 13, 1893, they called a meeting through a notice in the Selangor Journal; this brief notice constituted, for all practical purposes, the founding 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 the Club was renamed The Royal Selangor Golf Club, following the granting of its 'Royal' designation by the country's head of state, His Majesty the Yang di-Pertuan Agong of Malaysia.
