Where2Golf says: 

Awana Genting Highlands Golf & Country Resort: Courses are sometimes described as tight, you then thankfully discover only a few holes fit the description. That's not the case here at the Awana golf course, located within the very popular Genting Highlands holiday and entertainment resort. The Awana layout exudes undulating tightness from start to finish. Drama, excitement and an environment of jungle-clad hills all await. When you get to the 12-metre wide fairway at the very tight par-4 14th, you'll be begging for more space from the tee, but the closing stretch will keep demanding your straightest game. Anything seriously off-line is unlikely to be seen again, with thick jungle and dangerous water hazards lying in wait. Although the presence of water is infrequent, your nerve will be tested at the par-3's, especially with ponds to cross directly in front of the 4th and 15th greens. Accompanying the tight, tree-lined holes, (where many fir trees are mixed in with indigenous and much broader leaved jungle species), are some spectacular elevation changes, and many memorable views. The backdrop at the par-4 3rd is simply jaw-dropping, with the Genting Highlands hotel and entertainment complex perched 4000 feet above you at the top of the jungle-clad mountain. Risk-reward shots are regularly presented to golfers playing this layout. Those choosing the safer options, supported by accurate shot placement and good course management, will generally triumph over opponents trying to overpower this very scenic, well-presented and constantly challenging layout. Coping with the usually two-tier greens will also be a major factor in determining how far beyond your normal handicap you score.

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
Golfbaan Stippelberg: located 25 kilometres north-east of Eindhoven, this relatively new addition to championship golf in the Netherlands has fast become one of the country's "must play" courses.
