Berjaya Hills Golf & Country Club

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1995

Berjaya Hills Golf & Country Club: Previously known as Bukit Tinggi, the Berjaya Hills course is a stylish and testing championship layout, skilfully woven into some of the world's oldest rain forest. Stunning tropical flora covers the steep hills on either side of this out-and-back layout.

Looking down onto the course from one of the tree-covered ridges, you'll notice some rather novel structures. Among them an Alsace-styled hotel village (modelled on Colmar in France) and a huge French chateau conference centre. Somehow they do actually fit in with the surroundings!

The steep-sided hills here are mirrored on the golf course by the "himalayan" ridges and peaks of the distinctive earthmounding, and extravagant slopes on the greens.

With the possible exception of the par-4 4th (which requires a very precise tee shot, then blind approach over a jungle-filled ravine), the holes here are well-designed, excellently bunkered, always testing and probing, but not always excessively penal for the occasional wayward shot. There is a bit of room to breath!

Although variable maintenance standards have been commented on in the past, the picturesque backdrops and scenery may mitigate. Holes like the downhill par-5 10th are bordered by dense pristine jungle. The also downhill 12th is as good a risk-reward, go-for-the-green par-4 as you'll find. The par-5 18th brings the round to a fitting and dramatic finish, with a tough approach shot over water to a rocky-fronted, elevated green.

Did you know?

Located at 2,500 feet above sea level, in some of the world's oldest tropical rainforest, the Berjaya Hills resort owes some of its popularity to the cooler air found here compared to that of downtown Kuala Lumpur.

Although less than an hour's drive from KL, Berjaya Hills (like nearby Awana Genting Highlands) is located at the western edge of the Malaysian state of Pahang ... a former sultanate that occupies the central and eastern part of the Malay peninsula.

There have been many spectacular development plans for the area bordering Berjaya Hills. A full scale replica of the Acropolis is one possibility, as well as a huge German-style Rhine castle. Although these plans have yet to come to fruition, what does exist is the spectacular French-themed Colmar Tropicale village and The Chateau Spa Resort, both perched just above the course.

Also in the neighbourhood are the jungle's ever-present residents, including macaque and dusky-leaf (shy) monkeys, as well as baboons and hornbills, which you may glimpse on rare occasions.

    Colmar Tropicale is a French themed resort, inspired by the original Colmar village in Alsace. A picture postcard come alive! At its heart is Colmar Square, a cobblestone central courtyard where you can enjoy outdoor dining and street performances. The village looks down onto the Berjaya Hills golf course. You could also opt to stay in the neighbouring Chateau Spa and Wellness Resort, which is modelled after the Haut-Koenigsbourg, a medieval castle in the Vosges Hills of Alsace. The Chateau offers all the delights of an 18th century Renaissance French Boutique Hotel & Spa.

Tournaments

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
