Black Forest Golf & Country Club

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

Est. 1996

Black Forest Golf & Country Club is home to a good quality course to play located close to the Malaysia-Thailand border, about as far north as you can go in the country. Its wide fairways make it a favourite with golfers of all levels, its popularity also based on the fact that it is a public, non-membership course. Formerly a sugar cane and rubber plantation, the layout occupies lightly tree-lined, flattish terrain. The undulating greens are generally well-protected by large bunkers.
List of courses: Malaysia - Peninsula
