Black Forest Golf & Country Club: GOLF COURSE APPEARS TO BE CLOSED ... probably on a permanent basis. Check for current status before planning a visit.

[Original Where2Golf description]: Black Forest Golf & Country Club is home to a good quality course 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.
