Borneo Golf & Country Club

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

Est. 1995

Borneo Golf & Country Club: with four holes laid out directly alongside the South China Sea and others routed through the predominantly open natural countryside, variety is guaranteed on this Jack Nicklaus signature design. An ever-present wind blows through this well-crafted and well-maintained layout, constantly testing your all-round game.

Occupying predominantly open and relatively flat terrain, both the front and back-nine loops present many trademark Nicklaus challenges. Long threatening lagoons run alongside several fairways on both nines. From the tee and on your approach to the greens, sizeable bunkers add to the layout's aesthetics and its undoubted challenges. The putting surfaces are receptive, but can become treacherously fast during dry spells.
