Bukit Jawi Golf Resort (Hill course)

3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.

Est. 1992

Bukit Jawi Golf Resort (Hill course): Laid out on pleasantly and continually undulating terrain, Bukit Jawi can boast two excellent, challenging and very absorbing championship layouts. The Hill course, rather than the slightly shorter and more technical Lake course, will encourage big-hitters with its usually good-width fairways, even if six or seven of them require blind, uphill drives from the tee. Good bunkering and a pleasant line of palms (and other tree varieties), ensure every hole benefits from good definition. Among many memorable holes, the excellent downhill par-3 12th is seriously defended by a small lake in front of the green. The long par-3 16th, heading in the opposite direction, also utilises the same lake. Elevation changes and substantive greenside bunkering are bigger factors here than water hazards, although the 9th and 18th holes have threatening water hazards crossing the fairways, both warranting a clear strategy from tee-to-green. If you've navigated your way around the course and putted well on its often elevated, not overly fast greens, prepare yourself for a serious putting challenge at the seemingly innocuous par-4 17th. Your approach shot should factor in a putting surface that shelves steeply from right to left. This is a green that's seen several top golfers struggling to get down in four or more, the "victims" claiming it is too sloping and too unfair ! A recent focus on improved green-keeping and maintenance is showing good results.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
