Where2Golf says: 

Clearwater Sanctuary Golf Resort: A fabulous championship layout and an idyllic backdrop of several large, lily-fringed lakes are the key ingredients that ensure Clearwater Sanctuary's ranking as one of Asia's best golf courses. Together with Saujana, it invariably tops most Malaysian rankings, and understandably so. In this quiet and very natural environment, large, attractive rainwater trees give the front-nine a distinctive, mature parkland character. There is usually enough space between the trees to encourage use of the big-timber from the tee, but stray too far offline and dense jungle awaits. A dramatic change of scene arrives at the par-4 10th, where the tree-lined front-nine gives way to a more open environment and the arrival of stunning lakeside scenery. Meandering their way alongside four large and very attractive lakes, the back-nine is full of wonderfully designed holes, all flanked by water on one side. The downhill par-3 11th is a fabulous hole, beautifully framed by the Club Lake and deep bunkering to the right of the green. It is followed by a big-hitters delight - the chance to drive the green at the dog-legging par-4 12th, only a 260-metre carry required from the back-tees ! The back-nine continues on its way with a stunning collection of lakeside holes, not too much elevation change, but plenty of watery challenges and scenery that will keep your camera busily employed.

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.

Did you know?

Clearwater Sanctuary's wonderful array of large lakes, one of them over one kilometre in length, are the product of former open-cast tin-mining. Some of the original dredging equipment, used in the excavation process, is on display in front of the clubhouse. >> The large rainwater trees that line the front-nine holes, are so called because their small leaves often create light leafy "showers as they fall from the trees. >> On the leftside of the 2nd hole you can glimpse the "hollow" buildings that made up the film set of "Anna and the King", a recent re-make of the better known "King and I".

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game.
