4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Damai Golf & Country Club: As the first Arnold Palmer-designed golf course in Malaysia, Damai G&CC features two contrasting nine-hole loops. Both head out-and-back from the clubhouse into wonderfully natural environments. On the front-nine the holes skirt the impressive foothills of Mount Santubong, while the back-nine loops around the resort hotel, with four glorious holes bordering the South China Sea.

The front-nine (Mountain-nine) includes a mix of open and tree-lined parkland holes that follow the contours of the mountain foothills. Here the setting is rugged natural rainforest. The back-nine (Ocean-nine) hugs the mangroves and rocky foreshore of the South China Sea. From the par-4 15th to the snaking par-5 18th the South China Sea is ever-present on the leftside of each hole. On both nines the smallish greens will test the accuracy of your approach work, while a few tightish drives will need to be made, especially on a couple of the more tree-lined holes.

MOST MEMORABLE HOLE: The signature 140-metre par-3 17th plays from a slightly elevated tee, down to a green surrounded on three sides by the South China Sea. Club selection is critical, not least when the sea breezes pick up in intensity.

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.
