18-hole par-72 Garden course (6404 m from back tees).

From the New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE), take the Subang exit. After toll plaza, take Jalan Glenmarie and follow signs to Glenmarie G&CC.
Glenmarie Golf & Country Club (Valley course): With its distinctive blue-roofed clubhouse, which sports an impressive clock tower, Glenmarie boasts two excellent 18-hole championship layouts. The fractionally longer Garden course offers floodlit evening golf, while the Valley course also provides a very pleasant golf outing in a well-presented parkland setting.
Most holes on the constantly undulating Valley course are arranged on either side of a picturesque man-made lake, in an area which winds its way along the valley floor. You may think that will make for a watery round, but water only comes dangerously into play on about five or six holes. The par-5 4th (with Saujana Golf Club on its right) presents the biggest water challenge, with a creek to avoid from your tee-shot and an island green to hit before you get the chance to putt out. This hole, together with the par-4 3rd and par-3 5th are played on the other side of the NKVE Expressway.
Rather than the presence of water, it is more likely that the elevation changes will challenge newcomers, especially with a few tightish drives and some blind tee and approach shots to make.
Much tree planting has given parts of the Valley course an almost orchard like feel, although only around the course perimeter does the flora become thick enough to make ball finding a problem. With greenside bunkers set quite well back from the often flattish and circular greens, clinging semi-rough around the greens is the main "hazard" to avoid.
The more undulating character of the Valley course makes it a favourite with several club members; others prefer the more garden-like charms of its companion. As ever, best to play them both and then decide !
