Horizon Hills Golf & Country Club

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

Est. 2008

Horizon Hills Golf & Country Club: this relative newcomer to the golfing scene in Johor is part of a master-planned golf and real estate development. Here you'll find an excellently crafted, but very watery Ross Watson layout.

If you're happy with the preponderance of water hazards, there's plenty to admire in this flowing and well-maintained layout. But there's not too much to look at beyond the course boundary except residential housing, lightly screened by a pleasant variety of indigenous trees.

Described as a "breathtaking and challenging piece of art within a 1,200-acre freehold township development" there's no denying the layout has been excellently crafted. The holes make a clockwise loop around a housing sub-division on the front-nine, and head out-and-back in pairs on the back-nine.

All the while water is a constant threat, usually running the full length on one side of the holes, or sometimes cutting across the fairways in the form of good-width ditches. It almost goes without saying, all the par-3s are played alongside water, except the short par-3 16th ... that's the one with an island-green!

Tournaments

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.

Prince's Golf Club, Kent (UK)

Here at Prince’s Golf Club you'll find 27 excellent holes of links golf. Just over the fence and sharing similar terrain is Royal St George’s; but Prince’s is far from overshadowed by its venerable neighbour. The three nine-hole loops at Prince's, laid out over gently undulating terrain, are sure to bring a smile of satisfaction to all lovers of links golf.

Stay&Play at Prince's: excellent onsite Lodge accommodation available
