Palm Garden Golf Club

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

Est. 1993

Palm Garden Golf Club: Part of the IOI Resort City, Palm Garden originally offered 27 holes of championship golf. In 2009 the layout was scaled back to 18 holes, and at the same time substantially improved. The IOI-nine was divested for residential development, while the Putra and Palm nines were transformed into the current Eugenia and Bismarck nines.

The front-nine loop (Eugenia) presents a pleasant palm-lined parkland environment, with not insignificant elevation changes. After a relatively easy-going start, played under the watchful gaze of the Puteri Palma apartment blocks, things ramp-up at the straight par-5 4th ... OB flanks the rightside of this hole, and water needs to be crossed in front of the green. There's not too much more water on the front-nine, as you play up to and away from the same condo blocks you saw at the beginning.

The presence of water increases as you get into the back-nine loop, becoming a constant threat from the par-5 13th onward. The culmination of a collection of small ponds on the back-nine, comes at the island-green par-17th and the peninsula-green of the attractive par-4 18th. Both holes make full use of the same small lake.

With various hi-rise blocks, electricity pylons, and some busy roads beyond the course boundaries, you'll not get the feeling you've escaped from KL's urban embrace. But the Parslow-Winter revamp of Palm Garden will give you plenty of golfing challenges to shift your focus from the bustle of city life.
