Where2Golf says: 

Palm Resort Golf & Country Club is one of Johor's popular golfing venues, boasting three 18-hole championship golf courses - the Allamanda, Cempaka and Melati. Laid out on undulating terrain, all three courses feature an abundance of landscaped gardens and natural flora. The fairways are often flanked by water and large bunkering is a factor both from the tee and around the greens. Allamanda is the easiest-going 'resort' course with extensive landscaping and two signature holes, the 2nd and 15th. The premier member's course - the Cempaka - has water in play on half the holes, and several dog-legging, tight and undulating fairways. It is the course most often used for tournaments. The more open Melati plays as a links course, an out-and-back layout with a 'first tee only' start, and is the longest of the three courses at 7,209 yards from the black tees. With 68 bunkers and 6 water holes, it also has many unique features, including what is reputed to be the largest bunker in Malaysia at the par-3 2nd, and the country's longest hole at the 684-yard par-5 15th.

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