Saujana Golf & Country Club (Palm course): When the top tour professionals compete at Saujana, it is the longer Palm course (nicknamed "The Cobra"), rather than the tighter Bunga Raya layout ("The Crocodile") on which they try to pocket the big-money prizes.

Fream's design for the Palm is full of significant elevation changes and many excellent and testing golf holes, often with more room off the tee than offered by its tighter companion course. The splendidly laid out front-nine occupies a natural environment, where you can lose yourself amidst the palms and verdant jungle. The character of the back-nine changes somewhat, with offices, apartment blocks and a bit more "civilisation" in view, but with the layout remaining top-quality and always challenging.

In English, Saujana means "as far as the eye can see", and there's no better example than the view from the tee-box of the plunging downhill par-5 3rd where your first shot will need to carry a jungle-filled ravine. Running alongside you at this hole is the par-5 5th of neighbouring Glenmarie Golf Club.

Amongst other memorable holes, the short par-4 4th has trouble written all over it if your attempt to drive the green is wayward. The par-3 5th also demands accuracy and is played to a postage stamp of a green, with deep bunkering to left and right.

Best to play conservatively at the par-5 8th, with its stunning wall of mature palms providing the backdrop and a definite no-go zone down the left side; hitting the green is imperative with jungle right and a severe drop-off left. Arguably one of Fream's best layouts; just be careful "The Cobra" doesn't sink its fangs into you too deeply!

Did you know?

The Saujana Resort was carved from a former palm oil plantation known as the Pilmore Estate. The name Saujana originates from an old Malay expression "sejauh di sana", meaning "as far as the eye can see". There's no better example of this than the view from the tee-box of the par-5 3rd on the Palm course.

The Palm course has hosted many top level professional tournaments, including Asian and European Tour events (see our Tournaments section >by Venue >Saujana).

Published ranking

2020 Golf Digest rating: 5th best course in Malaysia.

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.
