Shan-Shui Golf & Country Club


4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.

Where2Golf says: 

Shan-Shui Golf & Country Club: This excellently crafted Nelson & Haworth design has bagged its fair share of Malaysian and Asian awards. Previous host to an Asian Tour event, the course roams through a large and undulating area of native jungle and former rubber tree plantation.

Plenty of elevation change, rolling tumbling fairways and large tongued bunkers characterise this stylish and challenging layout, with most holes played against a lush backdrop of jungle-clad hills. Beyond the generally good-width fairways, the jungle's thick vegetation makes an uncompromising landing area for stray shots. As you try to unravel the mysteries of the testing greens, you might enjoy spotting numerous exotic birds, squirrels and monkeys. There's even said to be a resident crocodile in one of the water hazards.

MOST MEMORABLE HOLE: the short par-4 15th (Creek) is played from a tee that sits alongside the Crocodile River, with a creek to be crossed en route to the palm-fringed green. Like several other holes, a clear strategy and accurate shot-making will serve you better than wayward big-hitting.

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

Did you know?

Shan-Shui G&CC is located close to the East Malaysian town of Tawau. The town is the third-largest in Sabah, after Kota Kinabalu City and Sandakan. Tawau lies on the eastern coast of the island of Borneo, facing onto the Celebes Sea. Almost all the other top golf courses in East Malaysia are found on Borneo's north coast, facing onto the South China Sea.

The Celebes Sea is home to 580 of the world's 790 species of reef-building corals, which allows an impressive array of marine life to flourish. Whales, sharks and dolphins, turtles, manta and eagle rays, tuna, barracuda and marlin are all found in abundance. The sea is popular for scuba-diving, fishing and luxury ocean cruising.
