Sutera Harbour Golf & Country Club

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1998

Sutera Harbour Golf & Country Club: Nestled between the shoreline of the South China Sea and the bustling city of Kota Kinabalu, the Sutera Harbour Resort is home to a 27-hole championship golf course. The layout stretches to all corners of this 384-acre residential and leisure development, which is also home to a large marina and two luxury hotels.

The Graham Marsh-designed golf course, comprises three nine-hole loops that each play out-and-back from a central clubhouse. Each nine is characterised by a mix of tree-lined and open parkland holes, where large jigsaw bunkers provide plenty of stylish defence along the fairways and around the greens.

The Lakes-nine (holes 1-9) includes some of the most threatening water hazards, not least directly in front of its final green. The Heritage-nine (holes 10-18) is played alongside the Magellan Sutera Resort, while the Garden-nine (holes 19-27) heads past the Pacific Sutera Hotel. The Garden-nine, at the southern end of the development, also gets you directly alongside the South China Sea for three very memorable holes. The signature 330-yard par-4 6th (hole No.24) is one of those seaside holes.
