Templer Park Country Club: It's not just the layout's iconic limestone hill (Bukit Takun/Takun Hill) that creates a special feel to Templer Park. Sato and Ozaki's excellent design, especially the back-nine, also has a lot to commend it. Add in top quality green-keeping and a comfortable Japanese style clubhouse, and most of the ingredients are in place for a challenging and enjoyable round at one of KL's top golf venues.

The flatter and less imposing front-nine will acquaint you with Ozaki's stylish earthmounding and bunkering, which provide good definition to the holes, helped by a light scattering of trees.

The generally good-width fairways are complemented by others made tighter by occasional water hazards and OB, ensuring the need for accuracy from the tee. Good quality approach work is always needed to avoid the prodigious greenside bunkering.

The more undulating back-nine starts from the highest part of the course, with wonderful views onto the surrounding jungle-clad hills. The 13th and 14th, both par-4s played in a fairly open environment, will give you a chance to draw breath before commencing the tough closing stretch. The second half of the wonderful par-5 15th plunges downhill towards the green, bordered on the right by thick jungle, with much tall bamboo in evidence.

After a blind drive at the par-4 17th, Ozaki ensures you get a good look at the 18th from the tee. The backdrop is the ever-present Bukit Takun, while in front of you is a substantive carry over water, and plenty of bunkering defending the nicely elevated green. If you are in the Kuala Lumpur area, make sure Templer Park is somewhere near the top of your list of places to play.

Did you know?

Bukit Takun, which translates as Takun Mountain, is part of a Malaysia's range of limestone hills and mountains formed over a million years ago. Templer Park Country Club (TPCC) is not to be confused with its near neighbour, Peransang Templer Golf Club (PTGC).

Templer Park has hosted many top-level tournaments, including the Malaysian Open on three occasions (see our Tournaments section >by Venue >Templer Park).

Tournaments

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
