Templer Park Country Club

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

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.

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.
