The Legends Golf & Country Resort (Nicklaus course): The Legends concept is a golfer's dream. Comfortable on-site accommodation and three championship courses designed by three golfing legends: Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Gary Player. The dream has yet to be fully realised, but Phase 1 - the Nicklaus signature course and the guest rooms - is firmly in place, together with the first nine holes of the Palmer course.

The front-nine of Nicklaus's layout is another in his long line of very competent and enjoyable designs. Many elevation changes, sprawling bunkering, and a water-defended back-nine all occupy this relatively open terrain. Each hole is full of character, imbued with its own challenges. Beyond the course there are views onto the neighbouring palm oil plantation.

The signature par-5 6th drops 100 feet down from a wonderfully elevated tee, and offers two routes to the green: the cautious "lay-up and pitch-on in three" is available, or the riskier carry over water and (you hope) safely "on in two".

If the front-nine wasn't testing enough for you, with only the 6th hole bringing water seriously into play, the scenic back-nine provides a much sterner test. On the inward half, the layout majestically fulfils its potential. Water threatens every tee-shot from the par-4 11th through to the par-4 17th. Several of these holes are amongst the most daunting, yet breathtakingly beautiful that you'll encounter in Malaysia.

From wonderfully elevated tees, you look down onto an exotic mix of small lakes and an enchanting array of tropical trees and flowering shrubs. While picking your way round the back-nine, the resident gallery of macaque monkeys may well take the opportunity to observe your progress, especially at the long par-5 16th.

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 five wins out of her last five starts on the LPGA Tour. Winning the Chevron Championship also brought the second major championship win of her career.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda's five wins in five starts, when he placed second at the Houston Open. Either side of that, he won The Arnold Palmer, The Players, and then The Masters and The Heritage.

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.
