Tiara Melaka Golf & Country Club

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

Est. 1994

Tiara Melaka Golf & Country Club: Within its 27-hole layout, Tiara Melaka contains the superb Woodland-nine, as good a nine-hole loop of jungle golf as you'll find anywhere in Malaysia. With dense jungle lining the way, and a few monkeys probably looking on, this immensely attractive rain forest environment contains many pleasantly undulating and very picturesque holes.

The par-4 3rd on the Woodland layout is a gem, requiring a strategic decision on the tee, either lay-up and leave a longer approach shot, or drive over a stream that diagonally crosses the fairway, with a tall cluster of trees as your marker.

The Meadow-nine gives solid support to the Woodland. Although very well laid out, it doesn't quite provide the same level of naturalness or tropical scenery. The final three holes on the Meadow-nine provide an excellent finish. There's plenty of water to be crossed, towering trees to be avoided (on the fairway at 17!) and a fairway hugging lake to be avoided all the way along the rightside of the 18th.

The Lake-nine, although containing some enjoyable and testing holes, is not quite in the same league as the Woodland or Meadow, the combination on which most tournaments are played.

Although the immaculate greens are large (occasionally huge), the fairways vary from good-width to testingly tight. Maintenance at Tiara Melaka is generally good, although if improved a few notches, this is a layout that could challenge for inclusion amongst Malaysia's very best.

Tiara Melaka's club logo depicts the world's smallest deer, the mouse deer, which is also the state symbol for Malacca.

Just outside the city of Malacca (in the Malay language Melaka) you'll find four well-rated and enjoyable golf courses. 35 km N of the city centre is the A'Famosa Resort and a Ross Watson design. Just 15 km NE of the centre are three clubs that almost touch at their boundaries: Ayer Keroh (Ghaffar Baba), Tiara Melaka (Nelson & Wright) and Orna (Andy Dye).

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.
