TPC Kuala Lumpur (East course)

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

Est. 1991

TPC Kuala Lumpur (East course): At just over 6000 metres from the tips, and floodlit for night golf, the East course is shorter and easier-going than TPC KL's more challenging and bigger dimension West course. Although the West may have the greater elevation changes, the East course also has a pleasantly undulating parkland character, with several nicely elevated tee-boxes, providing a good look at the demands ahead.

The lightly tree-lined, contoured fairways provide good definition to each hole, some of them requiring tightish drives. The opening holes of the back-nine, flanked by OB and condominiums, is where straight-hitting from the tee is at a premium, much more so than on the easier-going front-nine. Good bunkering, clinging rough around the greens and, as your round progresses, ever more frequent water hazards, ensures that TPC KL's No.2 course continually tests and probes your overall game.

The more interesting and challenging back-nine loop contains a tough closing stretch, with plenty of water in play from the tee shot at the par-4 13th through to the green of the par-4 18th. There's an island-green par-3 at 15, while the par-5 16th throws down one of the sternest tests. The heavily bunkered par-4 18th provides a fitting finale in front of the clubhouse on a huge double-green shared with the par-4 2nd.

The putting surfaces here are usually excellent, with many subtle slopes and borrows to be reckoned with. Although not as scenic or as impressive a layout as the West course, the East still provides a very pleasant golf outing, and the opportunity to card a respectably good score, even on a first outing.

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.
