Tropicana Golf & Country Resort (East course)

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

Est. 1993

Tropicana Golf & Country Resort (East course): Tropicana offers 27 excellent holes of championship golf (on the 18-hole East and 9-hole West courses), in combination with some of the most impressive country club facilities anywhere in Malaysia. It also takes you on a tour of some of the capital's most expensive, often mansion-like, real estate. Although this top-end housing is arranged around most of the course perimeter, with three towering apartment blocks dominating the view on the back-nine (East course), Tropicana is nonetheless a very pleasing, constantly undulating and excellently laid out golf course. There may be some local golfers who are wary of playing here lest they put a ball through a mansion-sized window, but unless you hit a savage and unpredictable hook shot with your driver, the real estate (and its discreet protective fencing) will not be in harm's way. On the East course (18-hole) and West course (9-hole) you will find top-quality green-keeping, as well as a fine array of bunkering and water hazards, some with rock features and waterfalls to enhance the often garden like qualities of this thoroughly captivating parkland layout. Name plates will help you identify the wonderful variety of trees planted around this elegant and attractive course. Good-width fairways and a wide band of short semi-rough make ball-finding easy and can create an impression of a relatively easy-going course, provided you stay out of the water, most prevalent on the East's front-nine and the West course.
