Swing to success. Have a “tee”riffic time playing golf. Malaysia offers over 200 golf courses and some are the finest courses of their kind in the world. These golf courses which have the best facilities and amenities around, allow you to tee off on the mountains and hills, along the sea shore, amidst towering rainforests and within the city itself.

Some were designed by renowned designers and golfers alike, including Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Greg Norman, Peter Thomson, Ronald Fream, Robert Trent Jones, Ross Watson, J Michael Poellot, and Max Wexler – who have all brought out the best features of the environment while incorporating their own unique signature skills. Most of these courses are built as part of 5-star resorts and luxury clubs.

With such world-class courses, it is not surprising that Malaysia has been playing host to a number of local and international golf tournaments including the prestigious CIMB Classic, Maybank Malaysian Open, the 1999 World Cup, the Women’s World Cup in 2000. Tourism Malaysia also organises the highly successful World Amateur Inter-Team Golf Championship. This annual tournament brings together amateur golfers from the world over to play in some of the best courses in Malaysia while they can spend their free time relishing the fascinating sights and sounds of Malaysia.
