If you are planning a golf holiday in Malaysia, there is some exciting news regarding the addition of a new golf course.  Golf tourism in Johor, a state in southern Malaysia is already very popular but the new golf course at Forest City Golf Resort is about to take it to another level.

Forest City Golf Resort is a fantastic venue for a golf break.  You will find everything you need and more to enjoy a tremendous golfing experience.  Beginning with the hotel, you can enjoy a luxurious 5-star stay at one of the region’s largest private golf facilities.

If you can tear yourself away from the hotel, there are two excellent golf courses to play at Forest City Golf Resort.

The original golf course at Forest City Golf Resort is called Legacy Golf Course.  This is a big favourite with golfers in Malaysia thanks to the picturesque setting and water features.  The course was designed by Jack Nicklaus with the intention of being the first of three golf courses to open at the venue.

There is a mangrove reservation close by and the golf course blends nicely into the surrounding environment.  In addition to the water features you will find large sand bunkers and undulating fairways, some of which can be quite severe in places.  Many of the greens are well protected and this can make approach play tough if you have not thought about ball position in advance.

The second golf course available at Forest City Golf Resort opened for play in August 2019.  This new addition is called ‘The Classic’ and is an 18-hole championship golf course boasting a three-dimensional garden landscape.  The golf course has been created by architect Liang Guo Kun, who has plenty of experience designing golf courses in China.

The Classic Course is a tougher test than the Legacy Course.  The fairways are much narrower on The Classic Course and coupled with the water hazards and sand, makes accuracy off the tee crucial.  Mounding also plays a big role on this course and the both the fairways and greens are undulating throughout the 18 holes.

The course plays to 7,138 yards from the back tees but there are four tee boxes to choose from making The Classic Course suitable for players of all abilities.

With a third golf course expected to be added soon, Forest City Golf Resort is the place to be for world class golf in Malaysia.

Forest City Golf Resort

An OK course but needs to mature and service not up to standard

Reviewed by ; on
Pretty average course and will be very warm on sunny days with few trees for shelter. The male changing rooms are very badly designed and cramped with few amenities. Caddies not up to Malaysian standard and request RM50 tip per player and not per buggy. One caddy was on the buggy most of the time reading her hand-phone. I would not rush back
