Nicklaus renowned for his golf course designs has created one of the best yet here in Borneo Golf and Country Club a semi private club that has the complete set-up required for tournament golf. 

The clubhouse is large and more than sufficient for the needs of visiting golfers and club members alike. Facilities within the clubhouse include a golfer’s lounge where your every need is catered for, a well-equipped pro shop with a resident pro on hand to offer advice and a superb practice facility which includes a driving range and short game practice area. Swimming, tennis and fishing can also be enjoyed on the resort which is neighboured by a large hotel which is perfect for golfers wishing to base themselves outside of Kota Kinabalu. 

Built over 200 acres the course takes advantage of the natural lagoon which Nicklaus has cleverly integrated into his design, the abundant water, waste areas and large bunkers, a Nicklaus design trait, make for a visually dramatic layout. The rolling fairways are a joy to see and play with tight knit roots to ensure an almost certain good lie. The greens can be extremely fast, especially during a dry spell and are treacherous.

With its location close to the seafront the course invariably as some holes that play along the shoreline offering not only a challenge for the golfer but also stunning views out across the South China Sea. 

One of the challenges golfers will undoubtedly face when visiting The Borneo Golf and Country Club is the sea breezes. Nicklaus upon designing this courses ensured that the style closely followed that of the great Links courses of the United Kingdom and in doing insured that the wind would definitely become a huge player throughout the game. 

It is this ingenious design that allows golfers of all levels to enjoy this wonderful course to the maximum. 

A round here will not disappoint and it is absolutely no surprise that the course is gaining worldwide recognition as one of the best courses in Malaysia. It is a course that has the Nicklaus signature to it and it is definitely a course he can be proud of.

Nicklaus  renowned  for  his  golf  course  designs  has  created  one  of  the  best  yet  here  in  Borneo  Golf  and  Country  Club  a  semi  private  club  that  has  the  complete  set-up  required  for  tournament  golf. 

\n

The  clubhouse  is  large  and  more  than  sufficient  for  the  needs  of  visiting  golfers  and  club  members  alike.  Facilities  within  the  clubhouse  include  a  golfer’s  lounge  where  your  every  need  is  catered  for,  a  well-equipped  pro  shop  with  a  resident  pro  on  hand  to  offer  advice  and  a  superb  practice  facility  which  includes  a  driving  range  and  short  game  practice  area.  Swimming,  tennis  and  fishing  can  also  be  enjoyed  on  the  resort  which  is  neighboured  by  a  large  hotel  which  is  perfect  for  golfers  wishing  to  base  themselves  outside  of  Kota  Kinabalu. 

\n

Built  over  200  acres  the  course  takes  advantage  of  the  natural  lagoon  which  Nicklaus  has  cleverly  integrated  into  his  design,  the  abundant  water,  waste  areas  and  large  bunkers,  a  Nicklaus  design  trait,  make  for  a  visually  dramatic  layout.  The  rolling  fairways  are  a  joy  to  see  and  play  with  tight  knit  roots  to  ensure  an  almost  certain  good  lie.  The  greens  can  be  extremely  fast,  especially  during  a  dry  spell  and  are  treacherous.

\n

With  its  location  close  to  the  seafront  the  course  invariably  as  some  holes  that  play  along  the  shoreline  offering  not  only  a  challenge  for  the  golfer  but  also  stunning  views  out  across  the  South  China  Sea. 

\n

One  of  the  challenges  golfers  will  undoubtedly  face  when  visiting  The  Borneo  Golf  and  Country  Club  is  the  sea  breezes.  Nicklaus  upon  designing  this  courses  ensured  that  the  style  closely  followed  that  of  the  great  Links  courses  of  the  United  Kingdom  and  in  doing  insured  that  the  wind  would  definitely  become  a  huge  player  throughout  the  game. 

\n

It  is  this  ingenious  design  that  allows  golfers  of  all  levels  to  enjoy  this  wonderful  course  to  the  maximum.
