Sabah Golf Country Club

Holes 18 | Par 72 | Length 6335 m / 6928 y | Type Parkland | Architect Robert Muir Graves and remodelled by Nelson & Haworth

Opened in 1976, the Sabah Golf and Country Club is the oldest in the area. The club enjoys wonderful facilities for both the golfer and non-golfer alike with a gym, swimming pool and tennis to name a few of the activities away from the golf course.

The clubhouse offers a large open air terrace for those wishing for a light meal or snack before or after their round, a large restaurant and a further bar located close to the pro shop offering views of the 1st and 9th holes.

At 6335 metres this championship course is not one of the longest you will come across but it offers a wonderful challenge and the maturity of the golf course is endearing.

Designed by Robert Muir Graves it has been acknowledged as one of the most testing layouts in South East Asia. In 2003 the course was remodelled by Nelson & Haworth after the course was in decline for a number of years. The major changes undertaken were the new placement of the ninth green, from its hillside location to a more dramatic lakeside setting. Other tasks included drainage improvement, the flattening of some of the heavily contoured fairways and the clearing of some non-native trees that were deemed to detract from the natural splendour of the course.

The course is generally in good condition and visitors are more than welcome to play here, even though the membership base is large at around 2,500 members.

It is a course you really should try if you are in the region with rolling, undulating fairways that are interlaced with bunker and large water hazards that create strong features to be contended with.

The second hole is a 525-yard par five, from the back tees and offers the longer hitters the chance to get home in two, if they are brave enough to keep the ball tight to the water than runs the length of the hole on the left. The second shot must be played to the green avoiding overhanging branches and the bunker that make the second that little bit trickier.

The par three 5th is a great target par three, measuring 161 yards the hole calls for the correct club to be selected. Anything short will find one of the four bunkers that sweep around the front of the green, anything long will find the marshland at the bottom of a steep slope.

The newly remodelled ninth provides a wonderful dilema, take driver and leave just a chip to this green that sticks out into the lake. Or lay back with a long iron to leave a straightforward pitch shot into the green. Shot placement from the tee is the key to getting a good score on this hole as the fairway is undulating.

The 17th is another cracking par three to a green that is surrounded by water, front, right and rear and with a bunker protecting the left. At 165 yards it is not long but add in the wind which can swirl and change the entire perspective of the golfer you have a fantastic par three.

    AdditionalDescription:  {  html:  'Designed  by  Robert  Muir  Graves  it  has  been  acknowledged  as  one  of  the  most  testing  layouts  in  South  East  Asia.  In  2003  the  course  was  remodelled  by  Nelson  &  Haworth  after  the  course  was  in  decline  for  a  number  of  years.  The  major  changes  undertaken  were  the  new  placement  of  the  ninth  green,  from  its  hillside  location  to  a  more  dramatic  lakeside  setting.  Other  tasks  included  drainage  improvement,  the  flattening  of  some  of  the  heavily  contoured  fairways  and  the  clearing  of  some  non-native  trees  that  were  deemed  to  detract  from  the  natural  splendour  of  the  course.

\nThe  course  is  generally  in  good  condition  and  visitors  are  more  than  welcome  to  play  here,  even  though  the  membership  base  is  large  at  around  2,500  members.

\nIt  is  a  course  you  really  should  try  if  you  are  in  the  region  with  rolling,  undulating  fairways  that  are  interlaced  with  bunker  and  large  water  hazards  that  create  strong  features  to  be  contended  with.

\nThe  second  hole  is  a  525-yard  par  five,  from  the  back  tees  and  offers  the  longer  hitters  the  chance  to  get  home  in  two,  if  they  are  brave  enough  to  keep  the  ball  tight  to  the  water  than  runs  the  length  of  the  hole  on  the  left.  The  second  shot  must  be  played  to  the  green  avoiding  overhanging  branches  and  the  bunker  that  make  the  second  that  little  bit  trickier.

\nThe  par  three  5th  is  a  great  target  par  three,  measuring  161  yards  the  hole  calls  for  the  correct  club  to  be  selected.  Anything  short  will  find  one  of  the  four  bunkers  that  sweep  around  the  front  of  the  green,  anything  long  will  find  the  marshland  at  the  bottom  of  a  steep  slope.

\nThe  newly  remodelled  ninth  provides  a  wonderful  dilema,  take  driver  and  leave  just  a  chip  to  this  green  that  sticks  out  into  the  lake.  Or  lay  back  with  a  long  iron  to  leave  a  straightforward  pitch  shot  into  the  green.  Shot  placement  from  the  tee  is  the  key  to  getting  a  good  score  on  this  hole  as  the  fairway  is  undulating.

\n

The  17th  is  another  cracking  par  three  to  a  green  that  is  surrounded  by  water,  front,  right  and  rear  and  with  a  bunker  protecting  the  left.  At  165  yards  it  is  not  long  but  add  in  the  wind  which  can  swirl  and  change  the  entire  perspective  of  the  golfer  you  have  a  fantastic  par  three.
