Bangi Golf Resort in Kuala Lumpur is one of the closest golf courses to the city close to the new townships of Putrajaya and Cyberjay. It is a 27-hole course with the three nines names as Kajang, Putrajaya and Bangi. One of the shortest and easiest courses in Kuala Lumpur so everyone will enjoy playing here and should score well. There is a choice of five different tee boxes which is slightly confusing and most people would normally head for the Blue tees but here they actually equate to the normal white tees so better golfers will probably want to take on this courses from the Black tees.
If you get a choice we suggest you play the Kajang & Putrajaya courses as they are more scenic – the other course plays just as well it’s just not as pleasing on the eye.
Although this is an easier golf courses there is plenty of water to distract you and nowhere is this more evident than on the 7th which is the signature hole. A par-4, it demands a testing carry over water to reach the putting surface. Plenty of other hazards lurk on this course in the shape of well-placed fairways bunkers and several bordering most fairways.
There are some real fun holes here – especially the first par-5 which is a sharp dogleg and offers the chance to drive over the dogleg to a wedge distance from the green and the chance of an eagle. The other two par-5’s also offer a great birdie chance – even for moderate golfers. The other two nines offer a more traditional but no less enjoyable challenge and it’s the par-4, 13th that you will remember as your discuss your round over a beer. It’s a 250 metre carry if you go straight at the green or you can opt for the safer route and skirt the water hazard.
Don’t expect the course to be in pristine condition but this is a very conveniently located course which is fun to play for golfers of all standards and that’s what golf is all about.
