Carving its way through an oil palm estate Kota Permai Golf Club in Kuala Lumpur is a top-class golf course designed by Ross Watson which is always in excellent condition and has won numerous awards. Very enjoyable challenge for golfers of all standard.
After a relatively easy start things get serious on the 2nd which is a different proposition with water all down the left, a pot bunker lurking in the middle of the fairway and water in front of the green. Fortunately the greens are exceptionally well maintained but are some of the quickest in the area. Water and bunkers come into play on the par-3, 6th which also the longest on the course. The 9th is one of the most difficult and your uphill tee shot needs to negotiate pot bunkers on the left and trees on the right with more bunkers lying in wait protecting the undulating green.
The 13th is the pick of the holes on the back nine and you tee off into a valley fairway and then you climb up the other side of the valley as you approach the green. Two very deep bunkers guard the right side of the green and a false front penalises those that under-club. The green itself slopes front back to front so you need to keep below the hole with your approach. The next hole, the par-3, 14th is supposed to be the easiest on the course but you need to take care as there are five bunkers protecting the green. The 17th is another tricky par-3 which can also wreck your round and you have to carry all the way to the green to avoid the trouble. A great finishing hole with fairway bunkers, trees along the left and water in play on the right plus a tricky approach to a three-tiered green.
Exceptional range of services and you can enjoy a great meal and a cold beer in the Golfers Terrace overlooking the golf course.
Tee Time Bookings at Kota Permai Golf Club
Kota Permai Golf Club in Kuala Lumpur is a popular course and requires a minimum of three players during restricted tee times during weekdays and Sunday afternoons, but if you have the required number, you shouldn't miss playing this excellent course.
Played here recently and the course was in great shape except for as few buggy tracks on the fairway. Apart from that the clubhouse facilities were pretty good. The course is a challenge but most people should cope with it.
Excellent golf course with perfectly manicured fairways and tee boxes, and fast greens. Caddies were compulsory and were excellent. All holes were very different and some were very interesting and challenging. Takes around thirty minutes for the town.
