Ideally located Nilai Springs Golf and Country Club is just 15 minutes from Kuala Lumpur International Airport and 30 minutes from downtown Kuala Lumpur.
A superb championship layout, with any three of the 9-hole loops combining perfectly to create a true championship test of golf.
As you stand on every single tee you are faced with a plethora of danger, that will test the very best golfers game, skill and nerve.
The Mango, Island and Pines loops are designed in a very similar manner that allows for a seamless connection of any of the combinations.
It is testament to the quality of the design that each nine boasts a true standout hole, and yet not a single bad hole will be found.
On the Island course, the stand out and most challenging hole is the 8th. A series of perfectly placed hazards and the need for precise shots and sound strategy make this an unforgettable.
The Mango´s best is left until the last but it is worth the wait, unless you play it badly!
On the Pines we come across the stand out hole, early on, the fourth, for many visitors this could easily be the best hole of the 27, but it truly is difficult to single out a single hole as the best.
Throughout, the narrow fairways test your accuracy from the tee, and the many bunkers only increase the need to keep the ball on the short grass.
Facilities are outstanding with good practice facilities, including a driving range and a large putting and chipping green.
The clubhouse offers everything the visiting golfer could ever need.
Caddies are available and as with many courses, they are priceless and well worth contracting, not only for their local knowledge but also their ability to spot a lost ball.
Nilai Springs is a course not to be missed, especially for low handicap golfers, beginners will delight in the beauty and intricacies of design, but will likely walk away feeling beat up.
