Gunung Raya Golf Resort

Holes 18 | Par 72 | Length 6337 m / 6930 y | Type Parkland | Architect Max Wexler

Gunung Raya Golf Resort in Langkawi is built in a beautiful valley surrounded by jungle with panoramic views over the surrounding countryside.  The fairways on the golf course are pretty forgiving but plenty of water on the back nine to wreck your card.

This is a very well-maintained course and should always be included if you intent to play golf in Langkawi.  This course has been deliberately designed to appeal to golfers of all standards and if you choose a tee box appropriate to your skill level then you should find enough excitement. The fairways are wide and will have you reaching for your driver even if you are not that accurate as there is no OB on this course and few hazards.

The tee box on the opening hole offers panoramic views over the course and the jungle and mountains in the background.  You drive into the valley and then it’s a slight dogleg as you play uphill towards the green.  This is followed by a long par-5 with a narrow landing area and a zigzag shaped fairway up to the green.  The 3rd is a medium length par-4 with a wide landing area providing you can avoid the water just in front of the tee and as you approach the green the hazard encroaches into the fairway on both sides providing a very narrow opening onto the green.  The 5th is a long par-3 measuring nearly 200 metres from the back tee with a ravine all the way from tee to green which is one of the largest on the course.  The 6th has a tree positioned right in the middle of the fairway which blocks what is already a very narrow landing area and very easy to get blocked by the trees for your approach.  The rest of this nine are fairly straight forward although the 9th which is rated as the most difficult needs to be navigated carefully.

There is more water and other obstacles on the back nine and they sometimes let the rough grow quite long so you need to mark your ball carefully to avoid losing a ball and after heavy rain the course does not drain as well as it should.

The back nine at Gunung Raya Golf Resort starts with a signature par-5 with elevated tee boxes offering great views over the course and especially to the mountain after which the course was named – it’s a slight dogleg but the green is quite open.  This is followed by a superb par-3 which plays 170 yards from the back tees with a water carry all the way to a green without too much protection so providing you can make good contact then this is a birdie opportunity. The 12th is  long par-4 with a water carry off the tee and a ditch running in front of the green so you need to be brave to get up in regulation.

A nice modern clubhouse with well-equipped pro-shop, excellent changing facilities and a nice bar and restaurant overlooking the course.

We loved the natural feeling to this course – a real “back to nature” experience with great views and some excellent and interesting holes and if you play midweek you will probably have the course all to yourself.

    AdditionalDescription:  {  html:  '

This  is  a  very  well-maintained  course  and  should  always  be  included  if  you  intent  to  play  golf  in  Langkawi.   This  course  has  been  deliberately  designed  to  appeal  to  golfers  of  all  standards  and  if  you  choose  a  tee  box  appropriate  to  your  skill  level  then  you  should  find  enough  excitement.  The  fairways  are  wide  and  will  have  you  reaching  for  your  driver  even  if  you  are  not  that  accurate  as  there  is  no  OB  on  this  course  and  few  hazards.

\n

The  tee  box  on  the  opening  hole  offers  panoramic  views  over  the  course  and  the  jungle  and  mountains  in  the  background.   You  drive  into  the  valley  and  then  it’s  a  slight  dogleg  as  you  play  uphill  towards  the  green.   This  is  followed  by  a  long  par-5  with  a  narrow  landing  area  and  a  zigzag  shaped  fairway  up  to  the  green.   The  3rd  is  a  medium  length  par-4  with  a  wide  landing  area  providing  you  can  avoid  the  water  just  in  front  of  the  tee  and  as  you  approach  the  green  the  hazard  encroaches  into  the  fairway  on  both  sides  providing  a  very  narrow  opening  onto  the  green.   The  5th  is  a  long  par-3  measuring  nearly  200  metres  from  the  back  tee  with  a  ravine  all  the  way  from  tee  to  green  which  is  one  of  the  largest  on  the  course.   The  6th  has  a  tree  positioned  right  in  the  middle  of  the  fairway  which  blocks  what  is  already  a  very  narrow  landing  area  and  very  easy  to  get  blocked  by  the  trees  for  your  approach.   The  rest  of  this  nine  are  fairly  straight  forward  although  the  9th  which  is  rated  as  the  most  difficult  needs  to  be  navigated  carefully.

\n

There  is  more  water  and  other  obstacles  on  the  back  nine  and  they  sometimes  let  the  rough  grow  quite  long  so  you  need  to  mark  your  ball  carefully  to  avoid  losing  a  ball  and  after  heavy  rain  the  course  does  not  drain  as  well  as  it  should.

\n

The  back  nine  at  Gunung  Raya  Golf  Resort  starts  with  a  signature  par-5  with  elevated  tee  boxes  offering  great  views  over  the  course  and  especially  to  the  mountain  after  which  the  course  was  named  –  it’s  a  slight  dogleg  but  the  green  is  quite  open.   This  is  followed  by  a  superb  par-3  which  plays  170  yards  from  the  back  tees  with  a  water  carry  all  the  way  to  a  green  without  too  much  protection  so  providing  you  can  make  good  contact  then  this  is  a  birdie  opportunity.  The  12th  is   long  par-4  with  a  water  carry  off  the  tee  and  a  ditch  running  in  front  of  the  green  so  you  need  to  be  brave  to  get  up  in  regulation.

\n

A  nice  modern  clubhouse  with  well-equipped  pro-shop,  excellent  changing  facilities  and  a  nice  bar  and  restaurant  overlooking  the  course.

\n

We  loved  the  natural  feeling  to  this  course  –  a  real  “back  to  nature”  experience  with  great  views  and  some  excellent  and  interesting  holes  and  if  you  play  midweek  you  will  probably  have  the  course  all  to  yourself.
