A Famosa Golf Resort

Holes 18 | Par 72 | Length 6342 m / 6936 y | Type Parkland | Architect Ross Watson

Named after the 16th Portuguese fort of Malaka A´Famosa and set in 1300 acres of natural lush terrain the A´Famosa Golf Resort is located close to the Malaysian Capital City of Kuala Lumpur. 

Within the “entertainment” resort sits the 27-hole golf complex. The design by Ross Watson is exquisite and none of the holes on the golf course will disappoint you. The entire complex flows beautifully with gentle undulations and mature trees which blend seamlessly with the water hazards and rocky outcrops.

The Palm course would be considered as the most picturesque of the 3 loops with designer Watson creating a visual spectacle with the use of trees flanking the fairways and the strategically placed clustering of pot bunkers that partner the more aesthetic bunkering around the greens, which are often elevated.

To start The Palm course the golfer is faced with probably the toughest challenge of the loop, with the signature hole unusually being the first. A par four of 384 meters from the blue tees the golfer is required to be warmed up before standing on this island green which will require a long carry to reach the fairway. The second shot is no easier with an approach over yet more water to a green that is guarded by several green side bunkers.

The 9th is also a good hole, a 394 metre par four which requires accuracy from the tee to avoid the fairway bunkers and leave the best angle into the green which is flanked by water left and bunkers.

The second course that would generally make up the 18 holes for tournament play is The Rockies. As the name suggests the course is sprinkled with various rocky outcrops which provide a challenge to the golfer as well as a distinctive feature for the course which is otherwise relatively flat.

Of the holes on the Rocky Course the 8th is a good par four, measuring 366 metres from the blue tees the hole requires a drive that finds the undulating fairway to leave an approach to the green which is protected with water.

Of the 3 loops the final is The Crocodile Course is somewhat less challenging than the other two loops of 9 although water hazards come into play on many holes. For longer hitters looking to take advantage of the more generous fairways the par 5 fifth is the perfect chance to get home in two. The hole runs parallel to the North-South motorway and has a backdrop of splendid high rises. At 502 metres the real trouble comes if you over-club your approach which will find the water.

The course takes its name from the crocodile pit which you can find nestled behind the 7th green, which is also the signature hole of the course. At 358 metres the hole requires a tee shot that avoids the water left and a second shot over the water to the green, a par is a good score here.

A´Famosa is typically a resort and has many features that are directed to families that want the complete holiday experience with many gimmicks that serious golfers may find annoying, but that does not detract from some of the best golf holes in Malaysia, the courses are some of the best you will find so you should come and give the A´Famosa resort a try.
