Penang Golf Resort

Holes 36 | Par 72 | Length 6324 m / 6916 y | Type Parkland | Architect Graham Marsh

Penang Golf Resort is a 36-hole layout offering two very similar courses around 60 minutes’ drive from Penang Island.  The mounding, water and pot bunkers will provide an enjoyable challenge for golfers of all levels.   Course maintenance is usually good but can get waterlogged after heavy rain.

On the site of a former palm oil plantation lie the twin courses of the Penang Golf Resort. The East course is largely preferred as host of prestigious tournaments such as the Malaysian Amateur Open, there is really very little to choose between them and you might find the excellent West course less crowded than it's slightly more favoured twin.   The naturally pancake-flat terrain has been enlivened by the clever use of earth-mounding to create enough contours and definition to keep the course interesting. The stylishly designed bunkers combine with a smattering of water hazards to create plenty of challenges for golfers of all abilities.

The fairways are pretty generous, and the open feel and light rough mean you aren't too usually heavily punished by wayward drives. It may not be one for the purists, but if you're anything like us it's nice to have the chance to recover after a bad shot.   It's on the approaches where you need to take extra special care, especially towards the end of each nine where water starts to become more prevalent; in general, the water isn't too threatening though, lurking behind greens rather than in front of them, so you'll need to be unlucky or simply holding the wrong club to end up in the drink most of the time. The pot bunkers are more troublesome, with many of the greens heavily guarded. Like its sister course, the greens are more sloping than the fairways, and an ongoing maintenance programme that keeps the course is good shape.   

The pick of the holes on the West Course at Penang Golf Resort include the very long par-5, 5th which is also rated as the most difficult hole on this course and the 8th which is a short par-3 but with water all along the left hand side this is an intimidating tee shot.  ; The 12th is a long par-4 which requires two good strikes to get up in regulation the 14th which is a short par-3 and rated as the easiest hole offers a great birdie opportunity. The 18th is a long and tricky par-5 with a daunting approach to a green with water protecting one side.   If you decide to play the East Course then you will not encounter so much water and it’s not really a factor on any of the holes unless you are very wild.

Many of the holes are pretty similar and on the front 9 the 5th, a long par 5 is most likely to wreck your card.  ; The par threes are all very short except for the 17th so all offer opportunities to regain some shots from the course.

Penang Golf Resort is an enjoyably challenging course and the unforgiving nature of the courses make for an enjoyable day out.

    AdditionalDescription:  {  html:  'On  the  site  of  a  former  palm  oil  plantation  lie  the  twin  courses  of  the  Penang  Golf  Resort.  The  East  course  is  largely  preferred  as  host  of  prestigious  tournaments  such  as  the  Malaysian  Amateur  Open,  there  is  really  very  little  to  choose  between  them  and  you  might  find  the  excellent  West  course  less  crowded  than  it\'s  slightly  more  favoured  twin.    The  naturally  pancake-flat  terrain  has  been  enlivened  by  the  clever  use  of  earth-mounding  to  create  enough  contours  and  definition  to  keep  the  course  interesting.  The  stylishly  designed  bunkers  combine  with  a  smattering  of  water  hazards  to  create  plenty  of  challenges  for  golfers  of  all  abilities.

\nThe  fairways  are  pretty  generous,  and  the  open  feel  and  light  rough  mean  you  aren\'t  too  usually  heavily  punished  by  wayward  drives.  It  may  not  be  one  for  the  purists,  but  if  you\'re  anything  like  us  it\'s  nice  to  have  the  chance  to  recover  after  a  bad  shot.    It\'s  on  the  approaches  where  you  need  to  take  extra  special  care,  especially  towards  the  end  of  each  nine  where  water  starts  to  become  more  prevalent;  in  general,  the  water  isn\'t  too  threatening  though,  lurking  behind  greens  rather  than  in  front  of  them,  so  you\'ll  need  to  be  unlucky  or  simply  holding  the  wrong  club  to  end  up  in  the  drink  most  of  the  time.  The  pot  bunkers  are  more  troublesome,  with  many  of  the  greens  heavily  guarded.  Like  its  sister  course,  the  greens  are  more  sloping  than  the  fairways,  and  an  ongoing  maintenance  programme  that  keeps  the  course  is  good  shape.    

\nThe  pick  of  the  holes  on  the  West  Course  at  Penang  Golf  Resort  include  the  very  long  par-5,  5th  which  is  also  rated  as  the  most  difficult  hole  on  this  course  and  the  8th  which  is  a  short  par-3  but  with  water  all  along  the  left  hand  side  this  is  an  intimidating  tee  shot.   ;  The  12th  is  a  long  par-4  which  requires  two  good  strikes  to  get  up  in  regulation  the  14th  which  is  a  short  par-3  and  rated  as  the  easiest  hole  offers  a  great  birdie  opportunity.  The  18th  is  a  long  and  tricky  par-5  with  a  daunting  approach  to  a  green  with  water  protecting  one  side.    If  you  decide  to  play  the  East  Course  then  you  will  not  encounter  so  much  water  and  it’s  not  really  a  factor  on  any  of  the  holes  unless  you  are  very  wild.

\nMany  of  the  holes  are  pretty  similar  and  on  the  front  9  the  5th,  a  long  par  5  is  most  likely  to  wreck  your  card.   ;  The  par  threes  are  all  very  short  except  for  the  17th  so  all  offer  opportunities  to  regain  some  shots  from  the  course.

\nPenang  Golf  Resort  is  an  enjoyably  challenging  course  and  the  unforgiving  nature  of  the  courses  make  for  an  enjoyable  day  out.
