Course Reviews

Course Name Royal Selangor Golf Club
Location Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Comments from Ravi Shankar, Finchley, Greater London, UK
Possibly one of the first courses built in Malaysia. The RSGC has two 18 hole Championship courses (the Old Course and the New Course) and one 9 hole course consisting solely of par 3s. Of the Championship courses, the old course is the longer and more te sting, particularly the 17th, which is a par 3 over water to an elevated green surrounded by an army of Bunkers. There are refreshment huts at strategic points on the course and the club offers caddies. The RSGC is flat, with a high water table, so later al water can be a problem after rain, although drainage has improved significantly over recent years. Whilst the RSGC does not have Burmuda grass on the fairways, which many recently built courses in Malaysia are opting for, the club retains an old charm to it. The trees are mature, various and beautiful and there is abundant wildlife (a troupe of monkey's live in trees on the 11th hole of the old course and can often be seen gamboling on the fairway). The club facilities are second to none, they include lawn and clay court tennis, squash, three swimming pools, two formal restaurants and two informal eating areas. There is a terrace from which you can watch golfers putting out on the 18th of the Old whilst drinking your anchor beer and eating your ikan bilis (a type of whiting) or Welsh rarebit. Magic.
