Golf Courses in Johor – The Best Places for your Golfing Needs

Johor is the capital city of the Malaysian state of Johor Bahru, and it is a sprawling metropolis with a wealth of experiences to offer, especially if you're an avid golfer.


Starhill Golf and Country Club JB

If you're looking for a very exclusive and luxurious sort of golfing retreat then this is one of the most ideal choices the city has to offer. Starhill is renowned for offering world-class golfing experiences and has been in operation since 1991, as one of the most popular golf clubs in the region. The club has a variety of courses to offer, with comprehensive ones such as the Bukit Course which will require a golf-cart to traverse, as well as the more casual Bintang Course. There's also a range of facilities available at the club house and Starhill is known to always have room for new members. Starhill is also particularly popular with Japanese golfers.


Legends Golf & Country Resort

The name of this golf resort is actually quite appropriate, since it was designed by two of the biggest names in the history of the sport. Before the likes of Tiger Woods appeared, the big three of golf were Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Gary Player. Two of these legends, Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer, were involved in the design and construction of this golfing resort, so the courses are truly exceptional. In addition to the courses being exceptionally challenging, they are also designed to be visually stunning, making use of the natural splendour of the setting. The clubhouse is massive, boasting 110,000 square-feet of space, with wide-open terraces, luxurious saunas, and a fine-dining Chinese restaurant. Club-members can even have private functions at the clubhouse within its spacious ballroom.


IOI Palm Villa Golf & Country Club

There are 27 courses offered by this establishment, and has a selection for both experts and amateurs alike. It is also situated at a very convenient location which is close by to the airport as well as many places of accommodation such as Somerset Medini Iskandar Puteri. One of the most beautiful aspects of the course are the palm trees which line the fairway, and this gives the course a beautiful tropical ambience throughout the entire year. There's also a world-class swimming pool as well as a reputed spa with wellness experts.


Horizon Hills Golf Club and Country Resort

This is one of the newer courses to appear and one where no expense was spared regarding the cost of its design and construction. The course was built at a cost of ten million dollars based on a design by the famous Australian golf course architect Ross Watson. The magnificent clubhouse, with a range of five-star amenities, was designed by Argentinean architect Ernesto Bedmar. This club was a venue on the Asia Golf Tour, so if you're on vacation nearby, at an alternative to hotel in Iskandar Puteri for example, be sure to keep an eye out for this golf club if you're a fan of either playing the sport or events associated with it.
