Reasons why Malaysia should be your next golfing destination – Exploring Malaysia differently…

For many of you reading this article, it will be a question as to why Malaysia has been named as a golfing destination. Yes, the Maldives is perfect for shopping, sight-seeing, and many other things but it is also awesome for a golfing holiday. Here are the main reasons for this.


Availability of perfect Golf Courses

Malaysia is a tropical destination that owns around 200 golf courses that are even internationally recognized. The newest is the Els Club in Desaru Coast which is managed by Troon Golf and this is known as one of the best ones in the region- with 45 amazing golf holes. The Palm Garden Golf Club, the Royal Selangor Golf Club, and the TPC Kuala Lumpur are just some of the other top-notch golf courses in Malaysia that are ideal for you during your family or official tours.


Great value for money

What you'll love the most about golfing in Malaysia is the value of the money that you spend. As mentioned above, most of the Malaysian gold courses follow international standards, but even they offer reasonable rates for visitors. If you are thinking of a rough estimate of the cost, it should approximately be around 60-100 USD for a good round of golf, and most of the time, this rate is inclusive of some other value-added services too.


Highly competitive golf tournaments

When the country has several golf courses that are just perfect, why shouldn't it be hosting international golf tournaments? The CIMB Classic (a million-dollar tournament) is a famous one that is held at TPC Kuala Lumpur and many big names in golf take part in this tournament. In the year 1999, Malaysia hosted the Golf World Cup and in addition to these, various other international games have happened at Malaysian golf courses in different years.


Awesome accommodation options

Your golfing holiday can be made even more memorable if you are wise enough to choose a great hotel for your time in Malaysia. Beach resorts in Malaysia the likes of Anantara Desaru Coast Resort & Villas are ideal for your vacations, and as golfing spots such as the Els Club is located so close to these, you may engage in your favourite sport whenever you want without any issue. Even if you are on a business tour with your office mates, you can book one of these hotels and then spend a great golf session right after your business meetings or conferences.


Other attractions in Malaysia

If you think of any other activities to engage in when you are holidaying in Malaysia, there's quite a lot! For a different vibe, you may travel to any of the islands of Tioman, Penang, Langkawi, or Layang Layang, or if getting closer to Nature is what you prefer the most, you may explore the rainforests or the mountains that the country has. You can also find many beaches, National Parks, and tea plantations in the country and you can explore any of them to enjoy the best holiday.
