A’Famosa Golf & Country Club : 27-hole resort course located between Kuala Lumpur and Malacca
A’Famosa Golf Resort is a Malaysia golf course with full resort facilities. The golf resort is located 1 hour south of Kuala Lumpur and is within easy reach of Kuala Lumpur and Malacca. The 27-hole parkland style golf course comprises three very good nine-hole loops, with a unique Ross Watson design. A’Famosa hosted the Malaysian Amateur Open Golf Championship in 2011.
Each of the three nines is uniquely crafted to take advantage of the terrain’s natural contours. Set in an environment of lakes, tropical flora and beautiful landscaping, golfers are faced with a delightful yet challenging layout. A’Famosa Golf Resort consists of the Rockies, Crocodile and Palm nines.
The Rockies nine is sprinkled with attractive boulder outcrops. As expected there are plenty of coconut palms on the Palm course, and the Crocodile nine has its very own crocodile home. With constant but gentle elevation changes, high-quality bunkering and strategically contoured fairways, this is an enjoyable yet challenging Malacca golf course. A’Famosa is usually well maintained and in good condition for Malaysia golf enthusiasts.
The Palm golf course is arguably the most attractive and scenic nine, with a wonderful array of impressively designed holes. The tree-lined earth mounding that flank the fairways is frequently home to clusters of pot bunkers, complementing the bunkering around the often elevated greens of this wonderful Malaysia golf course.
The Rockies and Crocodile nines share the same impressive design characteristics, although with less water in play on the Rockies course. There is a slightly more open aspect on some of the Crocodile holes, from which you can inspect several of the other resort activities along the way. Just beyond the island green of the par-4 7th, is the pit where a couple of hungry crocs hang-out. The Rockies and Palm combination is generally used for tournaments played at A’Famosa Resort in Malaysia.
This Malaysia golf course clubhouse has spacious changing room, a business center, pro shop and excellent food and beverage outlets like Golfer’s Terrace and Bonus Café. The Clubhouse also boasts a well-stocked pro shop.
