Poresia Golf Club & Resort Description:
(classic Pete Dye designed resort course)

The name "Poresia" is a combination of the "Pore" of Singapore and "Sia" of Malaysia, and it symbolizes the link between the two countries and the cooperation of those who brought the resort into existence. Poresia Country Club is the nearest Johor Bahru country club to Singapore. The Johor golf course is located 15 minutes from the Tuas checkpoint and is set on 1,700 acres of a greater golf resort complex.

The environs of Poresia Country Club are lush and show the rich in the natural beauty of Malaysia. Look for hibiscus flowers, oil palms, and tropical birds across the course. The design of the golf courses was planned by Pete Dye and suits both golf professionals and amateurs alike. Four interchangeable nine-hole loops - Hibiscus, Orchid, Sakura and Bougainvillea - make-up the 36 championship holes laid out in this former palm oil plantation.

The Orchid course is arguably the best of the four; challenging from start to finish, but likely to be tough-going for high-handicappers. As with the Sakura, the terrain is constantly undulating and lightly palm-tree lined. The generally good-width fairways are sometimes flanked by large bunkers built from railway sleepers: a Pete Dye signature. Beyond the first-cut of the fairway, deep rough awaits.

Maintenance standards are generally good at Poresia, especially so around the large, gently contoured greens and their many run-off areas. The 13th (Orchid) is played from the highest point on the Poresia domain, a wonderfully elevated tee-box providing an excellent view of the surrounding plantation and the long downhill par-4. The Sakura course becomes a little tighter in places and less undulating than the Orchid, especially through its middle section. A meandering creek ensures plenty of water hazards lie in wait in Sakura's middle section. A few holes have creeks crossing the fairways twice, setting up some excellent risk-reward opportunities for longer hitters. Although Orchid / Hibiscus are the strongest combination the Orchid / Sakura will provide low and mid-handicappers with an excellent and testing outing.

Poresia Country Club is a full service golfing facility. The large clubhouse has a local restaurant that serves up good Malaysian food at fair prices for those wanting to savor some of Malaysia’s goodies after their round.
