Forest City Golf Resort, Legacy Course Description:
(Nicklaus design with excellent conditioning and caddies)

Forest City Golf Resort, Legacy Course opened in 2018 located 25 minutes from the Johor city center. The course is also reachable in less than 1 hour from Singapore and set among a large complex of four reclaimed islands in the straits between Singapore and Malaysia.

The Legacy Course is the first course of the Forest City Golf Resort (FCGR). The FCGR itself is part and parcel of a billion-dollar real estate project set on a 30-square-kilometer plot of land that overlooks the straits between Southern Malaysia and Singapore.

Located on low-lying land of the estuary of the Pulai River, the mostly Mangrove forest surrounded course protection against possible tidal flooding consists of 2.5 million cubic meters of dredged ocean sand forms. This cap forms the basis for the desert-like golf course.

The usual Cacti at desert golf courses were substituted with hundreds of palm trees, giving the Legacy Course a tropical feel. The Nicklaus design also makes use of Paspalum Platinum through fairways and greens and ensures excellent year-round playing conditions as its salt-tolerant and grows well in high humidity. Jack Nicklaus Jr., and his famous father, Jack Nicklaus Sr. both, had hands in the Forest City Golf Resort layout. There are many signature waste areas around the 18 hole course, so even offline drives can be played without worrying about out-of-bounds.

The 9th and 18th greens play around a shared hill, and the golf course has beautiful river views from most holes. From a player’s standpoint, the golf course is unique. Although the terrains are challenging, the golf course always keeps the amateur golfer in mind, as well as low handicappers and professional golfers.

Golf carts are allowed on fairways to help disabled golfers, speed up play, and enhance the course playability. Female caddies are standard, which is a big plus in Malaysia.

The massive 5-star Forest City Golf Hotel located in the middle of the property serves as the clubhouse. A grass turf driving range is available to golfers before and after their rounds.  The 21-bay full-length driving range has an open thatched roof structure fronted by a large short-game and chipping- and putting practice area. Facilities and service and the on-site golf resort match the 5-star standard.
