The Johor Golf Resort occupies 800 acres of land along the water on Straits of Johor and next to Pasir Gudang new town. It takes 30 minutes to reach from either the Singapore-Johor causeway or Johor Bahru itself. Tanjong Puteri Golf Resort developed in 1990 has three international standard golf courses, Plantation Course, Village Course, and Straits Course.
The three courses at Tanjong Puteri offer good challenge for visiting golfers. Each course plays through rolling hills of oil palm plantations. Designed by Max Wexler and Akira Mamiya, the courses blend with natural forests, mangroves and waterways and are well-landscaped and maintained. The undulating fairways turfed with Zoysia Matrella and greens of Bermuda Tifdwarf are well-maintained. Each track is similar in terms of design and layout.
The Plantation Course opened for play in November 1992. The area was once an oil palm plantation with villages to house workers who also developed fruit orchards and coconut groves. Original cultivated parts of these plantations and orchards are incorporated in the present landscape, as evident in the large number of oil palm fringing the fairways, as well as fruit trees along Holes 4, 6, 7, 14, 15 and 17 where durian, mango, jack fruit, rambutan trees and coconut palms are preserved. The Plantation Course plays to a length of 6,454 meters.
The Village Course began operation in August 1994. The area originally was part of the oil palm estate with kampongs (villages) dotting the area, thus its name. These kampongs can be seen at the fringes of holes 6, 11 & 12 with one village dating back to the 17th century. Thirteen out of the eighteen holes of the Village Course have water bordering their fairways or greens. With a blend of hills, valleys and lakes, the Village course’s 18-holes play to a length of 6,399 meters.
The Straits Course follows closely to the coastline of the Straits of Johor. This 6,185 meter layout was the third addition to the Tanjong Puteri Golf Resort. Many of the holes have the mangrove swamps as their main backdrop. For example, at the 2nd hole, high tides can bring swamp water into play. The 3rd tee box overlooks a small river that meanders through the mangroves before discharging its water into the larger Straits of Johor. The Straits Course is very challenging as golfers have to cope not only with swamp land, but also with undulating terrain, rocky outcrops, and strong prevailing sea breezes.
Facilities at Tanjong Puteri Golf Resort include a 52-bay driving range, practice green, large classical clubhouse, and 4 restaurants – with the Chinese Restaurant being the best of the bunch. Golf carts are mandatory on all three golf courses. However caddies are not available and the service on-the-course is only average. The on-site resort should be given a miss by Johor golf visitors as it caters more to locals and is quite far away from the main golf tourist areas. Overall, a round at Tanjong Puteri Golf Resort is still a good to include as part of any Johor golf holiday.
You can also combine this golf course with other courses for your next golf holiday.
