The Royal Selangor Golf Club

The Royal Selangor Golf Club, established in 1893,  Has a long and illustrious history that is associated with the birth and dawn of golf in the South East Asia region.  The founding ground of golf and the premier golf club of Malaysia, the RSGC, as it is popularly known,  has played a most prominent role in the evolution of the game in this country and in making it a major recreational and sporting event here. Having played host to  many international golf tournaments, a hallmark of quality and par excellence is synonymous with this august Club.

Today, the RSGC is home to over 6000 Members comprising Royalty, Cabinet, Ministers,  foreign diplomats, corporate leaders, captains of industry, professionals and ordinary persons from different walks of life, who share a keen interest in golf and other sporting pursuits. The RSGC offers  two 18 holes championship courses and a short 9 holes option.  Home to the inaugural Malaysian Open, the historic Old Course at 6,742 yards and playing to a par-72, has been the venue for many international tournaments. The New Course at 6,605 yards, par-72 is another fine 18-holes with undulating greens and generous fairway.   While the 45 holes are accessible on foot , each hole offers a different play experience and challenges to test  one's golfing approach.   Multiple tees ensures that golfers of varying skill levels will enjoy their game.
