The Saujana Golf & Country Club
The Saujana Golf & Country Club Kuala Lumpur, strategically located 30 minutes from Kuala Lumpur city centre, 35 minutes from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and only 5 minutes from the Subang Skypark, combines comfort and adventure amidst 160 hectares of lush tropical gardens. Taking its name from an old Malay expression ‘sejauh di sana’ meaning – as far as the eye can see –the 210-room retreat adjoined to two 18-hole championship golf courses of Saujana Golf & Country Club is an idyllic haven for business and pleasure.
Saujana Golf & Country Club offers two championship golf courses, the ‘Palm Course’ and the ‘Bunga Raya Course’.
Saujana's Bunga Raya Course cut out of thick jungle, where monkeys and flying squirrels cause a ruckus off the fairway, and there is a great deal of elevated tees and greens that makes for a lot of variety in shot-making. It’s also in fine condition and you won’t find better service anywhere, with caddies (both men and women), forecaddies in the fairways, GPS, locker room attendants, a great restaurant with both eastern and western food (like a delicious club sandwich with egg on it) and other staff who seem to just hang around in case you need anything.
The Palm Course at Saujana is so tough it's been nicknamed "The Cobra" and its fangs have tested many of the world's top golfers as it's hosted six of the last 13 Malaysian Opens, a co-sanctioned European/Asian Tour event. Past winners include former world number one Vijay Singh. With jungle lining many fairways, and water and sand hazards in abundance, just getting to the green is a struggle. But that's when the real problems start because The Cobra's super fast, heavily undulating putting surfaces are probably the hardest to putt on in the world, including those at Augusta. Only great putters win at Saujana.
