The best place in the Royal Yacht Club but you have to be a boatie to get in.
Most beaches and hotels have limited facilities; many private hirers have some facilities.
Shop around for prices. Sadly, there's a different price for foreigners so take at least 30% off the stated price and walk away if they don't reduce.
The Straits of Malacca are basically still water. It's only about 50km to Sumatra so there's no surf and there's a 25 metre low/high tide exposing all the rocks and sand bars and mud flats.
Equipment: No need to bring anything. There's plenty of private hirers.
Guoman Golf Resort
Playing to 2,276m the par-35, the short course is rather challenging with its hilly and stragetically placed hazard... This course is well maintained and has many species of flora and birds that serve to advance its natural beauty. There are also numerous rambutan, durian, mango, petai, ciku, starfruit and coconut trees all over the course.
The par-3 8th is Guoman’s signature hole. Its tees are just 20 metres above sea level, with the Malacca Straits in full-view. The carry is over water to a green that has a coconut tree on the right. It is certainly one of the most scenic holes.
Equipment: The weekday green fee - Monday to Friday - is RM30 for nine holes and RM40 for 18, while on weekends and Public Holidays it is RM50 and RM70 respectively.
The course is only opened to resort guests and not available to the public.
