    the city skyline... from hole #1...

    Set on the peripheral boundary of Kuala Lumpur city centre, the club has a 9-hole course with a spectcular view of the KLumpur landmarks such as the Petronas Twin Towers, KLumpur Tower and other highrise buildings... Designed by Ng Ah Bey and several officers of the police force, the par-36 layout is hilly with water coming into play in a number of holes... The fairway is of cow grass with the First Nine playing to 3,067m from the blue tees... The Second Nine playing from the white tees is a tart shorter at 2,839m...

    The course is rather challenging with water coming into play in a number of holes... The most talk-about hole is the 615m par5 hole #6, which is reputed to be the longest hole amongst Southeast Asian courses...

    Equipment: The rather small and tired clubhouse has both male and lady changing rooms that need to be upgraded... There is an elevated golfer's terrace overlooking the starting and finishing holes... There is also a driving range for those who need to practice their golf swings... And next to the registration counter is a small but well stocked pro-shop...

    Kelab Golf Perkhidmatan Awam Malaysia (KGPA)

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    KGPA is a 27-hole course opened in play in 1989... The championship course is a classic par 72 golf course playing to 6,005m from the blue tees.. with the Hill Nine at 2,949m and the Lake Nine at 3,056m... The Hill Nine is rather hilly as the name suggested with lush fairways and verdent greens... while for the Lake Nine, water comes in play in many holes...

    The third Nine (named Forest) is shorter and plays to 2,446m, caters for intermediate and seniors golfers. The course is equally challenging and many regretted underestimating it.

    Equipment: The clubhouse is of Roman-architecture design... It is a majestic building housing the normal golfers terrance, male and lady changing rooms and a small pro-shop... It also have meeting rooms and banquet facilities which can cater for up to 400 pax... The swimming pools area is off the main clubhouse...
