What makes A’Famosa golf course attractive? This 27-hole golf course was ingeniously designed by an Australian architect, Ross C. Watson. The layout of the golf course taps on the natural topography of the land. Hence, what makes it challenging at A’Famosa golf course are the lakes, boulders, planned fairways, gentle elevation alterations, high standard bunkering and vegetation surrounding the course.
Opened in 1997, this scenic course has three nine-hole loops, named The Rockies, Crocodile and Palm. There are huge boulders in the Rockies, plenty of coconut palms at Palm and there are actual crocodiles residing in Crocodile loop. Rockies and Crocodile loops have similar features, but Rockies have lesser water elements. The holes in Crocodile loop are slightly more open and you can actually see crocodiles hanging out on par 4 – 7! The Palm loop is certainly the most beautiful of the nine–hole course trio. It has an amazing range of striking holes and groups of pot bunkers that match the bunkering around the plush elevated greens.
