Ponderosa Golf & Country Club – One of the popular golf course in Johor Bahru
Located in the town area of Taman Molek, Ponderosa Golf & Country Club is a fifteen-minute drive from Johor Bahru city center. Enjoy the best golfing experience at Ponderosa Golf & Country Club, where beautiful greenery landscape surrounds you.
This popular golf course in JB provides a natural golfing environment with a mix of natural topography and tropical flora. It was initially designed by Max Wesler, and was re-designed by architect Ronald Fream in 1996. Measuring 6467 meters, Ponderosa Golf & Country Club course has a number of water and sand obstacles and challenging rolling greens, making it a difficult course, even for the pros. The lengthy par three, gusty winds and the unlevelled fairways on the mounds, all add to the level of difficulty of the golf course.
The seventh hole is Ponderosa’s signature hole, which is a par 3 and 168 metres long. Players need to get their shot across a huge pond, but with trees acting as obstacles, it makes it a challenging shot.
The par 5 – 9th hole, measuring 543 metres, is the longest and definitely the toughest hole in Ponderosa Golf & Country Club. The rows of bulky old trees, fairway hills and hollows, narrow approach to the green, scary greenside bunkers, a high fairway bunker and uneven surfaces, all adds to the challenge of hole 9, making this the most difficult level on the golf course.
The par 4 – hole 16, you would agree is the most interesting hole on the back nine. The green is well outlined and overlooked by sand hollows on either side of the course, with a beautiful stream in the backdrop. The hole features a large pond along with waterfall running from tee to the green. The fairway is quite narrow and if you are a big hitter, you may want to try to hit hard and cross the pond, to shorten the distance to the green.
Ponderosa Golf & Country Club also provides facilities, which include tennis courts, a driving range, an Olympic size pool, a pro shop and a fine Chinese restaurant for its golfers to enjoy the best golfing experience.
