It boasts of being home to 2 championship courses – the Melana and Pulai golf courses.
The Pulai Course was designed by Robert Trent Jones and its main feature is the stylish bunkering that is present all over the course. Played at 6819 yards from the tips, this course poses quite a challenge. The holes are placed on regular heaving and sparsely tree-lined landscape. The downward par 5 ninth has the biggest height change and back 9 has the best holes. The front 9 has a double green on hole 3 that is shared with hole 6 and 7, which makes it quite challenging. With water present, it is imperative to keep the ball dry at five holes on back nine. The par 3 thirteenth is the most significant with its water bordered island green lining up the tee boxes. The short par 4 sixteenth has bunkers all over the green from eighty yards. The ending comes with a lengthy, ascending hook shaped par 4 with water on its left side accompanied with heavy bunkering and heightened green.
The Melana Course is Pulai Springs Country Club is their second course. This par 72 course is built on a hilly terrain at 6582 yards, designed by Peter Dalkeith Scott. Its superb golf course was recognised by the Business Times of Singapore, and was selected the Best Johor Golf Course! The front 9 has some beautiful views of the natural forest and oil plantation landscape. The biggest elevation alterations are on the front 9 and the closing part of back 9. The greens are tiny and full of difficult slopes. The main hole is the 6th hole par 3 which plays across a forest is the concluding stretch of 4 holes. The par 5 fifteenth, rightly called ‘The Challenge’, begins easy but tapers tremendously towards the green leading to the water obstacles.
