Starhill Golf & Country Club – Popular golfing spot in Johor
Johor Bahru has always been a popular holiday destination, and one of the reasons why tourists love to visit Johor is for its international standard golf courses! A favourite golfing spot in Johor is the Starhill Golf & Country Club.
Starhill Golf & Country Club was established in 1993. It is home to two courses – the Bukit and Bintang courses, which are both challenging, yet provides an enjoyable golfing experience.
The Bintang course, which is a 36-hole course, is sparsely clad with trees and hazards, which elevate the challenge of the golf course. This marvelous course is where most of the major golf events are held.The par 72 course is surrounded by swamps and rivers, which makes the water obstacles around the golf course, the challenging part of the course. The most beautiful hole is the 16th hole, par 3 – it has greens in the form of a star, playing at one hundred and ninety four yards. The black nine holds the more difficult holes.
Bukit, in Malay translates to ‘hill’, and as the name suggests, the main characteristic of this second course at Starhill Golf & Country Club is the undulating sloping terrains of the hill. The blue tees, par-72 measuring 6524 m in length pose a real difficulty as the holes are pretty far apart, along with other barriers like the ponds, bunkers, fairways and the uneven ground hindering your shots, makes it the perfect challenge for professional golfers.
Starhill Golf & Country Club also provide great facilities which you can enjoy, such as the Japanese Jacuzzi, golf facilities and a hilltop restaurant for you to enjoy a great meal within the golf premises. There is also a water park for kids to enjoy a fun-tastic time at this splash zone!
So, if you are looking for a great family golf vacation, Starhill Golf & Country Club will be one of your best choice!
