Putra Golf Club



Golf is one of the rapidly developing sports in Malaysia. In fact, most avid golfers say that Malaysia is the golfing world’s best kept secret, for the country’s golfing infrastructure, a legacy of its colonial past, is very well-developed. Malaysia hosts more than 200 golf courses including several championship golf courses designed by leading lights of the golfing world like Jack Nicklaus, Robert Trent Jones Junior, Max Wexler, and Ronald Fream amongst others.
Many of Malaysia’s golfing greens are set in the midst of bustling cities or border diverse terrains, like dense tropical forests, high cliffs, or pristine white sand beaches. Playing golf in Malaysia is also an relatively inexpensive experience when compared to many other golf destinations of the South East Asian region. Most golf clubs in Malaysia welcome visitors and charge reasonable visitor green fees that range from 50 to 200 RM excluding cart and caddie fees.
One such popular golf course in Malaysia is the Putra Golf Club. This club is located at a distance of about 10 km from the delightful town of Kangar in Malaysia’s smallest state, Perlis, situated in the northern most region of Peninsular Malaysia bordering Thailand. The Putra golf club is the only golf green in the state and is equipped with a par 72 18-hole course.  Although the layout of the course looks easy at first, seasoned professionals should tread carefully, for this course which has a rather rustic ambience due to its fairways being covered in cow grass is littered with strategically-placed traps like problematic water hazards and tricky bunkers and ravines.

The golf club is additionally equipped with a well-maintained club house which offers dining facilities.
