Malaysian golf attractions  

For a long time, Malaysia has been one of South-East Asia's most-renowned destinations in terms of landscapes and attractions. It is also beginning to gain an excellent reputation for its golfing facilities.
There are upwards of 200 golf courses spread across Malaysia's peninsular and island regions, offering a vast array of conditions. Whether you are a serious golfer, or someone who just prefers whacking some golf balls while enjoying a pleasant walk, there will be a course to suit all tastes.
Malaysia possesses a fantastic range of beautiful backgrounds for its nine or eighteen hole courses. Some of them are situated high up in the country's Highlands, set amongst verdant greenery. Here the cool breezes wafting from the Pacific Ocean offer the perfect antidote to all that strolling between holes. On the other hand there are some excellently-designed golf courses by the shore of the South China Sea. These are uniformly built to international standard. In fact, you will often find that the course itself is much more than an expanse of grass with a variety of holes and flags set on it. The courses themselves are built to highlight the natural surroundings, blending in to the tropical backdrop.
Golf in Malaysia therefore serves various purposes. It provides excellent exercise. It allows you to test your technique as the courses vary, from those ideal for beginners to those aimed at sportsmen or sportswomen who already boast a number of trophies in the cabinet. But perhaps most of all, they allow you to indulge your sporting passion while immersed in Malaysia's natural beauty.
