Kuala Lumpur: A Top Golf Destination in the Making?

kl1Amongst the major cities in Southeast Asia, Kuala Lumpur by far enjoys a relatively lower profile as an ideal golf destination. But with development and improvement on infra-structure taking place over the last so many years, the city is slowly becoming a favourite not only among local and intra-regional golf enthusiasts but also internationally. GOLFnTours.com can vouch for this surge in popularity.

Whereas top golf destinations in the region are traditionally also hot tourist spots in the like of Phuket, Pattaya, Bali etc., Kuala Lumpur, an ex-capital city, is proving to be much more complete these days in catering to the needs of avid golfers ever eager to try new grounds. The array of top class hotels together with a full range of comfortable and yet affordable accommodation in and around the main business and entertainment area of Bukit Bintang, the good transport system, new and modern golf courses generally within an hour’s drive plus an improved standard of course management and maintenance have all contributed to the slow but sure rise of the city as a choice golf destination.

Intra-regional and local visitors generally prefer a Kuala Lumpur golf vacation package of 3 or 4 nights’ stay playing an average of 4 rounds of golf whereas those from faraway, usually from the annual golf holiday-orientated Western countries, generally require at least a week’s stay with shopping days slotted in between the one-round-per-day golf days. Of late, with the increase in popularity of the sport in China, many more young, up-&-coming executives and professionals are also visiting Kuala Lumpur, partly because the city is new to them and partly too because of the mixed-race culture of the country which has many things quite common to what they are familiar with back home. A popular golf holiday package for them would be to include local tour programme for non-golfers who are wives or girl friends coming along. By no mere coincidence, golf visitors from the Indian sub-continent are seemingly on the same trend, and not unexpectedly for just about the same reasons as well.

No doubt Kuala Lumpur has some of the best golf courses in the region. This is evident in the numerous high-profile international tournament held in recent times. Many top golfers in the world have graced the courses not least is Tiger Woods, winning the World Cup in 1999 for the US with Mark O’Meara at the Mines Resort & Golf Club, which incidentally has just roped in the retiring Annika Sorenstam to design a major golf complex in the mould of Shenzhen’s Mission Hills. The story line is by no means a generalization but it more or less points the way up for a good golf vacation in Kuala Lumpur for anyone.
