Situated on the South Western tip of Peninsula Malaysia, Kukup Golf Resort provides 18 holes courses spread over 312 acres.
18 holes are on undulating rolling terrain whose main hazards are bunkers. To complete the outing the winner can treat the gang to lunch or dinner at one of the many Seafood Restaurants at the Kukup fishing village which is barely five minutes drive away. The resort is easily accessible from Singapore via the 2nd. link or by ferry.
Beutifully landscapes amidst mangrove, shrubs and palm fronds, only the best grass was chosen, Bermuda-Tifdwarf for the greens and Bermuda-Tifway 419 for the fairways. Designed by Atsumi Kawase, Japan’s premier golf course designer, littered with bunker’s, rough and surrounded by water, a round of golf at Kukup Golf Resort has the perfect balance of beauty and hazards, which are physically not too demanding but will still challenge the risk taker.
Only 45 minutes by car from Singapore through the second link is Kukup Golf Resort. It is a 4-hour drive from Kuala Lumpur and well worth the visit.
The clubhouse offers a sports and recreation centre with badminton courts, squash courts, tennis courts, a music lounge, a pro-shop, villa rooms and a lagoon pool. There is also delicious seafood at the local restaurant.
