Golf

Malaysia has an abundance of golf courses, many of which are high-standard courses that were designed by pros. You can hire a car from any tour operator (try Red Fury Tours; Ste. 2.18, Wisma Central, Jalan Ampang; tel. 03/2162-2693) for about RM90 each way to either of the country clubs listed below. Each club is located about 30 or so minutes outside of KL in ideal traffic conditions. During early-morning rush hour, you should double this time.

The Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club, 10 Jalan 1/70D Off Jalan Bukit Kiara (tel. 03/2093-9999, www.klgcc.com), has two courses, 18 holes each, par 71 and 72, designed by R. Nelson and R. Wright. Greens fees are RM400 weekdays and RM600 weekends (only the East Course is open to nonmembers).

Saujana Golf & Country Club, Km 3, Jalan Lapangan Terbang Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah, 46783 Subang Selangor (tel. 03/7846-1466; www.saujana.com.my), has two 18-hole courses, each par 72, designed by Ronald Fream, with greens fees from RM280 weekdays and RM400 weekends and holidays.
