Renowned among golfers, the 18-hole course layout at Mount Kinabalu Golf Club presents a dual challenge that tests both physical prowess and mental acumen, owing to its unceasing winds, steep gradients, and enshrouding mists. On certain occasions, the thick fogs contribute to an almost ethereal atmosphere, evoking the sensation of playing amidst the clouds.
The 14th hole stands out, a par 3 at 142 meters, boasting a rushing river nestled within a deep ravine. It demands precision as players confront the task of launching an accurate shot from an elevated tee over the Mesilau East River to secure a spot on the green perched at the edge of a precipice.
Comprehensive facilities are available at Mount Kinabalu Golf Club, including a clubhouse, a golfers’ lounge, practice areas for putting and chipping, a golf shop, and services like buggy rental, golf shoes and equipment rental, and caddy assistance.
