Pulai Springs Country Club Pulai Course, nestled at the foothills of Mount Pulai, is naturally endowed with breath-taking views and sweeping panoramas of rolling greens and undulating hills. Pulai Springs Resort is home to two championship golf courses and was once ranked as one of the World’s Top 50 Golf Resorts.
Pulai Springs Country Club Pulai Course is an outstanding Trent Jones II design. Played from the tips at 6819 yards, the Robert Trent Jones designed Pulai Course is a test for the best golfers in Malaysia. The quality, presentation and maintenance, never easy in tropical countries, is generally excellent. Beyond the course, large swathes of what was dense jungle have been cleared to make way for Johor Bahru’s urban sprawl. Thankfully the housing developments do not interfere with or detract from the excellence of the wonderful Pulai course.
Pulai Springs Country Club Pulai Course is characterized by its ever-present and very stylish bunkering. Like its companion course, the Melana, the holes are laid out on constantly undulating, lightly tree-lined terrain. Although the good-width fairways will appeal to big-hitters, sand looms large for wayward drives and for approach shots that are either short or slightly offline to left or right. Elevated tee-boxes give golfers great looks at the holes ahead. The requirement is usually for a well-placed tee shot, and then a carefully judged approach shot to an elevated green, usually fiercely defended by a multiplicity of deep bunkers.
