It’s easy to be mesmerised by the might Bukit Takun limestone hills that towers over Templer Park Country Club as it takes on different moods depending on the weather.

Early starters will be welcomed by hills shrouded by thin veils of mist while on a good clear day, especially towards sunset, the “living” monument shimmers in its own special glow.

Built on a former mining wasteland, the course features a combination of flat and undulating terrain, measuring 6,725 yards from the blue markers with the ability to stretch to a stern 7,143 yards from the championship tees.

The first 14 holes are situated to the left of the clubhouse while the remaining four holes cut through a slightly elevated jungle area to the right.

Narrow tree-lined fairways with strategically placed sand traps meander around distinctive giant lakes, demand accuracy from tee-to-green with a fair risk-return tradeoff.

The lush fairways offers perfect lies while the fairly new Satiti greens -installed in 2009 – tease your putting abilities with their subtle breaks and true roll, with a  daily average speed of 10.5 of the Stimpmeter.

With a strong maintenance culture, Templer Park Country Club continues to stand the test of time, providing golfers of all skills set a rejuvenating golfing challenge.
