Starhill Golf & Country Club
(lightly tree lined, parkland layout)
The Bintang Course offers an interesting range of difficulties for the golfer. At a length of 6,834 yards from the tips, the par -72 layout which is built largely over riverine and swamp areas poses many challenges. Water serves as the primary obstacle for this course although the fairways are wide and generous. Each hole on this course has been designed to provide a new and exciting challenge to the golfer. The fairways are turfed with Zoysia Matrella, while Tifdwarf carpets the greens. The signature hole the Par 3, 16th has a star-shaped green playing at 194 yards
(undulating but wide fairways and large greens)
Bukit means “hill” in Malay and as its name suggests, one can expect undulating hills to be the main feature of this course. Unlike its sister course “Bintang” the Bukit is considered the easier of the 2 courses with wider fairways, fewer trees and less water. The slopping terrains of the hills result in many uneven lies and other obstacles such as ponds, fairways and green bunkers are ready to swallow up any mishit shot. Par-72 and measuring 7135 yards (6524 metres) in length, the blue tees are a formidable distance and are a real challenge for those game enough to venture to the tips.
