The Tanjong Puteri Golf Resort is home to the Straits Course, as well as two other 18-hole golf courses. Constructed on an 800-acre plot of land, alongside the waterfront, the resort is just a 30-minute drive from Singapore.
The Straits Course hugs the coastline of the Straits of Johor closely and was the last of the three courses to be created on the resort. The course is renowned for being challenging, not only because of the strong sea breezes and undulating terrain, but also because of the mangrove swamps that surround it.
High tides on the second hole regularly bring water from the mangroves into play. Facilities include a 52-bay driving range, a practice green and a large clubhouse with four restaurant options.
Service on the course is ok, however caddies are not available and golf carts are mandatory. Accommodation at the resort is only average and caters more to the local crowd. Our advice would be to look elsewhere if you are thinking of staying over in the area.
