Opened in 1994, the Village Course at Tanjong Puteri Golf Resort incorporates hills, valleys, lakes and views of local villages. It is one of three 18-hole golf courses on the 800-acre site. It takes 30-minutes by car to reach the resort from either the Singapore-Johor causeway or Johor Bahru itself.
The course is named after the ancient village communities that used to exist on the land when it was an oil palm estate. Some of these villages still exist and are on the fringes of holes 6,11 & 12. The Village course is 6,399 meters in length from its tips. More than two thirds of the holes on the course are bordered by water, either around their fairways or greens.
The Village Course shares a large clubhouse with its two sister courses, the Straits Course and the Plantation Course. With a choice of four different restaurants, there is a food option to suit all tastes.
Accommodation at the resort is basic and mostly booked by local groups. You are best advised to look elsewhere is you are considering overnighting in the area. Facilities at Tanjong Puteri Golf Resort include a 52-bay driving range and practice greens. On-course services include golf carts – in fact they are mandatory – but caddies are not available for hire.
