Located only 25 minutes from the center of Kuala Lumpur, The Kelab Golf Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah 27-hole layout is connected to royalty not only through its location, but also by its designer, 5-times Open Champion, Peter Thomson, is one of the “kings” of the game. The constantly undulating Thomson layout here comprises three nine-hole loops (President, Sultan and Alam Shah), each of which shelves away from the clubhouse, before climbing back to it. Using the natural undulations of the terrain and beauty of lakes, along with more than 25,000 trees and shrubs, the result is a picturesque landscape. The parkland KGSAAS courses are challenging without being overly dramatic. Thomson’s trademark pot bunkers, rolling fairways and medium-to-large elevated greens all feature strongly.
