Royal Selangor Golf Course (RSGC) Old Course is one of Asia’s most prestigious and historical golf courses. Founded in 1893 by two Scotts men, the club has occupied its current site close to the center of Kuala Lumpur since the early 1900’s.
The lush, green parkland course sits like an oasis amid the concrete and chaos of Kuala Lumpur city center. Its slightly elevated position affords panoramic views of the city skyline. During the Second World War, the Old Course was used as a barracks and airstrip by the Japanese army, leading to extensive renovations shortly afterwards.
The RSCG is also known as the birthplace of the Malaysian Open after playing host to the inaugural tournament. The Malaysian Open continued to be held at the RSGC Old Course between 1962 and 1986, and then again in 2002.
More recently, the Old Course has been updated and remodeled by the respected design company, Robin Nelson and Neil Haworth. Each hole now offers a different golfing experience with multiple tees ensuring that golfers of varying skill levels, enjoy their game.
It should be noted that the RSGC Old Course is strictly walking only. Clubhouse facilities include restaurant, locker rooms, swimming pool, gymnasium, billiard room, and squash courts.
