Sabah Golf and Country Club is being rated one of the most challenging Golf Courses in South East Asia. It is designed by Robert Muir Graves and opened for play in 1976. This 18-hole layout was remodeled in 2004 by Nelson & Haworth Golf Course Architects.
With a course rating of 73.3 off the back tees, the par-72 18 hole golf course measuring 6,335 meters with hilly terrain, undulating fairways, lakes, hidden sand bunkers and adverse wind conditions offer endless challenges to golfers. Sabah Golf and Country Club have 24 bay driving range and two practice putting greens giving golfers an area to warm up before teeing off.
Sabah Golf & Country Club can proudly declare itself to be the State’s oldest 18-hole golf course. Though nowhere near as old as the Kudat golf course, which has passed the century mark, the 32 year old golf course presents a golfing experience like no other. Well-known as one of the toughest golf courses in South East Asia, this traditional inland golf course was designed by Robert Muir Graves.
For most of the holes in Sabah Golf and Country Club, a long and straight shot is not enough. Each shot has to be a well-placed shot to avoid water hazards and bunkers. One of the noteworthy hole, the monster hole, hole-14 requires and accurate shot when trying to land on the green. The green is protected by water in front and on the right. If you are nervous, you should place your shot on the left and trade the water for sand.
