The Legends Golf & Country Resort located in Johor, Malaysia is an easy 40-minute drive from Singapore via the second causeway. The course is a world class 27 hole layout, with 18 holes designed by Jack Nicklaus and 9 holes by Arnold Palmer.
The Par 72, 6710m (7338 yd) 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Course was fully open for play in June 1997, and offers a mix of tropical scenery and challenging play for golfers of all levels. The signature hole is the 6th, and is one of the most beautiful in the country. A split fairway divided by a long cluster of sand traps, 2 ponds and a small dam make for interesting, dramatic scenarios.
The spectacular 9 hole, 3,326-metre Arnold Palmer Course was open in April 2009. It complements the existing 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Course, and is of the highest international standard. The fairways, tees and greens are classic Palmer style. The golf course is long with generous landing areas from the tees. The greens are well guarded with sand bunkers, grass hollows and trees. Low handicap golfers will appreciate that they can shape their shot to further enhance their strategic advantage. The greens are big, with undulation that will test the players’ ability to judge movement, pace and optical illusions. Each green is unique and all waterside or island greens are very close to take elevations in the best Palmer tradition.
The Legends Golf & Country Resort offers a full service clubhouse and unique family facilities such as horse riding, and fishing. Kids will love the playground and tree-house, and learn more about nature in the vegetable garden. The Legends guestrooms are built and furnished in contemporary Asian style. Guests can enjoy natural and rustic surroundings with no compromise to comfort. Most rooms come with exotically landscaped outdoor showers to bring nature closer to you.
