Has anyone ever played at the Palm Garden Golf Club & IOI Resort in Putrajaya (Malaysia)? I may be playing there next week and wanted a heads-up of what to expect.

Hi,

I never try that green before.
But hope you can share with me once you played there next week.

LS, this one different la. This is the one on the way to Putrajaya in KL after Seri Kembangan.

Played there once...long time ago. Love the landscape. Very well maintained club as I remember. Have a good game there.

Palm very easy...got my fist birdie and almost break 50 (my 3rd full 18h hole game)
Putra also nice

IOI never get to play, that day too many pros playing so they divert us to Palm, but got tee off at the 19th hole.

overall a very good comfortable course. The scenery is very nice and lots of long flat fairways (and relatively wide). When teeing off very shiok, can see your ball travel the distance, unlike MBGC, cannot see where the ball lands.

Best round of golf in my very short golf life. Funniest part our buggy almost got hit by a car (we need to cross an actual road!!!)

Thanks folks. I'll see how it goes. Sounds like I may need to bring my scuba gear Smile

Putra is fun! but ioi is soooo tiring!!!

Right. Sounds like a commando-type course. Thanks for the heads-up. I'll make sure that I bring sufficient water and energy bars Wink

Wow. Ok, I'll go check it out. I hope my game is still on. Looks like 2 flights. If all goes ahead, I'll see if I can take some pics and post review here.
