I think tons of GRisans have played there b4. except I didn't know there was a Mercure before the Palm Resort name..

i have not been there for years already...
but its got 3 courses.. more info on the website. better that someone who played there recently comment on the course conditions..

After I leave SNN in Singapore on last Wed. I just played in Horizon Hill and Palm Resort course on Sept 16 & 17 and stay a night in Mercure Hotel (room Rm 250.70 nett with 2 breakfast ).

I played alamanda and chempaka course on same day Sept 17 .. It is my 1st time there, course condition was okay .. You need to try the tournament course CHEMPAKA .. this course almost "eat me up" but I like it, challenging indeed from blue tee.

3rd nine is call Melati.

When the resort was under Sofitel, things were cheaper. e.g no need to pay extra for towels unljke last Dec when I was there; charged RM10 for extra towel.

At this pricing, me think better to go Pulai Spring.
Pay slightly more for better facilities.

Mloy,

alamanda 1 x 18 and chempaka 1 x 18 = 36 holes drunken lol! ROFL

wait a mintues : 1 + 1 = 2, 2 + 2 = 4, 3+3=6 ROFL

Aiyah....paiseh lah.

Too used to the naming convention at Poresia.

To set the record straight, Poresia's course names are by per nine and Palm Resort ones by 18s.

After reading all your comments, I gather that this course is difficult for a beginner, the price is expensive and the facilities not up to par.

OK! I will CANCEL the trip!
