Carved out of a pristine forest reserve of Kledang Saiong Mountain range, Meru Valley resort stands out as one of the must-play golf courses in the silver state.
TRULY UNIQUE GOLFING EXPERIENCE
Nestled amidst 500-acres of emerald green terrain with a backdrop of majestic rolling hills, Meru Valley Resort was designed by Muhammed Kamel Yassin, a local designer who dovetails golf with natural splendour.
The championship golf course is made up of an elite collection of golf holes, each unique in character and strategy. Hence, golfers of all standards will be able to enjoy their game with an appropriate level of challenge. There are three signature holes on the course with one on each of the nines. Namely, Hole-6 on the Valley Nine, Hole-11 on the Waterfall Nine and Hole-26 on the River Nine.
The Hole-6 of Valley Nine is one of the few golf holes that offer two different greens; whereby golfers will only know which green is in play on the game day. Golfers will either play on the left green (shorter and requires precise iron shot) or the right green (longer). The right green has streams in front and to the left and it is larger than the left green but, none the less, more challenging than playing left.
A dog-leg mid fairway, a stream to the left of the fairway and a well-guarded 11th hole provides one of the most challenging holes on the Waterfall Nine. It is considered the toughest and the most deceptive course on the second nine; whereby tee shots need to be solid to prevent it from going into the rough or the two well-manicured white sand bunkers beside the pin.
The third signature hole on the course, Hole-26 of River Nine is dominated by a large former tin mining pond. Elevated tees enable golfers to get an excellent view of the task ahead. Players will wait in anticipation as their ball flies through the air for a safe landing on the opposite side of the pond!
