Major makeovers and outstanding leadership have put Meru Valley Resort, Ipoh in continuous limelight this year.

The great Socrates once said that the secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new. It appears that this philosophy has found its way to the resort as its locally designed course has been named the “Most Improved Courses of the Year 2017” by Golf Magazine Malaysia, the most widely read golf monthly.

“The honour is a testament to our amazing team and the work they do here every day,” said Colin Coles, the Golf Course Superintendent. “An improved golf course should be a big draw for golfers,” added Christian Bock, Director of the resort.

Over the past few months, the various maintenance works done included increased cultural practices throughout all main play areas of the golf course inclusive of greens, tees, fairways, bunkers and rough. Drainage works were carried out around the golf course as well.

Green speeds are now consistently maintained around 9.5ft to 10ft. In addition, the resort has increased mowing practices and height adjustments to greens, tees and fairways. Tee boxes have had their mowing perimeters re-aligned, to point more directly to the centre line of play, whilst other selected tees are being levelled and re-grassed.

The course renovations are shining examples of the investment being made at the golf course to produce one of the state’s top golf and social experiences. Meru Valley Resort is truly humbled with this recognition and is more determined now than ever to provide extraordinary services to all their members and patrons.
