The Saujana Golf & Countr y Club came about in 1983 when 400 acres of free­hold plan­ta­tion land was set aside with the idea to cre­ate two 18-hole cour­ses, a club­house and ac­com­mo­da­tion. The cour­ses were de­signed by the renowned golf course ar­chi­tect, Ron­ald Fream, and the club opened in 1986. Even­tu­ally, it be­came one of the most pop­u­lar cour­ses in the re­gion.

One of its two 18-hole Par 72 cham­pi­onship golf cour­ses, The Palm Course, was voted the World’s 6th Tough­est Golf Course by CNNGO.COM in 2012, while The Bunga Raya Course earned a spot in Golf Di­gest’s Top 100 Best Cour­ses Out­side The USA in 2005.

Saujana Golf and Coun­try Club has hosted nine Malaysian Opens for PGA Asian and Euro­pean Tours, on top of other in­ter­na­tional tour­na­ments. Off the course, mem­bers have ac­cess to the Countr y Club’s top-notch fa­cil­i­ties like the Olympic-size swim­ming pool, flood-lit out­door ten­nis cour ts, a sauna and a pro shop. There is also a golf academy with two pros of­fer­ing lessons to ev­ery­one from sin­gle hand­i­cap­pers to chil­dren. Jalan Subang, Sec­tion U2, Shah Alam, Se­lan­gor Tel: 03-7846 1466
