Travel Malaysia - Malacca Golf Course
by Parameswara, the historic city of Malacca is a living museum,
with both ruins and intact buildings from bygone eras right
in the heart of the city. The famous ruins of A Famosa (Porta
De Santiago), the Portuguese Square and the Portuguese Eurasians
have their origin in 1511, when the Portuguese defeated the
Malacca Sultanate. The red thick-walled Stadhuys, believed
to be the oldest Dutch building in the East, and the salmon
red Christ Church stem from the Dutch period which began in
1641. The lifestyle of the early rich Chinese who arrived
from the mid-15th century is well displayed in the Baba and
Nyonya Heritage Musuem. And In the old mosques dotted around
can be seen Sumatran and Javanese influence.
Antique buyers love Malacca, which also offers other attractions
such as the History Musuem, Kampung Hulu Mosque (1728), Cheng
HoonTeng Temple (1646), St Peter's Church (1710) and the Malacca
River Cruise. At Air Keroh are the Mini Malaysia Park and
Butterfly Farm. For beach lovers, Pantai Kundor is a white
sandy beach, and the islands of Besar and Upeh offer clean
waters for swimming.

natural undulations and man-made lakes, present a wonderful
golfing experience for a spectrum of enthusiasts. Each hole
is unique, accentuated by the original hilly contours. The

Bermuda Tidfwarf. The course is particularly ideal for leisurely
weekends where you can get the feel of truly relaxing golf.
The Crocs Nine features live crocodiles at one of the holes.
But don't worry, they do not come into play unless you hit
your ball onto their patch and try to retrieve it!
It's a smooth comfortable drive from Kuala Lumpur via the
North-South Highway. Just look out for the Alor Gajah toll
exit and follow the signage.
