Austin Hills Golf Resort Malaysia is located only 15 kilometers from the Johor Bahru causeway and less than 30 minutes from Singapore via the EDL link. The resort boasts an 18-hole championship golf course and a world-class clubhouse of unparalleled grandeur and elegance.
The course was designed by Nigel B Douglas. Sometimes it’s the little things that make a big difference in setting apart a great golf club from an average one. At Austin Hills Golf & Hotel Resort, we got the little things right such as the ‘club sandwich as you make the turn. Recently renovated and also known having the ‘Biggest room in town’ our Hotel room guaranteed the best deal. Also, the attitude of the staff throughout the course and the quality of the caddie. They all add up to that intangible quality that many of the great clubs have.

Austin Hills Golf Resort Malaysia Signature Holes
The 10th hole on the other hand is clearly the most difficult handicap hole on the course and by a lot. The hole is a 500 meters par five that plays layup when ponds are guarding the fairway 200m from the tee, uphill, and then with wild slopes at the green fringe. The green slopes from back to front and is very challenging. Once on the green, it is too fast to hold putts. Skill is needed.
A short par 3 but it’s all laid out in front of you as you can drive from an elevated tee. The dips front left and right of the green often catch a drive hit short, so make sure you take enough club to reach the putting surface. Having done that, beware of the out-of-bounds back left of the green. Playing to the right-hand side of the green is the wisest choice
A drive down the middle is needed here by keeping the tee shot between the fairway bunkers and pond at this semi-island fairways. Beware of the hazard pond all the way up the right and left. A straightforward hole that requires straight hitting. Remember that there is a slight rise up to the front edge of the green so take enough club to get on.
A 385 meters par-four eighteen-hole was my favorite on the course. It sweeps down the hill from a tee box at the top and you have to play your second shot over the lake to a very well-protected green. The majestic clubhouse in the background adds to the grandeur of the hole.
Some golf courses require a little “insider knowledge” and Austin Hills Golf Resort Malaysia is one of those. And some golf courses play tougher the first time simply because you’re not familiar with the slopes, meters, or the best angles for approaches and this is one of those. If this is your first time teeing it up at the Championship Club good course management will help significantly.Cheers!
