Kinrara Golf Club

Kinrara Golf Club is located in Puchong. A mere 20 minute drive from KL city centre. It is a 5841 meter Par 71 18-hole public course. Beginners would have a great time playing here as they have decently wide fairways. Therefore it offers golfers a forgiving tee shot!

Moreover, if you love Par 3s, the front 9 would be an absolutely fun experience. At holes 3, 4 and 5, you would get three par 3s in a row so there’s 3 chances for you to get a hole in one consecutively! The prices at Kinrara are affordable as well which is a great place for beginners to start practicing too! This was also the place where I played my first 18-holes!

Monterez Golf & Country Club

Monterez would be one of the more challenging golf courses in this list. Located at Shah Alam, Selangor right behind the Subang Airport. Monterez is a 5738 meters 18-hole golf course. 

The only problem here for beginners is that it will be a challenge due to the narrow fairways and deep roughs. It is pretty hard to find your ball if you place it outside the fairway. On the plus side Monterez gives you value for money as the price is affordable for a great golf course. They host daily games on Deemples too!
