Batu Gajah is a town situated in the Kinta Barat District that is rich with its own unique history. In the pre-independence era, Batu Gajah was widely known as ‘Bandar Bijih Timah (Tin Ore)’, as the town was the central hub for mining and distribution of tin ore. Back then, the tin mining industry encouraged the migration of miners and rubber plantation workers to Batu Gajah, prompting its growth and rise. This historical place also holds another beauty, Kinta Golf Club.

In the early 1900s, Kinta Golf Club had begun as a horse-riding area owned by an Australian farmer, Mr. Alma Baker. Later, in 1921, the area was transformed into a golf course, with Mr. Dickson Eric Ayton as its first president. In its founding years, the course had only 9 holes, and most of the members consisted of tin miners and rubber plantation owners who were of European descent. Here in this post, you will find all information related to Kinta Golf Club.

In 1998, the Club expanded to include 18 holes instead of 9. The state government had provided the Club with 60 additional acres of land to expand upon, and the expansion and development of the course and clubhouse were overseen by club members themselves.

RM 1.5 million in funds was used for the entire project. The funding for the project was mainly from the Ministry of Defense, and donations from the office of Almarhum Sultan Perak Sultan Azlan Muhibbuddin Shah. The current Sultan of Perak, Duli Yang Maha Mulia Paduka Seri Sultan Perak Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah is the patron of the Club.
