Nexus Golf Resort Karambunai Course Details

Nexus Golf Resort Karambunai is a premier golf course on Borneo Island, Kota Kinabalu. A drive from Kota Kinabalu City to the resort takes a measly 30 minutes. Plus, the golf course is within walking distance of the resort which is renowned for its beauty. Speaking of beauty, the course was beautifully designed by a well-known American architect, Ronald Fream and was established in 1996.

The course is set within a 130-million-year-old tropical Borneo rainforest and the South China Sea. This par-72 international golf course has won various awards including the ‘Best Golf Course in East Malaysia’ by the Golf Magazine poll in 2007/2008. Moreover, Nexus Golf Resort has an incredible portfolio of hosting some of the top golf championships. One of them is the 105th Malaysian Amateur Open Golf Championship in 2007.

In terms of its features, the course showcases a wide range of picturesque views from the jungle all the way to the beach with lakes in between to add a bit of challenge. Speaking of challenge, the course is perfect for golfers of all levels. As a matter of fact, the course was designed for that exact reason so all players get a fair chance despite their varying experiences. However, the course still requires strategy and focus to score well so don’t expect it to be a piece of cake either.
