JOHOR BAHRU, Malaysia, Oct. 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — In the 6th list of Asia’s Top 100 Courses, only 4 golf courses in Malaysia received invaluable recognition, with Country Garden Forest City Golf Resort Classic Course ranked 49th. Forest City Golf Resort includes two world-class golf courses and a five-star golf hotel which serves as a clubhouse in the center of the resort.
The Legacy course opened in 2018 and designed by golfing legend Jack Nicklaus and his son Jack Nicklaus II. This par-72 course stretches 7,386 yards from the black markers and covers an area of 739,700 square yards. The course features sandy, brushy wasteland and has a desert-inspired concept surrounded by mangroves and natural water.
The Classic Course is the second course at Forest City Golf Resort. It was designed by Liang Guokun (LGK), a seasoned Chinese golf course designer with 30 years of experience in landscape architecture. The LGK design concept depicts natural, connected lakes to provide water for irrigation and add a sense of movement.
Since forest town has a strong emphasis on sustainable lawn care, the golf course is maintained to a high standard. Thanks to extensive maintenance, the daily average speed of the green is guaranteed to exceed 9.2, providing golfers with a better experience.
There were once many well-known golfers who played at Forest City Golf Resort, such as Kelly Tan, Gavin Green, etc. This golf resort is also where many international tournaments are held. So far this year, 44 international golf events have taken place, including the Tunku Laksamana charity golf event on September 11.
Going forward, Forest City will continue to maintain the high quality of the golf course and make Forest City Golf Resort a tourist map of Johor Bahru.
