The Royal Selangor Golf Club, established in 1893, has a long and memorable history that is associated with the birth and dawn of golf in the South East Asia region. The founding ground of golf and the premier golf club of Malaysia, the RSGC, as it is popularly known, has played a most prominent role in the evolution of the game in this country and in making it a major recreational and sporting event here. Having played host to many international golf tournaments, a hallmark of quality and par excellence is synonymous with this august Club.
Today, the RSGC is home to over 6000 Members comprising Royalty, Cabinet, Ministers, foreign diplomats, corporate leaders, captains of industry, professionals and ordinary persons from different walks of life, who share a keen interest in golf and other sporting pursuits. The golf courses offer two 18 holes championship layouts and a short 9 holes option. Home to the first Malaysian Open, the historic Old Course, at 6,742 yards and playing to par-72, provides a memorable journey from the first tee to the 18th green. The New Course at 6,605 yards, par-72 is another fine 18-holes with undulating greens and generous fairway.
Fantastically a sanctuary amid the city centre, the beautifully landscaped 45 holes parkland course, with a panoramic view of the city's skyline, is always a joy for a game of golf. An abundance of matured trees, some of which are a hundred years or more, is a celebration of the Club's strong tradition and testament to its enduring existence. In an idyllic lush greenery and picturesque vista in the heart of the city centre, the golfing experience at the RSGC is indeedunbeatable.
