Saujana Golf & Country Club have two International championship golf courses; both endorsed by the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews (R&A) and the United States Golf Association (USGA). The Palm Course and the Bunga Raya Course are world renowned and are choice venues for International events such as the World Amateur Team Championships (Eisenhower Trophy & Espirito Santo Trophy) and one of Asia’s most prestigious event–the Malaysian Open.
Bunga Raya means ‘Hibiscus’ in the Malay language - Nicknamed ‘The Crocodile’, Bunga Raya Course has beautiful rolling landscape and serene pools which add new dimensions to the game. Consisting of a wide expanse of water and undulating greenery that creates a sense of freedom and space, it is 7034-yards in length and looks deceptively easy with many players who have regretted underestimating it. The course recently underwent a renovation with a new layout and design done by E&G Parslow. Introducing a new spectrum of technology, Mini Verde greens & Bermuda 419 fairways.
Carved out of an oil palm plantation, the Palm Course boasts of a rugged terrain, with slopes which drop to steep ravines. Golfers playing on this daunting course have to negotiate water hazards over seven holes. In addition, numerous bunkers and dense clusters of palms lining the fairways, punish the golfer for an errant shot. Dubbed "The Cobra", the Palm Course can be deadly to any level of golfer.
