Tropicana Golf & Country Resort
The Tropicana Golf & Country Resort's 27-hole championship golf course is known to be among the best in the country, with many golf enthusiasts regularly making this a key stop of their golfing itinerary.
At the Tropicana Golf & Country Resort, there is a game of golf to be enjoyed no matter day or night. There are two challenging dream courses complete with rolling slopes and sweeping valleys, each designed to the United States Golfers Association specifications,which offer golfing pleasure to champion and amateur golfers alike. The nine-hole East Course and the 18-hole West Course feature strategically located sand and water hazards amidst picturesque holes on the rolling green.
The excellent macro and micro drainage system of the courses ensures that players need not delay their games after rain. Game can be resumed a mere 15 minutes even after a heavy, tropical downpour. In addition, the courses are automatically irrigated by a sophisticated, computerised system of sprinklers, which control the volume, spot and duration of water sprayed. As night arrives, there is also no need for keen golfers to abandon their game as 18 holes (nine holes on each course) are lit up for continued play by clusters of non-glare floodlights, a high-tech lighting system is similar to that used in the Barcelona Olympics.
Tropicana Golf & Country Resort set out to build a world-class golf course that will be the enjoyment of both avid and amateur golfers. The services of Mr Graham Marsh of the renowned Australian team, Marsh-Watson Pty Ltd, with a string of five-star rated projects in Australia under their belt such as The Vines in Perth and Robina Woods on the Gold Coast, were engaged to design and construct Tropicana’s golf course.
Build upon the natural terrain of a former rubber plantation and at a cost of over RM35 million, the East Course was first opened to great expectations in 1993. Needless to say, the golf course which was said to have been “designed to bring out the best in any player” has met and exceeded these expectations. Many golf veterans have commented that it is indeed a pleasure to play at the Tropicana Golf Course and that it has a special appeal to high handicappers and professionals alike.
