Gunung Raya Golf Resort is located centrally in Kisap and few minutes drive from the Kuah Town. This beautiful sprawling course nestled at the foothill of Mountain Gunung Raya covers an area of 300 acres which once used to be rubber plantation.
This is a 18-hole championship course (par 72 and 6228 meters long) designed by the renowned Golf Architect Max Wexler from America. The course was first opened in 1998 and since then has been continuously maintained and renovated to keep it current and upgraded. Recently a clubhouse has been added with modern facilities.
This course has been the home for many tournaments including the one hosted annually in September by the Malaysia's Royal family. The tournament is known as Pialal Mu’adzam Shah Golf Tournament. Gunung Raya has been traditionally one of the most popular golf courses in the island. On a usual day, you will find about 300 golfers in the ground (most of course are locals and some are foreign visitors).
