A proprietary club owned by Island Golf Properties Berhad, the Bukit Jambul Country Club (BJCC) was incorporated in 1984. What was once a 130-acre hilly rugged and rocky jungle, BJCC has established itself as one ofMalaysia's top golf clubs. Since its opening in 1984, numerous extensions and renovations have enabled BJCC to be the preferred golfing avenue, such as being the host of the 31st Malaysian Open in 1992 which was won by Vijay Singh. Situated on a hilltop, BJCC provides a stunning panaromic view of the island, overseeing the impressive 13kmPenangBridge. Its stunning 18 hole 5,763 meter, par 72 golf course was designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. Probably the most famous is the 10th hole with its tee box perched 100 feet above the fairway on the valley floor. Acclaimed as the no.6 top golf course in the recent Golf Malaysia Golf Course Poll (2001/2002), BJCC has been the crossroads for many world renowned golfers, documenting great moments in golfing history.
Formerly called Bukit Jambul Golf Club and built in 1984, the Penang Golf Club has undergone a major facelift and reopened on November 2012 with new turf and some modifications to make it more challenging and exciting.
The original course design has been retained with cosmetic changes. The greens are larger and undulating, the tee boxes reshaped, bunkers filled with new sand and the areas around the bunkers improved, cart paths have been lengthened while most of the ponds are bigger with new retainer walls.
