Golf In Genting
Situated about 3,100 feet above sea-level is the Awana Genting Highlands Golf & Country Resort where a Ronald Fream designed championship golf course rests. With picturesque green mountain views and refreshingly cool climates – a change from the humidity of the lowlands – a relaxed game can be enjoyed.
Precision is key at the Awana Genting’s 18-hole golf course as bent greens may falter your landing and a miscalculated hit could also land your ball in the surrounding jungles. Undulating greens and bunkers also pose hazards and though the presence of water is infrequent, they pose as great threats, especially at hole 4 and 15 where water crosses directly in front of the greens.
With accurate shot placement and good course management players may be able to conquer this course.
