Malaysia Golf Holidays

Malaysia is a bustling melting pot of races and religions where Malays, Indians, Chinese and many other ethnic groups live together in peace and harmony. Multiculturalism has not only made Malaysia a gastronomical paradise, it has also made Malaysia home to hundreds of colourful festivals. The Federation of Malaysia comprises of Peninsular Malaysia and the states of Sabah and Sarawak on the island of Borneo.

With over 200 golf courses it is perfect for our Malaysia Golf Holidays. Blessed with a diverse landscape and a hunger for quality tourism, there is the opportunity to build golf courses in the cool highlands, by the beach, nestled in the lush jungle or surrounded by gleaming skyscrapers. Most of these courses are built as part of 5-star resorts and luxury clubs and some of them rate among the world’s finest layouts.

Golf in Malaysia goes back well over a hundred years and the Malaysian team has played in the Eisenhower Trophy since 1958. There are now nearly 200 golf courses  to choose from…Of the very best, most are around Kuala Lumpur with the courses laid out by Trent Jones, Jack Nicklaus and the like over 20 years ago, offering wonderful experiences in a fascinating country.

Malaysia Golf Breaks

One of Malaysia's key attractions is its extreme contrasts. With our Malaysia Golf Breaks you will see towering skyscrapers looking down upon wooden houses built on stilts, and five-star hotels sit only metres away from ancient reefs. And cool, ultra-luxury hideaways are found in the highlands that roll down to warm, sandy beaches and rich, humid mangroves. As a people, Malaysians are very laid back, warm and friendly.

The capital of Kuala Lumpur is as energetic as any capital in the world. Non-stop entertainment, shopping, noise…It’s vibrant and fun but you’ll enjoy the calm of your hotel in the evenings. And once you’ve had your fill of the capital, you’ll be overwhelmed by the peace and quality of our golf resorts.

The country experiences tropical weather year-round. Temperatures are from 21ºC to 32ºC. Annual rainfall varies from 2,000mm to 2,500mm and comes in short, heavy blasts so the air is heavy but pure and the fauna and flora luxuriant.

Having had an interesting past and being a part of the international spice route many hundreds of years ago, Malaysia has turned into a mosaic of cultures. Everything from its people to its architecture reflect a colourful heritage and an amalgamated culture. To understand Malaysian culture, you must first get to know its people.

Malays, Chinese, Indians and many other ethnic groups have lived together in Malaysia for generations. All these cultures have influenced each other, creating a truly Malaysian culture.

Today, the Malays, Malaysia's largest ethnic group, make up more than 50% of the population. In Malaysia, the term Malay refers to a person who practices Islam and Malay traditions, speaks the Malay language and whose ancestors are Malays. Their conversion to Islam from Hinduism and Theravada Buddhism began in the 1400’s.  The Malays are known for their gentle mannerisms and rich arts heritage. The second largest ethnic group, the Malaysian Chinese form about 25% of the population. The Chinese are known for their diligence and keen business sense.

The smallest of main ethnic groups, the Malaysian Indians, form about 10% of the population. Most are descendants of Tamil-speaking South Indian immigrants who came to the country during the British colonial rule. Lured by the prospect of breaking out of the Indian caste system, they came to Malaysia to build a better life. Predominantly Hindus, they brought with them their colourful culture such as ornate temples, spicy cuisine and exquisite saris.
