GA rating on Nilai Spring Golf & Country Club

Sincerely I was expecting more. On other hand not much can be said about it. It is an interesting course to play. 27 holes with 3 nines named Mango , Island and Pines. I can really figures out the reason why they named it that way , but I do hope anyone of you out there who knows do tell us.
The changing room is quite standard. They have all the basic facilities and all the things you expect from a changing room. Right infront of the changing room , the pro shop is widely publicised by a local Golf Vendor. I guess sponsorship has its price. Buggies , well , I have an exceptional nasty comment on it. But I wont take the pleasure of mentioning it here in the public eyes , its for you to try it and have fun with it.
Most of the distance are quite short par 4 and par 5 and can be easily reached if you are handicapp 12 and below. Those beyond 13 to 24 and novie golfer might have problem to cope with the slopes on the fairway and some tricky hazards location. But come to think of it if you can't hit it straight , it won't helps in any course you played. I have special interest of the 10th hole on Island nine. It is interesting when you asked a golfer to lay up on his tee shot and asking them to make a good second shot from on top of hill facing a big pond infront of you.
The green are well maintained and I took a bit of time to get myself familiarise with the green speed. It looks slippery but it bites. Which explains why I managed to get two birdiesw on the back nine. Playing from the blue tee box , the course looks interesting. Variety of slopes and dog legs.

Overal I rated the course 7 out of 10. Good facilities except for the buggies. Nice course layout and good varieties. Restaurant services are not bad. and last but not least a good course to visit . GA says go there and enjoy your golf.
