IMG announced that two of Malaysia’s leading clubs, Kota Permai Golf & Country Club and Horizon Hills Golf & Country Club have joined the IMG Prestige global network of world class clubs and resorts.
Owned by leading property developer Gamuda Land, both clubs are recognized among the best in Malaysia, and have an impressive history of hosting high profile professional golf events, and winning awards for the quality of their courses.
Located just 30 minutes from Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Kota Permai Golf & Country Club features an outstanding 18 hole championship course that is set in a stunning natural location. With tree lined fairways and water coming into play throughout the course, it’s a great test of golf, and is well known for its superb course conditioning.
Horizon Hills Golf & Country Club is located in Johor Bahru in Southern Malaysia and is a short drive across the causeway from Singapore. Since opening in 2008, the 18 hole championship course that is the centrepiece of a world class residential development, has established a reputation for offering one of the best golf experiences in the region.
Paul Burley, Senior Vice President, IMG Golf Course Services, commented: “These are two fantastic additions to our growing network of world class clubs and resorts. I’m confident that IMG Prestige members from all over the world will enjoy playing at Kota Permai and Horizon Hills, as both courses are among the best in South East Asia.
