Bangi Golf Resort is a 27-hole Kuala Lumpur golf course consisting of the Kajang, Putrajaya and Bangi nines. At times quite testing, at others easier-going, this is a pleasant parkland layout, popular with both local and visiting golfers. The signature hole is the par-4 7th, with a testing carry over water to the green. About half the holes on this Malaysia golf course bring water into play, and good bunkering often threatens along the fairway and especially greenside. Bangi is a fun golf course.

Fun because the first nine has 3 par 5s. The first is a reachable one with a sharp dogleg almost 90 degree to the left. In one mighty stroke, you can cut the entire dogleg over the trees and land with an 8 – 9 iron distance for eagle. The second par 5 is also reachable with a good drive and roll; and a wood or long iron into the green guarded by two front bunkers. Finally the par-5 9th plays the easiest. An easy cut of the dog leg left will catch the hill and roll down.

The second and third nine are more traditional, in a sense of regulation golf. Possibly the most memorable par 4 is the 13th. It’s 260m to cross the pond onto the green, or you could go for a safer route to the left fairway where a long iron or wood would be enough. Bangi always welcomes golfers with open arms and you’ll appreciate the shortness of the golf course if you are playing with beginners.

Course conditioning and the on-site golf resort could be of better standard. Nevertheless, green fees are reasonable and golfing at Bangi Golf Resort has the makings of a pleasant day for most.
