Daiman 18 Golf Resort JB, Johor Golf
Daiman 18 Golf Course
The first 18-hole public golf course in Johor Bahru lies within one of its biggest townships, Taman Johor Jaya. Making do without the usual frills of a country club, it offers an affordable option for no-nonsense golfing (no night golfing, though). The bunkers and water hazards are strategically placed, while the greens are laid with Tifdwarf and fairways turf with Zoysia Marrella. As for the holes, golfers will have to experience back-to-back par-3 holes among the layout’s five little jewels and challenge the tract’s longest par-5 at 563-metres. They will also have to play two of the front side’s four par 4s at less than 280 metres and face 10 holes with water.
With space at a premium, golfers may have to be aware of parallel fairways along the course although the mature trees lining the fairways go a long way to stop errant shots. With dogleg sand humps in front that hide the greens on several holes, the course is made to look longer. The greens, fairly large, have only slight undulations.
Two of Daiman’s toughest holes ate the 16th, measuring 416 meters, is the longest par-4 on the course. Your drive must be long and accurate to avoid the bunker on the fairway. A slight dogleg right, the green has bunkers protecting it left and right. At 149 meters, the 17th presents an interesting problem. From the tees you have to look for your target as the left side of the green is partially blocked by trees, water is also present in front and to the right.
There are no caddies available and buggies are mandatory at Daiman 18. Despite being a public golf course, Daiman 18 has all the basic and usual facilities and amenities such as F&B and locker rooms all under the new clubhouse overlooking the 18th.
