Horizon Hills Golf & Country Club

Horizon Hills Golf and Country Club, Johor Bahru
Horizon Hills is a new gem to behold. A breathtaking, self-contained township in a lush green, gated environment complete with a private 18-hole golf course. A 1,200-acre freehold township development in the heart of Nusajaya, a key flagship zone within the Iskandar Development Region (IDR).

Logo Horizon Hills Golf and Country Club, Johor BahruHorizon Hills’s signature offering and star attraction is a RM30 million 18-hole international championship golf course designed by renowned Australian Golf Course Architect, Ross Watson, on a 200-acre naturally undulating golf course and a RM50 million resort clubhouse designed by Argentinean Architect, Ernesto Bedmar with a host of 5-star amenities including an Olympic-sized swimming pool, gymnasium, tennis courts, golf & sports shop, F & B outlets and a grand ballroom.

For a more unique experience, Ross Watson has applied the “Risk Reward” design principle to the golf course, preserving the natural terrain of the land, with lots of waterways. Many holes feature dramatic changes in elevation from tee to green. For a long hitter, temptation is to go for the greens on the par-4 of hole 4 and hole 16.

Moreover, hole 17 features a very interesting Island Green, a rather short par-3 of about 130 metres, where accuracy and club selection is important. Hole 18 is a very dramatic finishing hole. For the long and accurate hitters, the temptation is to go for the Island Fairway. Once there, the next shot to the green is a middle-to-long iron on this par-5 hole. Two good shots and an eagle would be waiting.

The unique features of the golf course include classical bunkering with sweeping sand faces. Strategically located cascading waterfalls, pristine ponds and lakes feature throughout the course, posing many interesting challenges to both serious and aspiring golfers alike.

The greens are planted with “Tifeagle”, a new hybrid of Bermudagrass developed exclusively for putting greens in the tropics. “Tifeagle” has proven to be a premier putting surface and it delivers the putting speed, consistency and smooth surface desired and can be groomed to speeds of 11 to 12 on the stimpmeter. “Tifeagle” recovers more quickly from mechanical injury, has better colour, and is extremely drought-tolerant and disease-resistant.

The Tees, Fairways and Roughs are planted with “Seashore Paspalum” (Paspalum vaginatum), a new turfgrass species and cultivars that have a high degree of salt tolerance. This grass has been used extensively in the tropics with consistently good results. It is a lush, low growing turfgrass with a nice texture, provides a good “ball sit” and rich green colour. This grass has rapid grow-in and recovery rate from traffic and divots.
