Royal Palm Springs Golf Club
Port Dicksonâ€™s Royal Palm Springs Golf Club is a flat course parked along the shores of the straits of Malacca. And with the exceptionally taxing difficulties, given it is a resort course, the winds that blow off the sea often bring the most damage to scorecards.
Measuring 6,174 metres from the back tee boxes, Royal Palm Springs is an 18-hole layout that plays to a par-72 and is situated on the 500 acre Palm Springs Resort City.
The opening hole at Royal Palm Springs Golf Club is a straight forward par-4 that measures 324 metres. The demand here is to hit is straight off the tee and do the same with the approach shot because, while it takes a direct route to the green, it is narrow. Tall pine trees line the right side of the fairway and the rough on the right can also cause problems.
No. 15, which used to be a par-4 has been converted to a par-3, and remains the layoutâ€™s signature hole. A medium length 154 metes, this hole plays uphill to a contoured green that has a beautiful view of the sea, thus its stature as Royal Palm Springâ€™s main attraction.
Adjacent to the golf club is the self contained and integrated resort, comprising, among other things, holiday villas and apartments, and a string of recreational activities.
