Seremban 3 Paradise Valley Golf Resort
Tucked away on the outskirts of Negri Sembilanâ€™s capital and in the developing Seremban 3 Township, Paradise Valley Golf Resort is a charming course set on a hilly terrain.
Among its characteristics is water, a lot of it, that strengthens its makeup for a decent test.
Part of a plan that envisions a fully integrated township complete in harmony with the surrounding environment, Paradise valley is a par-72 18-hole course that measures 6,072 metres from the black tees.
The two nines â€“ Valley and Paradise â€“ stretch 2,879 metres and 3,193, and are not exceedingly difficult but the hillside tees, undulating fairways, sand bunkers, grass hollows, water hazards and contoured greens do make it interesting.
The Valley Nine is where the signature Peninsular Hole can be found. It is the 157 metres par-3 6th that is played from an elevated tee, which provides for a striking view of the green and hilly backdrop.
The hole is surrounded by water and a cluster of trees, and demands accuracy and good club selection.
The second hole plays the toughest at Paradise Valley. Although it is a short par-4 at just 314 metres, the narrowness of the landing area and the second shot, which is played uphill to a severely undulating green, provide its bite.
The water on the left, which runs more than halfway from tee to green, is a factor in this challenge as trying to play right could mean pushing the ball too much that way. Trouble will be encountered on the other side of the buggy track â€“ bush.
The two-storey clubhouse sits high on a hill and overlooks parts of the course with a great view. It comes with a driving range, golf shop, golfersâ€™ terrace and banquet hall, among other things.
The club enjoys multiple accesses from the North-South Highway and is a mere 10 minutes from Seremban, 20 minutes from Kuala Lumpur International Airport, 25 from Port Dickson and 45 minutes from Kuala Lumpur.
