Kelab Golf Sultan Abd Aziz Shah - KGSAAS, Shah Alam

High quality fairways and good greens ... and a view of the Shah Alam state mosque! This is KGSAAS! A round will set you back about RM$250 on a Saturday though, ouch!

Time to tee off! Four J's were in the game!!

Notes from the corporate website ...

KGSAAS is popularly referred to as “The Home of Night Golfing”, Kelab Golf Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah (KGSAAS) is the country’s premier golf resort offering a 27-hole USGA class championship golf course, which is the first and only one in the world with all holes lit for night play.

Sitting majestically atop a verdant hill and overlooking the entire course laid down below and around it, KGSAAS is within easy reach for a swinging time. Accessible from any point within the Klang Valley thanks to a comprehensive system of modern freeways and highways, KGSAAS provides a quick relief for avid golfers as well as a tranquil retreat from the hectic city life.

KGSAAS’s 27-hole course is designed by world-renowned golf course designers, Thompson Wolveridge and Associates which is helmed by 5-time British Open Champion, Peter Thompson. Utilising the terrain’s natural undulations and the lakes’ natural beauty, combined with over 25,000 replanted trees and shrubs, the result is a scenic landscape that is most breathtaking. The course also encompasses mounds and foothills to provide golfers with the thrills they seek. The fairways here are broad yet the greens are deceivingly tricky. All these make KGSAAS a truly challenging course for golfers as they set out to tame the USGA-approved championship layout.

A unique feature (and main attraction) of KGSAAS is the lighting up of 27 holes for night golfing. This allows the executive to unwind with fellow golfers after a busy day and for them to enjoy a rollicking good time in the cool comfort of the Malaysian evening.
