Along the Golfing trail of Johor
Johor is the southernmost state in Malaysia. It is home to the gateway that connects Malaysia with southern neighbour Singapore. Here is where you will find many international Golf Courses which are catered to local and foreigner golfers from all over the world.
As Johor is located very near to Singapore, many Singaporeans come here to enjoy the greens and its resort facilities. This is largely due to the fact that there are more choices available and are more affordable. In Johor, you will find many resort beaches with the likes of Desaru, Teluk Ramunia as well as around other major towns like Mersing and Batu Pahat.
You will find that Johor’s Golf Courses are one of the best around the region as they are designed by some of the most renowned golfers in the world while they are also located within some very lush and rich landscape around the state.
