That which makes The Mines Resort and Golf Club so popular and significant is the fact that it is located very near to the main city centre of Kuala Lumpur. Built and laid onto the site of the largest open cast tine mine in the world, this is a place where golfers can play and enjoy the game without having to travel too far away from the Klang Valley. It is a great weekend getaway for any golfer who prefers to be closer to the city.
The Mines Resort and Golf Club is easily accessible through major expressways leading to Balakong and Serdang and it is part of a 1,000 acre land which has a resort, a shopping mall and many other facilities. The designer of the golf course at the Mines Resort is none other than Robert Trend Jones Jr who is a truly established and distinguished golf course architect, having brought some of the most spectacular Golf Courses globally to the sport.
A significant factor about the golf course here is that there are quite a lot of sand patches and areas which was used to provide better drainage as it was formerly a tin mine. This was the challenge for the designers who have done excellently to produce one of the best courses around where it has already won awards like the No.2 Course in Malaysia and among the top 10 in Asia. Apart from that, The Mines Resort and Golf Club hosted the World Cup Golf and had the privilege of having Tiger Woods play there.
