Guide to golf in the serene state of Perlis


Perlis is the smallest state in Malaysia. It is located in the northern region of Peninsular Malaysia. It is known for its paddy produce where the state houses the northern gateway between Malaysia and Thailand. Despite the reputation of being the ‘sleepy state’ of the country, Perlis has much to offer to tourists and visitors who either come here to get to Thailand or for a break away from the more ‘commercial’ destinations of the country.

Tourism and golf in Northern Malaysia

Here, you will be able to indulge in the traditional lifestyle and common practices of the locals here among the villages as well as the residential areas where they are known to offer one of the culturally rich areas of the country. Perlis’ southern neighbor is Kedah, a popular golfing destination as well. It is known to be the home of one of the most significant archaeological findings in history.

Serenity and peaceful place to play

You will find that the state actually offers quite a lot of attractions when it comes to catering to tourists both from the local and international communities respectively. Here, you will be able to shop for goods at the Padang Besar market or head out towards Kangar the state capital where most of the transportation and commercial hubs are located. There are not that many choices when it comes to resorts and such due to the size of the state but you will find that most of the attractions are located within an arm’s length of the town center while some are towards the outskirts.

Putra Golf Club Perlis is the main club here

As Perlis is typically a very small state, you will find that there are actually not that many Golf Courses around here. The only club that you can go to for teeing off is at the Putra Golf Club Perlis. It is located within Kangar where it offers an 18 hole course. The lush greenery and excellent landscape here provide one of the more challenging greens that you will come across which is complete with water Hazards, bunkers which are very challenging, ponds and others. The course is located not far from the city center which is only about 10 minutes drive away. The club offers a guest-welcomed policy amidst its other facilities that include a restaurant, changing rooms and many more.
