One of the most prominent Golf Courses in the Klang Valley is the Kelab Golf Negara Subang or KGNS in short. It was previously known as the Subang National Golf Club which was launched by the first prime minister of Malaysia YAM Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Alhaj.
KGNS has a very illustrious past where it went by many names before it used the current one where it is built on the Seaport Estate which was originally used as a rubber plantation. In 1963, the decision to buil a golf course was then mooted and the Sungei Way Golf Course was born before it was changed to Kelab Golf Kebangsaan Subang.
Due to its original rubber plantation setting, some of the trees can still be seen here. The national golf course was deemed necessary as the main golf club then was the Royal Selangor which was overflowing with members already.
Famous golf course in Subang Jaya
Today, KGNS is a popular golf course here mainly because of its historical past and the fact that it was located not far from the main commercial centers of the capital. In fact, KGNS’s location is regarded to be very strategic because it is within the vicinity of Subang and Sungai Way, two of the most rapidly growing townships in the county.
The golf course in KGNS was designed by Jeffrey Gibb & J.B. Twiss and has an 18-hole championship course known as the Putra Course and the Kelana Course. Among its most popular stretches here is the 7th Hole which is known as the ‘Seven Widows’ where it has some large bunkers and such.
