Championship Golf in the Jungle

Honoured by Asian Golf Monthly magazine in 2000 as being the best golf course in Asia and Malaysia, Shan Shui occupies a very special site in Sabah, East Malaysia. The owner of Shan Shui, Datuk Kour, recognized the sites special attributes and allowed Nelson & Haworth free reign over its 350 acres. The resultant 18 hole course winds its way around the full site, making the most of its dramatic elevation changes, remnant tropical rainforest and surging river (complete with resident crocodile!). Special holes include the par 4, 15th hole (voted the best par 4 in Asia), the par 5, 5th (voted the best par 5 in Asia) and the par 4, 17th.
