Kudat Golf Club Description:
(oldest Sabah golf course was once part of St. Andrews Scotland)

Established in 1906 when it was affiliated with St. Andrew’s of Scotland, Kudat Golf Club is the oldest golf club in Sabah Malaysia. Located in Kudat, a town on the tip of Borneo and 160 kilometers north of Kota Kinabalu, the Sabah golf course was upgraded into an 18 hole par-72 layout in 2002 when the new front nine opened and lengthened the total course to 6,080 meters. On sunny days golfers are treated to a spectacular view of Mount Kinabalu.

The original nine (now holes 10-18) is a vintage inland design with natural earth mounding found on most holes. Naturally wooded and matured, this 3075-meter course is challenging in its way, being surrounded by buildings, roads and many period houses. The tee-off from the dogleg hole 4 requires a shot over an office building for long hitters who want o chance it for the green in one!

The newer front nine measures 3005 meters and plays around the Marudu Bay providing a scenic view of the sea and Bengkoka Peninsular. Most holes feature large bunkers and numerous water hazards. The fairways and greens are grassed with Bermuda and play are greatly influenced by prevailing sea winds.

Kudat Golf Club is a walking only course with full practice facilities. The clubhouse is situated close to the 10th hole, which in the evenings is lit up to become a driving range. Restaurant service is available at the adjacent Marina Resort Kudat. Local seafood dishes are the specialty. Accommodations and other resort services are convenient for overnight guests.
