Kelab Golf Sarawak (Sarawak Golf Club) is the closest golf course to the center of Kuching City and is the only 36-hole golf course in Sarawak.
The course consists of the south facing Matang/Santubong 18 and Siol/Demak 18 in the northern direction. There are total two 18-hole golf courses on a flat terrain, making exquisite use of water hazards.
The Matang Nine and the Santubong Nine make up one 18-hole course called “Old Course” while the Siol Nine and the Demak Nine make up the other 18-hole course aka “New Course” that opened in 1989. The old course is a little longer, has faster greens, and is the better of the two layouts.
The Matang/Santubong course is named after Sarawak’s well-known geographical landmarks, the two famous mountain ranges – Santubong and Matang. The mountains themselves are clearly visible 25 kilometers from the golf course. The 6,394 meter par-72 championship course is designed to test a player’s ball-striking accuracy and course management skills. It comes with a combination of undulating Paspalum grassed fairways and strategically positioned hazards to provide a great challenge to both high handicappers and scratch players alike.
