2. Poresia Golf Course JB
The course at Poresia Golf Club & Resort was built upon a former oil palm plantation and palm trees can be seen on the course, retaining some charm from the past. Each course has its appeal and risk for players
Length: 7058 yards
2.1 Hibiscus Course
Occasionally being combined on the weekends with Bougainvillea, this course begins and ends away from the clubhouse. The Hibiscus course borrows many characteristics from the Orchid course and most prominent are the hillways and sleeper bunkers.
2.2 Orchid Course
The Orchid nine also carries sleeper bunkers, and some golfers reckon it’s the best course out of the four for all of its challenging holes and undulating terrain lined with palm trees that make up the horizon.
Reviews gather this course will be tough for high handicapped golfers. Orchid is also home to the highest point on Poresia with sweeping views of the surrounding areas and plantations before pouring downhill.
2.3 Sakura Course
Plenty of palm trees with the Sakura course as well, which combines with Orchid on the weekends. This course does become narrower at certain holes in the middle of the course, with a few holes requiring crossing the fairway and accompanied with water hazards offering long hits for mid and low handicap players with a risk and reward occasions.
2.4 Bougainvillea Course
Pairing with Hibiscus on occasion, though the Bougainvillea course may prove to be lesser of the four courses, especially among players with a higher handicap, the course does prove its challenges with holes around ponds and water obstacles as well as the compact layout for narrower drives.
