Things To Remember Before You Travel To Play Golf in Malaysia

Plan your golf in Malaysia and check out these guidelines before heading to golf courses in Malaysia! | Malaysia Travel | Travel141

We know that you are excited to crack the whip out of those golf clubs but you must be ready with golf travel essentials you need to know. Take note of these travel tips before you play golf in Malaysia!

 

To bring or not bring your full set golf clubs?

Plan your golf in Malaysia and check out these guidelines before heading to golf courses in Malaysia! | Malaysia Travel | Travel141

If your purpose of travelling is to just play golf in Malaysia and nothing else, then it would be better to bring your own full set of golf clubs. But, if your travel plans involve sightseeing or business, it would be better to just rent golf clubs at each course.

 

Stock up on golf balls or buy them instead?

Most of the golf courses in Malaysia have lots of water hazards and it is not uncommon for even good golfers to lose several golf balls during their round. Stock up on 1-2 dozen of your favourite golf balls.

 

Ensure the safety of your golf clubs

You don’t want your golf clubs to get lost or damaged before you can even get to use it, right? Book your Malaysia golf travel trip through a specialized golf tour operator like Golf Asian who is well equipped to properly handle and secure golf equipment and has already factored in baggage transfers into your package. You also might want to invest in a special travelling case to help protect your clubs.

 

Always check the weather before booking your golf tour

One of the most important things you need to do before you book a tour and play golf in Malaysia is to check the weather. You never know if the rain will pour on your desired golf tour date. Even worst, you might encounter a typhoon coming so it’s better to be aware of it.

 

Other essentials needed in your golfing travel

Besides bringing your golf clubs and balls, you might want to bring other essentials needed while golfing in Malaysia.

  • Sunblock (with the highest SPF). The tropical sun can be a little strong in Malaysia so you must protect your skin from it
  • This is not only for the rainy season but also to give you shade from the sun.
  • One of the important things to bring during the game if you don’t want to get dehydrated especially during the summer season.
  • Band-aids. Although golf and country clubs in Malaysia have clinics equipped with first aid kits, you never know when a blister, insect bite, or scratch will require especially during the game.
  • Other items that you might need are extra golf gloves and towels.

 

Hire a private car with a driver

Avoid the hassle of not finding a taxi and taking public transportation carrying your full set golf clubs. Hire a private car with a driver that will bring you directly to your desired Malaysia golf courses. Don’t know where to book? Don’t worry! Travel 141 International Car Rental Services will launch soon for your travel convenience. Subscribe to our newsletter below to get more updates!

 

Be cool and have fun!

The most important thing that matters is your attitude toward the game. Treat your caddies and co-golfers with respect. Win or lose, always keep your cool, accept the results, and have fun! An after-game drink or a dinner would be satisfying as well.

 

If you’re all set, check out some of the top golf courses in Malaysia!

PLEASANT WEATHER

There is never a wrong time to visit Vietnam due to its ideal geographical location. In general, the weather is pretty much warm and humid although this can vary depending on the region of Vietnam you are in. The weather can be as cool as 17°C up north where Hanoi is located but it could also go up to 35°C down south in Ho Chi Minh City. As long as you pack appropriate clothing for the weather, your golf game in Vietnam will definitely not be compromised.

VIETNAMESE CUISINE

Without proper substance, how will you play golf in Vietnam? Thankfully, Vietnam offers a wide variety of food that will satisfy even the pickiest eater. Even if you have never visited Vietnam, you are sure to have eaten Phở before. This soupy bowl of goodness is sure to warm your soul during those days when temperatures dip to 17°C.

In contrast to hot steamy Phở, Gỏi cuốn (more commonly known as rice paper spring roll) is a perfect light summery snack. These little translucent parcels are packed with vegetables and often meat and prawns. Dip into a sweet chilli sauce and you will feel like you’re floating in heaven. For those who need a little sustenance in between their games, this will be the perfect afternoon snack.

For those who have a sweet tooth, this three-colour dessert is sure to satisfy your cravings. Loaded with red beans, cooked corn, and agar agar jelly, this parfait is then drenched in coconut milk. While it can be eaten hot or cold, it is most popular as an icy snack served with a scoop of ice cream – great for cooling down after the whole day out in the sun.

 

Through the course of this Vietnam golf guide, you may have already booked yourself a flight to Vietnam. If you have not, remember that Vietnam is no more than a 4-hour flight away, making it a perfect golf getaway. Once you are in Vietnam, it is best to book a private hire car as local taxis may have problems accommodating your prized golf clubs.

5. Phuket

Ending off this list is Red Mountain Golf Club, which is a former tin mine site. Since then, the area has been transformed into a driving range which cleverly makes use of the landforms and elevation changes to provide a challenging course to even a professional golfer. In fact, some of the changes in elevation are so sudden that having a golf cart is a must. However, not to worry if you are not an experienced golfer as there are different golf courses suited for golfers of different levels. This Thai golf course has also been a host to several prominent golf tournaments including the BMW Tournament.

The Travel141 International Car Rental service will be launching soon so do subscribe to our newsletter below in order to receive regular updates.
