INSET: Kooindah Waters Golf and Spa Resort SAuJANA Golf & Country Club in Malaysia has been announced as the 15th member of the exclusive European Tour Properties network, becoming an official European Tour Destination. It is only the third venue outside of Europe to gain European Tour Destination status and the 11th in total. Located approximately 15km outside the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur, Saujana hosted the Malaysian Open in 1999, won by American Gerry Norquist, which entered the record books as the first event to be co-sanctioned by The European and Asian Tours. It then hosted the tournament a further five times between 2001 and 2009, with Vijay Singh and Thongchai Jaidee among the winners, earning a reputation as one of Asia’s leading venues. Peremba, the owners of Saujana Golf & Country Club, have promoted the Malaysian Open, through their company GlobalOne, since 2006, while they also promoted the Indonesian Open from 2006 to 2009 and the Singapore Masters in 2006 and 2007, both tournaments featuring on The European Tour International Schedule. Saujana Golf & Country Club is situated in a former palm and rubber plantation and has two courses – The Palm Course and Bunga Raya. Both were originally designed by Ronald Fream, and in 2009 Bunga Raya was redesigned by Ted Parslow of Australia. The two courses are endorsed by the R&A as championship courses, and the Palm Course has been voted as the sixth toughest course in the world, while Bunga Raya was voted as the 69th best course of the world outside of the uSA by Golf Digest uSA. The golf club is directly linked to two world class hotels, The Saujana Hotel Kuala Lumpur and The Club Saujana Resort which is a Small Luxury Hotels of the World. As well as the hotels, there is a spa and a selection of internationally themed restaurants.
