Located off the main highway to Kuala Lumpur and right outside the Johor city limits, Johor Golf & Country Club history goes back quite a way. Initially designed by Malaysian Dato Ahmad Adam as a nine-hole layout in 1970 the full 18-hole track completed in 1972 and was then the first international standard golf course in the State of Johor.
In 1991 the course underwent a redesign and upgrading by noted designer Max Wexler. The renovation saw new Bermuda Tifdwarf for all putting surfaces. Moreover, new tee boxes, automated irrigation, and six additional lakes improved the playability and challenge. Since then Johor Golf & Country Club has hosted several professional events including the Iskandar Johor Open from 2007 – 09 with notable winners K.J Choi and Retief Goosen.
Nowadays Johor Golf & Country Club is semi-private and depending on the season and conditions could be a consideration for golf in Johor. The style of play is parkland with many mature trees lining the fairways as can be expected.
