The Johor Golf Resort occupies 800 acres of land along the water on Straits of Johor and next to Pasir Gudang new town. It takes 30 minutes to reach from either the Singapore-Johor causeway or Johor Bahru itself.
The Plantation Course opened for play in November 1992. The area was once an oil palm plantation with villages to house workers who also developed fruit orchards and coconut groves. Original cultivated parts of these plantations and farms form the course landscape. Preserved is a large number of oil palm fringing the fairways. Fruit trees along Holes 4, 6, 7, 14, 15 and 17 include durian, mango, jackfruit, and rambutans. The Plantation Course plays to a length of 6,454 meters.
Facilities at Tanjong Puteri Golf Resort include a 52-bay driving range, practice green, large classical clubhouse, and four restaurants – with the Chinese Restaurant being the best of the bunch. Golf carts are mandatory on all three golf courses. However, caddies are not available, and the service on-the-course is only average. Johor golf visitors should give the on-site resort a miss as it caters more to locals and is quite far away from the main golf tourist areas. Overall, golfing at Tanjong Puteri Golf Resort is still good to include as part of any Johor golf holiday.
