Another award which our club won is the Top 3 Most Scenic Golf Courses in Malaysia by ParGolf for the second consecutive year,” said the resort’s general manager Patrick Tee. “The awards are in line with the main objective of the Damai Laut Golf Series 2017 which is to invite golfers to play in an award winning golf course.”
