Kota Permai Golf & Country Club opened its highly-anticipated revamped golf wing yesterday after close to a year-long closure which saw major renovations and upgrading works.
The RM13.5 million renovation project commenced last July and reached completion at the end of March, featuring an interior design concept of ‘Tropical Elegance’. Significant extensions and upgrades can be seen in the changing rooms, with the men’s now measuring a spacious 6,975sq ft (from 4,036sq ft) with 280 lockers (from 257) and 41 shower cubicles (from 16). The ladies meanwhile have a 2,314sq ft facility with 122 lockers (from 88) and 12 shower cubicles (from 8).
Other highlights include three luxuriously-appointed VIP rooms, a fully-covered golfers’ starting point, two storage rooms for event organisers, a card access locker system and two air-conditioned waiting lounges.
“As a town maker, Gamuda Land understands that a town is primarily made up of the community, so our design and planning principles focus on community interaction and bringing people together. The same principles were applied in the design, planning and execution of refurbishment works to our golf wing. We wanted to create a personality for the club so that all our patrons – be it members or guests, get a strong sense of belonging and want to be a part of the Kota Permai family,” said Tang Meng Loon, Gamuda Land’s director of club operations & townships.
“Our intention of wanting to create top notch amenities and provide an excellent service structure has finally come to fruition. We are now ready to host any international golfing spectacle, as we believe that our world-class facility is well-equipped to handle the magnitude of such events and pose a unique experience once paired with our award-winning golf course,” he added.
The official opening was attended by Gamuda Land’s executive director Dato’ Goon Heng Wah and corporate development director KC Goh, Kota Permai management and committee members, media and other guests including representatives from the various parties involved in the project. The launch featured a lion dance performance, tour of the new facilities and was rounded off with a networking golf game.
