Forest City Golf Resort
Golfing legend Jack Nicklaus and his son, Jack Nicklaus II recently visited the Forest City Golf Resort to check on their design. The resort, which is slated to have three golf courses, the first 18 design by Nicklaus, is part of the plan to revive golf in the state again.
According to Nicklaus, the golf course is fully man-made as there was nothing there before.
“We had to work the ninth and 18th greens around a hill, and the golf course has beautiful river views. From a player’s standpoint, the golf course we have designed is unique as golfers cannot find anything like it in Singapore or Malaysia,” he said.
He added, “Although the terrains are challenging, the golf course is built with the amateur golfer in mind, as well as for handicappers and professional golfers.”
