Very few golf courses in Asia and only some in Malaysia have such natural gifts endowed upon it. With a mountain standing guard like a giant custodian, overlooking a charming layout crossed by a river, Shan Shui Golf & Country Resort seems virtually stamped and approved by mother nature for golf.
Located about 15KM from Tawau Town and 30 minutes from the airport, Shan Shui Golf & Country Resort has an 18 Hole Championship Golf Course Designed by Nelson & Haworth. Many golfers consider the course one if Asia's best and a United States based golf magazine even ranked hole no. 15, one of the best 500 & top 250 par 4s in the world. This magnificent course present golfers with the ultimate challenge. Set amidst undulating terrain, Shan Shui dips and careens with an amazing variance and negotiating the tricky greens is an adventure itself. The 7365 yards, par 72 also
serves as a natural habitat for wildlife. If you are lucky enough, you can even watch Sabah's famed hornbills flying above some holes.
The protected "Honey Bear" trees, which stands more than 200 feet high are also evident on certain holes. Shan Shui literally translates to "Mountain-Water" and its easy to see why. With breathtaking mountains at the backdrop, the Membalua River or "Crocodile River" meanders through the site, home to a former rubber estate, and comes into play on nine holes. The banks of this small river are natural rainforest and contain spectacular flora. This course is truly one of a kind.
