Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: TPC Kuala Lumpur has recorded another milestone with its multi award-winning West Course being placed 78th in the latest listing of the World’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses.
Currently closed while under-going a major upgrade on all 18 holes, TPC Kuala Lumpur’s par-72 West Course has staged numerous high-profile international tournaments and been graced by the likes of Justin Thomas, Adam Scott, Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson, Sergio Garcia and Rickie Fowler.
Designed by PWGD and owned by Sime Darby Property, TPC Kuala Lumpur’s West Course is scheduled to play host to more of the game’s leading lights in the fourth quarter of this year with a whole new level of golfing experience on its newly resurfaced fairways and greens.
“This recognition reinforces the team’s motivation to excel as being among the best in the world as well as serve as a testament to what TPC Kuala Lumpur’s team is made of,” said Steven Thielke, Chief Executive Officer of TPC Kuala Lumpur, a Golf Course Facility Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
“To be listed in the World’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses has been part of our Club’s mission since we became a member of the Tournament Players Club (TPC) network about 18 months ago. I am very proud that our team has made it,” Thielke added.
The World’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses uses a single criterion of overall greatness scored not just by Americans but also by international panellists organised by Golf Digest’s affiliated magazines around the world.
The selection and voting process takes place every two years, taking into consideration the overall layout at every course.
