Borneo Golf & Country Club
About 69km from Kota Kinabalu City or an hour's drive along the Beaufort Highway at Bongawan you will find The Pride of Borneo, an 18-hole, par 5 golf course, sitting on the edge of the South China Sea.
Designed by Jack Nicklaus, this is a superbly-crafted buggy course that plays 6546 meters off the championship tees. Spread over 200 acres on a 900-acre site, the natural features of the lagoon and surrounding terrain is played up to dramatize the water hazards as well as the wastelands and bunkers, giving a strong character to the ‘Golden Bear' course.
Clubhouse facilities include a golfer's lounge, golf shop, locker rooms, driving range, practice area, resident pro and putting green, karaoke and billiards. There are also facilities for swimming, racquet games and fishing.
