A slight downhill par 3 over the water. You hit to the red-roofed hotel that you can see behind the green. Because there is water at the front left of the green and bunkers on the left of it. The green is quite deep, and has good undulations.

A beautiful par 4 overlooking the clear ocean. Although the hole is not exciting due to its relatively short distance, the view from the tee is impressive because the sea shines behind the green.

Because the big fairway bunkers are in play, the landing area off the tee becomes very narrow. The green is elevated.

An adjacent hotel

It is located 10 minutes from Kota Kinabalu Airport. You can watch airplanes flying nearby you. A 5 star excellent hotel is adjacent. Night golfing is available.

The distance sticks are not measured from the center of the green but from the front edge of it, so you need to be careful.
