If the idea of an idyllic island beach holiday combined with a challenging round of golf meets your fancy, then you'll love Tioman.
Located within the Berjaya Resort grounds, you'll find a spiffy 18-hole hole golf course that is just the ticket for those afflicted with the golf bug.
The, initially nine-hole, course, coined "The Seaview Course", was designed by Ronald Freamis in 1989. Soon thereafter, in 1992, the second nine-hole course "The Hillview Course", was added by Michael Coate.
The resulting par 71 course is perfectly situated; with a number of holes adjacent to the azure-colored waters of the South China Sea and plenty of jungle panoramas, this golf course will not only give you a run for your money, but will also stop you dead in your tracks here and there, just so you can drink in its spectacular visuals.
Play-wise, once you've made it past the tight fairways, be prepared to face bunkers, boulders, coconut palms, water traps, streams and ponds, all of which are naturally peppered amongst the mixed bermuda and cow grass grounds.
For your après-golf information, the Tioman Island Golf Club 19th hole overlooks both the sea and the golf course. It offers restaurants, a lounge, a bar and rooms for various indoor games and leisure activities.
