Super travel tips, all road tested by David Herd. I'm an Australian guy who moved to Thailand in 2011 & still travel the world as often as possible.

David Herd Legends Golf Club Malaysia is a 90 minute drive from Singapore. In 2007 my friends and I (all legends) decided it was time to tame this course.

Is that Casey Stoner ?

This is more our speed

As you can imagine it is far too hot to walk the course.

Unless we meet one of these guys

Here we are Legends in our own lunch time

Designed by Jack Nicklaus, The Legends is one of the toughest tests of golf in South-East Asia. Legends can be best described as dramatic and can always be found in excellent condition.

The original concept of this resort included three championship courses: one designed by Jack Nicklaus, one by Arnold Palmer, and one by Gary Player. Only the Nicklaus course and nine holes of the Palmer course have been finished, though. The Gary Player course remains in the planning phase.

The par-72, 18-hole Jack Nicklaus course opened to golfers in 1997. This 6,710-metre (7,338-yard) course features views of the neighboring palm oil plantation. Don’t be surprised if monkeys stop to check out your game on the back nine too.

Lovely par 3

We almost had the course to ourselves

Where else would you rather be?
