The POC2017 Annual Golf Challenge will be held on Monday 6 March 2017 at the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Golf & Country Club (SAASGCC).
SAASGCC is located in Shah Alam, the capital city of the state of Selangor, Malaysia. It is within 15-30 minutes by car from Petaling Jaya or Klang and 30 minutes from Kuala Lumpur City.
SAASGCC, with its 27-hole layout is connected to royalty not only through its location, but also by its designer, 5-times Open Champion, Peter Thomson, one of the "kings" of the game. This undulating Thomson-designed golf course comprises three nine-hole loops, i.e., the President, Sultan and Alam Shah. Using the natural undulations of the terrain and beauty of lakes, along with more than 25,000 trees and shrubs, the result is a picturesque landscape. The parkland KGSAAS courses are challenging without being overly dramatic. Thomson's trademark pot bunkers, rolling fairways and medium-to-large elevated greens all feature strongly.
The POC2017 Golf Challenge will be hosted on the Sultan & Alam Shah Nines, ensuring competitors are tested on the fabulous par-5 Dragon Hole (No.2 on Sultan). The same courses will be hosting the 2017 Selangor Amateur Open on 16 - 19 March 2017. Hence, course condition is expected to be excellent and challenging!
