Carlsberg at the Cobra

The European Tour moves from Australia to Malaysia for the Carlsberg Malaysian Open played from the 15th to 18th February at the Saujana G & CC

Known as ‘The Cobra’ referring to the way in which the 18 holes coil snakelike through the old palm plantation, the Saujana Golf and Country Club strikes early. The 216 yard par three 2nd hole, involves a shot over a huge ravine and is claimed to be the most difficult hole in Kuala Lumpar

The third hole again involves a ravine but could be considered a gentle assault when compared to the Stadium Hole. The 8th one of course's signature holes, 413 yards, it has a huge depression to the left of the fairway.

H
omeward bound, the golfer still has to get through the final three holes. That is if he is still mentally and physically in shape. The humidity is intense and the physical demands of the course take their toll. The par three 16th is uphill and the journey there can be tricky. The 17th, at 360 yards has a severe dog-leg left, causing the player to seize all his courage to go for the green. The long 18th par five has a narrow approach to the green and 575 yards of difficulties before the pin.

Although not defending his title Lee Westwood last year's winner will be watching the tournament with interest over the next 4 days
