The Mines Resort & Golf Club is a proprietary Club beneficially owned by Mines Excellence Golf Resort Berhad and operated by Mines Golf Management (M) Sdn Bhd.
Malaysia, a land blessed with abundant natural resources, became the world’s largest producer of tin in the early 20th century. Fetching lucrative prices, the precious mineral was mined extensively and excavations gave birth to the nation’s progressive development in its infancy.
Uniting both miracles of the man and nature, a unique transformation of the world’s largest open-cast tin mine was set in motion in 1909. The cessation of mining in 1982 transfigured a land once rich in precious minerals into a wonder that is a manifestation of aesthetic beauty and the splendour of nature, The Mines Resort & Golf Club.
A masterpiece of environmental restoration and constructive reengineering, the site was transformed from a land hostile to nature and the sustainment of life to a terrain brimming with a plethora of flora and fauna.
Construction commenced in 1993 and the course was left to mature for a year with maintenance of the highest standards. It was officially opened for play in 1994.
Affectionately partitioned between the first Crane Nine and second Eagle Nine, the parkland-styled course plays 6,966 yards from the championship tees but is golfer-friendly nonetheless with wide tree-lined fairways and well-contoured greens.
