Originally opened in 1991, the West and East Courses were completely redesigned by renowned international golf course architects E & G Parslow, re-opened in 2008 and 2010 respectively. KLGCC offers a choice of two 18-hole courses – the West Course, an international championship Par 72 course and the East Course, a social, wetlands-themed Par 71 course with facilities for night golfing.
The Clubhouse was designed by William Moisson in the graceful Spanish style of Southern California. The completion of renovations are approximately of 250,000 sq ft of covered and exclusive facilities for Members and their guests with amenities at the Club carefully planned to guarantee a smooth flow of activities in the functional area. KLGCC is now outfitted with the latest state-of-the-art facilities.
The new driving range, comprising of three levels accommodating 78 bays, has been completely reconstructed to provide more challenging targets for all golfers to aim at. New larger grass tees have been constructed to full golf course tee specifications with the same paspalum grass as is found in the golf course. The range itself has been reshaped to resemble the golf course. The target greens are scaled imitations of four of the West Course greens – holes 5,14,18 and 11. The greens are now relatively flat to give a more realistic feel and allow golfers to see where their ball actually finishes. The entire range is covered with artificial grass of different colours and where possible slopes are such that balls will run to the automatic ball collection drains. The netting at the back has also been raised to lessen the number of balls exiting the range.
