By all accounts the Mimpian Jadi Golf Club is not recommended for golfers with high standards. It is included here for the sake of having the most comprehensive list of golf courses and facilities in Sabah.
Designed and built in the early 80s, the course – 40km from Kota Kinabalu city centre – is apparently for the golfer who likes their courses like they do their jungle; wild and unkept.
Various write-ups from 2010 to as recently as October 2011 reports that the Mimpian Jadi golf course is not well maintained. Fairways are not well kept and prone to flooding, which is hard to spot until you sink away in the soggy grass. It presents a real hazard for the petrol-engine buggies, as there are no buggy-lanes.
Sand bunkers are also not in great shape and reportedly is not as much a sand bunker as it is a hard, grassless surface.
Yet, in spite of being an hour-and-then-some out of Kota Kinabalu, and severely rough around the edges, the Mimpian Jadi Golf Club does attract a certain kind of hardcore, up-for-the-challenge golfer.
We are not currently able to offer reservations or bookings for golf or stay at this resort.
