Awards & Accolades

Golf course architect Ross Watson got his reward when Horizon Hills was acclaimed by StarGolf as the Most Memorable Course in Malaysia for 2010 in their annual awards. StarGolf is an influential monthly golf publication printed by The Star newspaper, Malaysia’s biggest English daily.

Despite opening their fairways and greens in 2008, Horizon Hills quickly made its mark and in 2009 it finished among the Top 5 in the Hospitality Asia Platinum Awards (HAPA). The best was yet to come. The same year CNBC Property Awards named Horizon Hills as its Best Golf Development for Malaysia and Asia.

The awards started to flow, like a river that has burst its banks. Most notably, Tee Times which is printed by The New Straits Times, named it as among the Top Three courses in Malaysia for 2010, the year that the Iskandar Johor Open was first hosted at Horizon Hills.

Asian Golf Monthly also named Horizon Hills as the Second Best golf course in Malaysia for 2011. Horizon Hills hosted the Iskandar Johor Open a second time that year. The event was sanctioned by the Asian Tour and was watched on television by millions.

Some of the players who gave the course the thumbs-up were KJ Choi of South Korea and the smiling Irishman Padraig Harrington who has garnered a large following in Johor.

Here is an appetising display of Awards and Accolades won over the years:
