An Englishman a Scotsman and…………………another Scotsman, I know it sounds like the start of a bad pub joke, but this is no joke, The Golf Academy Borneo at the Sutera Harbor Resort is fantastic. My wife and I came here in April 2013 for our honeymoon and while she was off having a spa treatment I decided to get a…

Leading up to our holiday at Sutera Harbour my golf had deteriorated primarily as a result of poor chipping and pitching. I booked a lesson at the Golf Academy Borneo. On my return home I broke my handicap on my first two competition days, the…

I had a few golf lessons with a fantastic setting. The lesson itself was fun and very handy. My handicap is 19 so have lots of flaws to work with but over the course of the week I was already happier with my swing and game on the course. Highly recommended and very friendly!

My son and I booked a three day course of lessons with the Golf Academy. We are both golfers with handicaps in the low 20’s worked on all facets of our game. Swing video analysis helped a lot. The short game coaching was great and we have both dropped our scores significantly….

I just got back the golf academy. What a delightful place! Gorgeous surroundings, very helpful and courteous staff, just a beautiful and idyllic place to stay. Special thanks to the resident golf pro, would a helpful and friendly guy he is. Anyone thinking of going do not hesitate, you certainly won’t regret it!

During our vacation in Kota Kinabalu we came up with idea to try golf as there is not many attractions in KK. We took 4 hours of lessons with Pro Fraser and it was quite a positive experience. We got acquainted with basic golf techniques and now we are encouraged to continue learning and playing golf.

I had my first lesson with Pro Neil just to try it out. Already after the first hour I managed to be able to hit the ball and do a proper swing (in my own eyes 🙂 ). Will properly enrol in one of their beginner courses soon. Good experience.

In the last weekend, it was an enjoyable learning experience that I played two 18-hole with Neil. He pointed out what I should be noted to improve my driver swing and cured my alignment problem. I’m not playing golf very often because the short game always getting me down. Neil’s coaching does clear up my fear of putting, chipping and sand playing. Now, my eagerness in golf comes back!

I played 18 holes with Prof Neil and 2 of my colleagues this Monday early morning. The experience is excellent! Good food, nice weather and, of course, good golf. This was my first time played and coached by a Prof. Instruction is clear and simple to follow that improved my confidence and the way I was playing. I’ll definitely play another round if it is not my last day at KK.

I have played 3 or 4 times before and used this with a view of learning the basics. Fraser was easy to work with and offered simple effective advice. The next day I took all of the advice and saw a HUGE difference via the driving range, feels really good when you know hy it was a good or bad shot.

I am back next year and will book up a few lessons in advance.
