Location: On top of a picturesque sand bar between the Miri River and the South China Sea.

The very idyllic Miri Golf Club is set among the rustic surroundings of a Malay Kampung (Village) on top of a picturesque sand bar between the Miri River and the South China Sea. Though only a stone's throw away from the bustling city centre of Miri, separation by the Miri River offers a worry free hideaway and the hustle and bustle of the city is hardly noticed. The 18-hole course itself is built on flat land bordering beautiful white sandy beaches washed by the gentle waves. To make up for the seemingly flat and "easy" terrain, the early pioneers successfully added vigor and colour to the course by using strategic placements of water hazards and bunkers. Shaded by tall and ancient casuarinas trees, Kelab Golf Miri indeed has a unique beauty.
History Discovery of oil in 1905 brought wealth, prosperity and tremendous growth to the then small fishing village of Miri. Today, Miri has evolved into a bustling metropolis. To cater for the recreation of the expatriates flowing in from the Netherlands and England, Miri Golf Club was established as early as 1910. The first 6 holes of the existing course were constructed in 1924 by Sarawak Oilfield Limited, the forerunner of Sarawak Shell. Club Management, Staff and Members can feel justly proud, that from such modest beginnings, Kelab Golf Miri has become a harmonious multi racial club, with a membership of well over 1,000 members. From Miri Airport, it is only a 25-minute car ride to Miri Golf Club and from Miri City Centre, 15 minutes.
