Emville Golf Resort project to be revived

There is hope yet for those who bought bungalow lots at the abandoned Emville Golf Resort (EGR) in Dengkil more than 10 years ago as the Gema Padu Group, developers of Kota Warisan in Dengkil, would be reviving the project.

When EGR was first launched in 1998, the project located next to the Bukit Unggul Golf Resort in Dengkil, promised a refreshing treat for avid golfers as the course provided contrasting appeal from the first nine and the second nine holes.

The first nine or Pine Nine set within a garden concept and dotted with flower beds and pine trees and the second nine or Orchard Nine allowed golfers to experience a scenic route through the fairways with nine different types of fruit trees planted on either side.

Designed by Bobby Lim, Malaysia’s first golf professional, the course was poised to inspire seasoned golfers. However, buyers dreams for a resort-style life away from the city were shattered when the developers Emville Sdn Bhd abandoned the project as the company went into liquidation eight years ago.

Twelve years on, the more than 700 buyers of the project’s bungalow lots are feeling a little optimistic now as the Gema Padu Group has promised that the EGR is expected to be completed within three years.

The EGR is now in an abandoned state with overgrown lalang and almost bare hillslopes where some half-completed bungalow structures still stand.

The only part which has been preserved is the golf course and the clubhouse.

However, all this is expected to change with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) recently at the EGR between Gema Padu Group and Aman Golf School (AGS) which will see to the administration of the golf course.

The MOU was signed between AGS managing director Sharifah Mordiah Sayeed Alwie and Gema Padu Sdn Bhd director Lee Kuan Yong.

“The clubhouse is still standing and the golf course with its first nine would be rehabilitated and the whole area would be transformed into an exclusive area, all within the next three years,” said Lee.

For exclusivity: Lee explaning the rehabilitation programme for the Emville Golf Resort.

Sharifah, meanwhile, said that AGS is presently located at the Bukit Beruntung Golf and Country Resort and would be moving their business to EGR once the project is completed.

The AGS, registered with the Education Ministry, was established in 2002 to train young people with talent to become professional golfers.

“The AGS is equipped to facilitate the students’ training programme. We coach students to reach a certain benchmark of professional golfing,” said Sharifah.

In conjunction with the signing of the MOU, more than 120 golfers from both the private and government sectors and members of the media were invited for a friendly round of golf at the Bukit Unggul Golf and Country Resort.
