SHAH ALAM: Award-winning Kota Permai Golf & Country Club (KPGCC) recently unveiled its new Golf Wing, after almost a year-long closure which saw major renovations and upgrading works undertaken to the original structure.
The highly-anticipated reveal was attended by high-ranking Gamuda officials namely executive director Datuk Goon Heng Wah and corporate development director KC Goh, club management, members of the media, club sponsors and event partners, committee members as well as the contractors, architects and designers involved in the project.
Renovation works which commenced in mid-July last year were completed at the end of March, at a cost of approximately RM13.5 million. Featuring an interior design concept of ‘Tropical Elegance’, the total overall expansion measured 7,265 sq ft.
Significant upgrades can be seen in the male changing room size, which increased to 6,975 sq ft from its original 4,036 sq ft and the female changing room from 1,905 sq ft to 2,314 sq ft. In terms of locker numbers, male golfers now have 280 lockers (previously 257) and female golfers 122 lockers (previously 88). As for shower cubicles, male golfers now have 41 units from their previous 16, and females 12 from their previous 8 units.
The extensive project was a joint effort between various parties contracted by the club i.e. Hicom Gamuda (developer), Lim Hoo Seng Construction Sdn Bhd (main contractor), In Strike Sdn Bhd (ID contractor), Garis Architects Sdn Bhd (architects), Zaidun Leeng Sdn Bhd (engineering consultant) and Design Tone Sdn Bhd (ID consultant).
“As a town maker, Gamuda Land understands that a town is primarily made up of the community, so our design and planning principles focus on community interaction and bringing people together. The same principles were applied in the design, planning and execution of refurbishment works to our Golf Wing. We wanted to create a personality for the Club so that all our patrons – be it members or guests, get a strong sense of belonging and want to be a part of the Kota Permai family,” said Tang Meng Loon, director of club operations & townships.
He said the design configuration is one of a kind, and the club can now comfortably host a multitude of golfers over such a large area.
“We are now ready to host any international golfing spectacle, as we believe that our world-class facility is well-equipped to handle the magnitude of such events and pose a unique experience once paired with our award-winning golf course,” Tang added.
