1. History

“Where it all began”. Melaka (Malacca) is rich with history. It was founded by an exiled prince from Sumatera (Sumatra), Parameswara, in 1400. From a port, it grew into an empire streching to Johor in the south, Perak in the north, and the eastern coast of Sumatera in the west. It thrived as a port-of-call to many a ship and merchant from China, India, Arab and South America. In 1511 it fell to the hands of the Portuguese followed by the Dutch in 1641 after a fierce battle. In 1795 Melaka was given to the British to prevent it falling to the French when the Netherlands was captured during the French Revolution. It was returned to the Dutch in 1818 under the Treaty of Vienna but was later exchanged by the British for Bencoleen Sumatera (Sumatra). From 1826 onwards it was ruled by English East India Company in Culcutta together with Singapore and Penang under Straits Settlement administration. After World War II, anti-colonial sentiment bred in the country among the nationalists, the result of which the proclamation of Independence by his Highness Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra al-Haj, Malaysia’s first Prime Minister, at the Padang Pahlawan (Warrior’s Field) at Bandar Hilir, Malacca on 20th February 1956.

3. Introduction

The history of Malaysia begins from Melaka (Malacca). The many remnants of the past will take a visitor on a nostalgic journey that goes back to 500 years of glorious and colourfull past. Every street, every monument tells its own story of conquest and valour, avarice and victory. Babas and Nyonyas (are the descendants of the Chinese who inter-married with the local people. The men are known as the 'Babas' ’nd the women are ‘Nyonyas’. They are said to be very Chinese in spirit and tradition but Malay in form). Malacca is Malaysia’s most fascinating and colourful historical city. It was Malacca that saw the cradle of the glorious Malay Sultanate in the 14th century. When Malacca was at her helm, Malacca became the centre of multi-ethnic synergy. From Malacca earliest days, Malacca was the rendezvous of the Arab, Indian, Javanese, Bugis and Chinese traders whose descendents form the multicultural society that is Malacca today. It is no wonder that Malacca evokes a special sort of magic for the Malaysians. That ‘golden age’ is now past, but the memories continue to enchant.

66. Golf Clubs, Courses and Country

It is only natural that the state once favored by Europeans, to be rich with golfing facilities that’s not only steeped in traditions but also designed corresponding to the verdant terrains,lakes, streams and the great blue sky up above. Ayer Keroh Country Club, the 18-hole panoramic is one of the most challenging courses in the country to push your skill to the limit. Once an exclusive and prestigious British planters’ club, the Jasin Golf Club is a 9-hole couse located within the confines of an army camp. The latest addition is the Golden Valley Golf and Country Club designed by Obayashi Corporation of Japan. The 54-hole golf couses with 3 international standard 18-hole courses is impressive in every sense of the word. Golfing in Malacca has certainly graduated into an art.
