Safety and beautification works to be enhanced on fairways
By HAMDAN RAJA ABDULLAH
The Tanjung Emas Golf Club will be upgraded and provided with better fencing to avoid golf balls from hitting motorists or pedestrians outside the course.
Muar municipal council president Zulkiflee Abbas said Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin had agreed to allocate RM1mil to expedite the project.
He added that Muhyiddin, who has a home nearby the course, was concerned with the present fencing set up around the nine-hole fairways.
“There were incidents where motorists, motorcyclists, joggers and even pedestrians, hit by the golf balls.
“A lady was badly injured last year when a golf ball hit her while she was jogging along the Tanjung Emas road,” he said.

Zulkiflee addded that half of the fund would be allocated this year while the rest would be channeled next year.
The upgrades, he said, would also beautify the golf course area and make it much safer.
Recreational areas around the golf club located by the Sungai Muar estuary and next to the Muar district officer’s residence, attracted scores of residents almost every day.
He said the roads around the golf course had also been turned into a pathway for those who walk and jog.
“We hope to carry out the upgrade works soon as we want those visiting the areas around the golf course to feel safe. We also want golfers to feel at ease when playing at the fairways,” he added.
