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.
