Malaysia Boleh? YouTuber Ranks Kuala Lumpur As First For Wasting Luscious Land on Golf Courses

As part of his regular urban environmental-focused content, Las Vegas-based content creator Ray Delahanty recently published a YouTube video to his CityNerd channel that analysed the top ten cities worldwide with the most acreage squandered on golf courses.

That being said, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia won the top spot for being a city that places the most emphasis on land-loss development largely focused on golf courses. What a way to put our country on the map, eh?


Citing his decision to put Kuala Lumpur on the top of his list as "not really arguable," the YouTube video has so far garnered more than 50,000 views at the time of writing. In fact, Kuala Lumpur tops Dubai and New Delhi, which are ranked second and third in the 15-minute video, respectively.

The list of examples includes places like Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club, Glenmarie, Saujana, Seri Selangor, and Royal Selangor Golf Club. 


In his video, Delahanty argues that golf is almost exclusively an isolated activity for the upper middle class and upper class, and therefore the excessive land used for the golf courses in Malaysia is rather conspicuous. The land could've instead been used for other urban developments including homes, businesses, or even public parks.

“I could go on and on with Kuala Lumpur, there's a lot of other ridiculous stuff going on, but I'm not gonna subject you to it.", and with that, the YouTuber ends his video.
