The Horizon Hills Golf & Country Club has been the venue for the 2010, 2011 and 2012 instalments of the Iskandar Johor Open (IJO) – a jointly-sanctioned championship of the European and Asian Tours. The IJO 2010 saw a world-class line up which included defending champion KJ Choi, three-time Major winner Padraig Harrington, Europe's Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie and 2008 IJO winner Retief Goosen. Irishman Harrington lifted the trophy to win the USD1.25 million purse.
Padraig returned to defend his title in 2011 when once again, Horizon Hills hosted the IJO but this time with an increased prize money totaling USD2 million, 60% more than the prize money for the 2010 championship. The 2011 edition of the prestigious golf championship attracted 156 players – its strongest field so far in IJO's illustrious five-year history. The IJO 2011 was won by rising star Joost Luiten of the Netherlands.
