Sediment analysis is well known as a tool for monitoring environmental impact not only from golf course but also from other development sources. Sediment analysis can be done in river, pond and lake. From this research approximately 5 ponds has been selected as a sampling site at Sarawak Club Golf Resort and 3 different tests has been done for each sample. Grab sampling method was carried out using grab instrument to grab sediment sample from the bottom of the pond. After that the sediment sample were dried at room temperature and were ground to 2mm in diameter for sample analysis. The tests conducted were organic matter by loss of ignition (LOl) method, metals concentration by atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS), and total phosphorus (TP) by ion chromatography (lC) method. Besides that, this study also determined the quality of sediment at Sarawak Club Golf Resort by comparing the results from this study with the international standards. This research also identified the major pollutant from Sarawak Club Golf Resort and put forward some suggestion way to treat or reduce it to save our environment in general.
