Located on the northwestern tip of the lush tropical island of Langkawi off the coast of West Malaysia, The Els Club Teluk Datai with its Ernie Els designed 19-hole championship golf course is one of the worlds most uniquely captivating golf projects.

Designed as a tribute to nature, The Els Club Teluk Datai meanders its way through million year old rainforest cascading down to the turqoise waters of the Andaman Sea and is overlooked by the marbled limestone peaks of the Mat Cincang mountain range. With 5 ocean front holes and stunning views of the Thai islands that lie just off the coast, its easy to lose focus on your game as you're immersed in such a serene environment.

Just 30 minutes’ drive from Langkawi International Airport, the resort offers the weary urbanite an idyllic retreat to nature. The Els Club Teluk Datai is under the same ownership group as the world-famous resort, The Datai Langkawi, where guests will be pampered in a surreal tropical rainforest experience. The beach at The Datai Langkawi has been voted in the Top 10 in the world.

Golf in the jungle

Fantastic layout in one of the oldest jungle on earth.

The course is super well kept, the surroundings are astonishing.
No bunkers, but if you are stubborn it is fully possible to land in the beach facing Thailand.
If you have but a minimum interest of wildlife, this is the golf course.
Birds, a lot of them, at least two spieces of hornbills, monkies - yes, lizards - some monitors. Snakes - not spotted (yet).

Staff, very friendly.

First time we played, the queen of Malaysia was there with entorage and half of the goverement, Mr Najib:( included was dining.

To sum it up, don't miss this golf course!

Beautiful course

Having spent the winter months in Langkawi I played the Datai several times. The course is beautifully presented and always in perfect condition. Buggies with ice boxes etc and caddy if you pay extra. Ernie removed all the bunkers so in some ways it is easy but there are often strange hollows in front of the greens which make it difficult to get near the pin.
There are various ways of getting a reasonable price for the green fee. The Clubhouse is well equipped as beautiful and a harder test.

Best Place

Golfer heart what more do you want.
Few places get five stars from me. This place deserves it.
The service is friendly, the layout and maintenance of the best.
Although definitely play in the upper price range - it's worth it.
