Els Club Teluk Datai is distinguished by being a very special golf course. In addition to a great location with 5 holes, it is located on the edge of Andaman Sea and a number of the holes winds through a jungle-like landscape, and the special feature about this golf course, is that there os not a single bunker on the course.

Ernie Els who set the lines for this exciting golf course has taken the natural environment into account, and didnt build any bunkers. Besides taking into account the fragile ecosystem, he also had the idea that by leaving out the bunkers, you have avoided the maintenance problems that arise in connection with the monsoon rain in September and October.
Even without bunkers there are plenty of challenges. Large differences in altitude, hilly and narrow fairways and dogleg holes will challenge most golfers.

During the round you hav the mountain range, Gunung Mat Chinchang, to one side and the many small islands that encircle Langkawi to the other side. Small rivers repeatedly cross the fairways to challenge the players.
The close interaction with nature and the sounds of the rainforest helps to set the scene on a round of golf here. Also the sightof the little monkeys here and there sticking their heads out from the rainforest to follow a game of golf.

Els Club Teluk Datai, located in the northwestern corner of Langkawi, can easily be combined with a few days of golf holiday in Kuala Lumpur.

The Els Club Teluk Datai offers a big and beautiful clubhouse with pro shop, locker rooms and a good restaurant.
The Els Club Teluk Datai is part of the prestigious Troon Golf, which operates exclusive golf facilities worldwide.
