It is not ready yet. The whole course has been torn down and getting redone. Ernie is the designer.

Should be ready before end of 2012.

There is a good write up on status of Desaru's 2 new courses by Ernie Els and VJ Singh in March issue of Golf Digest Singapore edition.

Dear freedrop and butterfingers

Many Tks for the Desaru update.
Sounds like a sad area for golf till end 2014.

Any idea what the green fees are like for Senbana?

Wonder why they are building 2 golf courses there!
Is there some major development planned?

This all!
