PostSubject: Where to golf in Langkawi   Tue Oct 29, 2013 10:26 am

Hi guys, need some advice.

I'm planning to go Langkawi in December. There are quite a few courses there but i'm not sure which one is worth playing at. i prob only have time to play at one.

so if u could only play at one, which one would it be?

thanks!!!

Many years back, I played at The Datai Golf Club. Understand it has undergone refurbishment and will reopen in Nov 2013 as Els Club, Teluk Datai. Best give them a call or email to confirm.

My personal experience on Datai Bay....

But like you, I could only play one game after a business meeting and I choose the famous Datai Bay after reading the good reviews on the internet - boy..! it was horrible....and I think over-rated.  Mad Mad Mad Weeds growing on the fairway. The fairways was soggy. My tee shots got plugged almost completely. There was signature hole.... nothing great. On top of that, it was expensive. Paid almost 400 ringgit for a 18 holes game ( I rented the clubs - bad condition also). That was 5 years ago. If back to Langkawi, I would advoid the course. But, maybe it might have change.

Was told later that there another golf course located on higher ground is better. Don't know the name. Datai Bay is located near the seaside.  Good luck..!

The Els Club, Teluk Datai !!

According to the link below, 3rd paragraph, it is scheduled to be opened in Early 2014.

But yeah like what Gofnut has mentioned, it is best to contact them and find out in details.

It has to be Datai Bay.
The rest of the courses...CMI
But then again, it was a few years back...

Played in both Datai Bay and Gunung Raya in 2010.
Datai Bay is very scenic but conditions not so good.  That was before the major reno, now not sure.

Gunung Raya is not bad. Condition is very good.  Even after heavy downpour, they allow buggy on fairway.  But be careful of the wildlife there, I saw a few scorpions.

I've tried contacting Datai Bay several times but still no response. im thinking they are not open yet

From the online reviews, Gunung Raya doesn't seem like its worth the time or money

So i've decided on 99 East Golf club. It only has 9 holes available as the other 9 is still under reno. but online reviews look promising

any1 going to Langkawi early December? Would love a flight mate =)
