The highlight of this course is its stunning ocean, mountain and jungle views. Course condition were generally good, with a few greens that were a bit barren. The course is very playable. Rental clubs were passable, but in relatively poor condition (they provided me a lefty sand wedge in my right handed set). The course is expensive, but can be... More

A lovely course with amazing wildlife! My partner really enjoyed his round, even if he was melting! The birds and lizards were cool!

Course was very quiet so easy to get on in September. Not too difficult and hire clubs OK. Nice club house facilities. 4 holes gave views over the sea. Was a little pricey and our buggy would not allow driving on the fairway so slowed us down compared to other groups.

Love this green! Each hole looks so easy yet challenging. One good thing is there is no bunkers here except with lots of water hazards 😭 View at hole 17 is fantastic and there is also a Par 3 where you had to hit from the top (very high ground up) to the green and in between there is a... More

Datai Bay is such a sublimely beautiful area that one is immediately transported to one's interior Paradise - well before even sampling the delights of the Club. The weather was stunning when I visited- hot and balmy- the warmth reflected in cerulean blue skies and occasional billowing sailling ship sail-shaped clouds.

This course was recently renovated and with and outstanding result & experiences. The set up is within primary jungle,nice Mat Chinchang mountain at the back drop and beautiful blue water scenery which is outstanding. I am really impressed with the experience. There are few holes play along tthe ocean's edge. The green is fast and consistent. Course layout is very... More

Having played a few of the better courses in Malaysia, this course put a sharp contrast to what is good, and what not. It started with the staff receiving you, the very professional caddy master, the restaurant, the caddie and the course. 5 star treatment and quality. When you first see the scorecard, one might think that this looks like... More

This is an amazing course. The scenery is out of this world, combing both beautiful sea and mountain views - four holes either play along or end at the ocean's edge. The heavy rain the area receives led Ernie Els, the designer, to forgo sand traps anywhere on the course. As a result, the green complexes are quite forgiving and... More

We had a great 9 holes here while on holidays, the art had a gps that guided us around the course. The food at the golf club is also excellent.
