Overview

The Els Club Teluk Datai, located on the beautiful island of Langkawi. Easily one of the most stunning golf courses to open in SE Asia, it features an 18-hole Par 72, 6,750 yard resort golf course. Nestled within a centuries-old rain forest with towering lush tropical foliage, the holes meander their way down to the turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea. The backdrop for the entire course is the Mat Chin Chang mountains. We were recently voted #83 in the world by Golf Digest. The Hornbill Cafe part of the award-winning ‘Els Club Teluk Datai’ which has many believe that access is exclusive to elite club members and avid golf players - the cafe is open to public. So a great opportunity to enjoy a lovely meal and great service in a truly amazing setting!

Amazing Golf Course, surrounded by beautiful nature; peculiar in its design (no bunkers), however challenge comes from other sources, narrow fairways (especially from silver and black tee-box), small greens, water, elevated greens, dog legs and OBs. Must try.More
