The Datai Langkawi

Pulau Langkawi, in the Andaman Sea off the northwestern tip of Malaysia, is one of just four inhabited islands in an archipelago of 100. Its remoteness makes it a nature lover's dream destination, with lush rainforests and pristine beaches. The Datai Langkawi celebrates this spectacular setting. The Asian-minimalist design blends beautifully into the landscapes, and the sleek guest rooms are equally sophisticated, with tropical wood floors, shantung-silk wall panels and sprawling marble baths. Families and couples on a romantic getaway happily co-exist here, while golfers can play the challenging, award-winning course, which has a unique 19 holes. Active types can partake in sailing, sea kayaking and snorkelling. *IMPORTANT NOTE: The Datai Langkawi is currently closed for refurbishment. The resort's most extensive renovation project is almost complete & will reopen its doors in September 2018 Nestled within pristine rainforest leading down to a private white sand beach, The Datai Langkawi is one of the best Malaysia resort experiences in Langkawi. This is a stunning hideaway at the very heart of nature. Footpaths through the jungle connect the resort, its free-standing private villas and two pools.

Gunung Raya Golf Resort

Gunung Raya Golf Resort
It won’t win any awards but it’s a decent open course which is perfect for high handicappers. Take plenty of water and sunscreen. In the foothills of the majestic mountain from which it takes its name you’ll find Gunung Raya Golf Resort set in 300 acres of what used to be a rubber plantation. Designed by American Max Wexler, it’s a useful addition to the limited options for golf in Langkawi. From the elevated tee on the 1st, a slight dog-leg right, you get a great view of the distant mountains and a pretty good idea of what the course is going to throw at you. The Bermuda fairways are generously wide and inviting, with plenty of leeway for those of us who are less than reliable with a driver. There is almost no OB and not too many hazards so there’s not that much to lose by going for it off the tee, certainly on the front nine. Having said that, the 225 yard par-3 7th features a tricky two tier green flanked by bunkers and exposed to some stiff breezes, so don’t think you’ll have a straightforward time of it on every tee. After the turn there is more in the way of foliage and you start to encounter water – the 10th is a beauty, a long par-5 dog-leg right with water all the way down the left and a fairway peppered with bunkers. One slight complaint is that certain sections of rough are just too thick, and it’s easy to lose a ball that you would never expect to lose. Part of the problem is that the drainage doesn’t seem to be perfect, so you can end up plugging your ball in a soggy patch of rough, even in the baking sun that is the norm. On that note, remember to take a hat and sunblock as it really is hot in Langkawi, and given this is a fairly new course the trees are yet to reach maturity and so offer little in the way of shade. Overall, this is a decent course that won’t be winning any awards but nonetheless provides enough to satisfy those who need to scratch that golfing itch and can’t get on the course at Datai Bay; probably best played on cooler days as the heat can really get oppressive at Gunung Raya Golf Resort.

The Golf Club, Datai Bay

The Golf Club, Datai Bay
This exquisite course will blow you away. The course is closed at the moment and in the process of being re-designed by Ernie Els and is due for completion in 2013. The Golf Club Datai Bay, routinely voted most scenic course in Malaysia and rated as the best in the country by Asian Golf Monthly in 2009, is the course that put Langkawi on the golfing map. Hewn out of 8,000 acres of rain forest reserve, it is a truly spectacular course which feels like an adventure and where every hole has its own personality. The huge range of flora and fauna is matched by the immense variety of challenges on offer. You’ll be treated like royalty upon arrival, as befitting a course that forms part of a 5 star resort, with exemplary service, free drinks on hand and helpful marshalls. The course itself is likewise fit for a king. However, said monarch better be good at golf or he is gonna lose quite a few balls around here. This is a deceptively long jungle course where missing the narrow fairways can have catastrophic consequences for your scorecard. Even shots that you catch flush can be cruelly diverted into oblivion by a rogue branch. The fairways are a delight, the ball sitting up invitingly on the Bermuda grass; the natural undulations make a shot from a completely flat lie something of a rarity though, meaning you have to take care that a perfect drive isn’t followed by a shank into the woods to join the onlooking monkeys. Sometimes a draw or a fade is required as the dog-legs are generally impossible to cut, and the numerous blind shots require some careful planning. The rough is tough to escape from, and the meandering stream that runs through the course greedily gobbles up balls that you’d expect to be safe. Although the greens aren’t quite on a par with the fairways, this is only a relative complaint as compared to most greens they are excellent, running fast and true. Either way, you may not even notice given how spectacular the course is. The fantastic scenery is enlivened by the aforementioned monkeys (no leaving food in the golf buggy) and massive lizards that call the course home, and each hole is so lovingly crafted around the contours of the jungle that they each have their own distinct character. The par-3s are particularly memorable, especially the elevated tee shot on the 15th to a small green far below that is fronted by lakes, and the famed 19th hole. While not technically part of the course (although you can play it as the 17th), it’s the best hole. Your tee shot must carry 185 yards of the Andaman Sea to a small green framed by the mountains in the distance – it’s a mind-blowing sight, amongst the most exhilarating golfing moments it’s possible to experience. If there’s nobody behind you, it’s hard to resist donating a few extra balls to the azure waters. After changing in the sumptuous changing rooms and relaxing with a refreshing drink in the cook clubhouse, it’s hard to imagine how a round of golf could have been more satisfying short of playing Augusta or Pebble Beach. Datai Bay Golf Club is golf at its best.
