Malaysia Best Stay and Play Golf Resorts


Best Stay & Play Golf Resorts in Malaysia

Malaysia, a bubbling, bustling melting-pot of races and religions where Malays, Indians, Chinese and many other ethnic groups live together in peace and harmony. 

Malaysia hotels and resorts are world class. 
Travel as far north and west as you can in Malaysia, and you'll arrive at the idyllic island of Langkawi. Here you'll find the Datai Bay resort, with two luxury 5-star hotels - Datai Bay (in Malay, Teluk Datai) and its excellently crafted championship golf course. 

Els Club Teluk Datai's layout is as spectacular as the environment is natural. The course meanders through a 10 million years old rainforest, twice heading down to the turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea. Overlooked by jungle-clad mountain slopes and the limestone peaks of the Mat Chinchang range, this immensely natural and scenic course is a joy to play. 

The Datai Langkawi offers stunning panoramic views of the Datai Bay. Each of The Datai’s 122 luxurious villas, suites and rooms, with its own charm and distinct atmosphere, are enveloped by lush rainforest foliage or set directly on a tranquil beach with mesmerizing views of the Andaman Sea. It is one of the best quality Stay & Play venues in Asia.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
