Langkawi is rapidly establishing itself as a prime golfing destination: the perfect place to combine a relaxing luxury holiday with some of the finest golf in Southeast Asia. Tee off from two world-class courses offering stunning vistas, unique hazards and plush greens.
The Els Club
Within weeks of opening, The Els Club was named “The World’s Best New Golf Course” and “Best New Golf Course in Asia” at the inaugural World Golf Awards 2014. Designed by golf legend Ernie Els and managed by Troon Golf, it is a world-class 18-hole, par-72, 6750-yard championship course that weaves through ancient rainforest towards the marbled peaks of the Mat Cincang mountain range and the turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea. Paying homage to the surrounding nature, the course is free of traditional bunkers; instead, the indigenous flora and meandering streams create magnificent natural hazards. A sight to behold and an experience to play, located within 30 minutes of the Resort.
Gunung Raya Golf Course
Sensationally scenic, this international-standard 18-hole course – designed by renowned American golf architect Max Wexler – is located at the foothills of Gunung Raya, Langkawi’s highest mountain, just 15 minutes away from the Resort. Lavishly laid out over 300 acres of former rubber plantation, the rolling greens and impeccable fairways are contoured with sand traps and water hazards for an exhilarating round.
