DALIT Bay Golf & Country Club in Sabah, Malaysia, must be one of the most complete golfing and relaxation experiences imaginable.

Designed by Ted Parslow, this superbly sculptured 18-hole, par-72 championship course provides the challenger with a stimulating playing experience set among a truly breathtaking natural landscape affording spectacular views.

Bordered by the Tambalang and Mengkabong rivers with a stunning vista of Mount Kinabalu in the distance, Dalit Bay is a prime wetland course where water comes into play at every hole.

Dalit Bay is within the 5-star Shangri-La Rasa Ria Resort which boasts 90 premier rooms with sumptuous floor areas of 90 square metres each in the Ocean Wing, complete with a private outdoor bathtub on each balcony. There are also 330 Garden Wing rooms and suites, a 64-acre Nature Reserve, a 3-km stretch of white sandy beach and a wide range of recreational activities for the entire family.

Although, once on golf the course, everything else seems to disappear. The sea breeze carries the cries of wild birds and dense jungle fringes the immaculately manicured greens. It is a perfect union of nature and golf.

The course curves through rivers, wild rainforest and wetlands. Much of it was painstakingly developed from mangrove swamps. As you play the challenging course, you’ll catch glimpses of the pristine Pantai Dalit beach, verdant wetlands or the majestic Mount Kinabalu. Monkeys and monitor lizards are an occasional course hazard!

The front tees make for a relaxing social game, while the interplay of natural wild vegetation and wetlands, undulating greens, numerous lakes and narrow fairways deliver an intensely rewarding test. Dalit’s signature Hole 11, calls for a courageous tee shot across a river mouth to a smooth green flanked by bunkers, with Mount Kinabalu towering behind.

The experience doesn’t end at the 18th hole. Could a golfer imagine anything more delightful at the end of a game than to enjoy a little refreshment at the Clubhouse before visiting the adjacent Spa, where specially designed Golfers’ treatments ease away any post-game fatigue.

The perfect end to a great day’s golf.
