The Els Club Malaysia Teluk Datai opens for play.

THERE’S A GOOD REA­SON For Ernie Els spend­ing as much time as he has in Malaysia in re­cent years. He’s fi­nally launched a golf course of his own in the re­gion, in the most spec­tac­u­lar of set­tings on an is­land in the An­daman Sea. Among the guests at the of­fi­cial open­ing was the Queen of Malaysia. An an­cient rain­for­est is the in­land back­drop to the course, which has five holes skirt­ing the crys­tal clear blue wa­ters of the sea. From th­ese you can view white, sandy beaches and other is­lands which form part of the Langkawi ar­chi­pel­ago. It’s part of a lux­ury re­sort, the Datai Langkawi, and is the third Els Club in the world, fol­low­ing the ones in Dubai and in Gaut­eng.
