Mr. Johan & his friends at The Els Club Desaru: Valley Course

When asked about his experience, the first thing that came to his mind was “Crazy bunkers

It was such an honour for him to play at Vijay Singh’s latest design. And he had to admit that it was as astonishing as you’ve heard. According to him, one of the best features of this course are the bunkers. There are over 180 of them, which makes the course perfect for enhancing your skills!

Mr. Johan’s favourite part was the 11th hole. And as he described – “the tee box was on top of the hill, and the greens below lead you straight to the breath-taking ocean scenery.”

He mentioned that the service was great. He had the warmest welcome from the staff there. They were very friendly. So, don’t be too surprised if they already know your name the moment you enter. He also mentioned that he saw the lockers there were labelled with the golfers’ names. Which for him, was quite interesting.

As you’ve heard, the course is indeed challenging, but Mr. Johan simply described it as “it is okay, as long as you can hit straight”. He would definitely recommend it to his friends. So, take his advice and be among the earliest to experience the wonder of The Els Club Desaru: The Valley Course.
