Stay and Learn with David
Jan. 2020 • Solo
I had a brilliant experience being coached by David for two days on a stay and learn package. It has improved my game hugely. The facilities are world class, there is a strong coastal wing which makes the course cooler and much less humid than in KL. Ignore the negative reviews, they must be from people with personal grievances that have nothing to do with the facilities, people or courses.

I would play there every week, no problem.

Excellent Golf Course with fantastic views
Dec. 2019
We played the Ocean Course and the Valley Course, both courses offer spectacular holes and are among the nicest courses we ever played. The service by the staff members on both days was incredible. The food in both restaurants was very good. We will come back.....

Great choice for a golf weekend from Singapore
Dec. 2019
We booked a long weekend at the Westin Desaru and played the Valley Course and the Lakes & Ocean Course, which were rather different courses, within 5 minutes driving from the hotel and each other. We were informed timely that the Valley course is closed on Monday's so we played the more challenging Valley course first. The welcome, checking in and excellent practice facilities with complimentary range balls, were all well arranged by the very friendly staff. The course itself is undulating providing some nice views, but don't get distracted. The bunkers are well positioned and the water hazards require you to consistently play accurate to score. Some fairways require some further maintenance (bit of damage from wild boars, dry patches), but this is more "fine-tuning" and nothing too material. The buggies are excellent (seating, driving, GPS) and overall experience exceeds the JB golf courses. When we played, the course was quiet and the "Christmas special" made it a steal for about SGD 110 p/p for 18 holes on a Sunday morning! The Lakes & Ocean course next day was much flatter and forgiving with wider fairways, but the stiff breeze from the NE monsoon made it a very different challenge. Staff was again extremely friendly and personal. The two ocean holes gave some beautiful views, while the fairways and greens were in good to very good condition. We will definitely come back to play these courses again, just a pity that the border crossing can take so much time, because the 1.5 - 2 hours drive can become a lot longer, making a day trip a bit of a gamble.

Excellent golf course
Nov. 2019
We played the Ocean Course and the Valley Course, both courses offer spectacular holes and are among the nicest courses we ever played.
The staff at both courses is very friendly and helpful, this includes the bag drop, pro-shop, starter and also the staff a the restaurants.
Both course are in a very good condition and very well maintained. We were very lucky and could play on days with few other golfers which made our play very relaxing. This is definitely a place to come back.

Great Golf Day
Oct. 2019 • Friends
Had my golf game on 16 October 2019 with 2 more golfer buddies. Weather was great. Locker room is very clean. Check in is a breeze. GPS system on buggy was superb. No need to use range finder. Buggy seat is very comfortable. Staffs is very friendly.

We managed to play 27 holes. Only coast n ridge is open for play. Some fairways are under repair. Very challenging course. Love the view.

Foods at restaurant was very good. Portion is generous. Ambience in the restaurant is cool with an ocean horizon view. Service staffs very attentive.

Will definitely come back and golf here again.

Can be improved!
Sep. 2019 • Friends
The green is not well maintained despite it was a quite a challenging course. The fairway is too dry and hardly can see the grass grow. Ground was hard for you to play a good chip shot. Green is fast and better lands outside the green as it would quickly roll out green. The bunker sand is hard and moist. Hard to hit a good sand bunker shot for some holes. The buddy supposed to have food and drink ordering but somehow malfunction.. dying for drinks after 14 holes and hardly find drink stand or cart around. The clubhouse is great and the changing room was very nice. Expensive to play around at $500 per person kind of not so worth it on Friday. Hardly see a golf soul on Friday which is very bad! The food quality is very average.. some satay served without proper cooked. Played the ocean course today and found one hole near to ocean ...

Great stay and learn experience
Sep. 2019
My friend and I had just completed a 3 days 2 nights stay, learn and play package at the Els Club Desaru Coast. We both appreciate the helpful and friendly staff at the club and around the resort. We had a wonderful time and are already planning to go back there in the near future. We had signed up for a one and a half day lesson package with Dave, the pro at the Els Golf Academy and we are already seeing some improvement in our game, especially the short game. The facilities at the Academy was top-notch. I would definitely recommend a stay and learn package for anyone looking to improve on their game.
