The course imagery depicts the three 9-hole loops; The Coast, The Lakes and The Ridge, bringing to life the quality and distinction of each course.

The layout was inspired by four-time Major Champion, Ernie Els, who has built a reputation as one of the world’s preeminent designers, imparting in his creations his experience of golf courses from all over the world.

Desaru Coast spans over 3,900 acres of the stunning 17km of coastline adjacent to the South China Sea. The 45-hole property, which also encompasses the Els and Vijay Singh-designed Valley Course, provides golfers with not only the excellence and quality of an Els-designed layout but also beautiful surrounding in which to relax and world-class facilities to hone their skills. These include The Els Performance Golf Academy, which is the first of its kind in the region, the Big Easy Bar & Grill and the Café 261 - a relaxed terrace café with golf course views created as an ode to Ernie's Open Championship successes.

Of the images, newly-appointed General Manager, Stephen Havrilla, said: “It is fantastic to see the development of this course since its opening in 2016. Ernie’s vision for the Desaru Coast has really come to life as the courses continue to mature, offering an immensely entertaining challenge for golfers of all levels.

“We are delighted with the new batch of images that we are able to issue to media today. We think they have captured the essence and beauty of Desaru and are sure will drive a good deal of interest with potential visitors over the coming months”.

Easily accessibility via road, air and sea, the Troon-managed destination is growing in popularity with the introduction of a series of luxury hotel brands. In close proximity to the golf courses and sharing the pristine setting of Desaru Coast are the Aman Resorts & Villas, The Westin Desaru Resort, Anantara Desaru Resort and Hard Rock Hotel Desaru Coast. Guests can also enjoy the local water parks and culture as part of their adventure.
