Located in Sabah, Malaysia, Lahad Datu Golf And Country Club is a stunning 18-hole golf course set amidst vast oil palm plantations on the Sandakan to Lahad Datu highway. It is approximately a 7-hour drive from Kota Kinabalu. The course was the first all-Bermuda golf course in the Sabah area when it opened in 1994.
This par-72 layout stretches over 6,325 meters, making it one of the longest golf courses in Sabah. Water hazards are scattered throughout the course with numerous ponds crossing naturally flowing streams. The signature hole of Lahad Datu Golf And Country Club is the 17th, which features an island green with a narrow plateau where the tee shot needs to be landed.
It’s important to note that the course is prone to flooding during the monsoon season, so it’s advisable to check the condition of the course before booking during this time of the year.
