We were staying at Shangrila Rasa Ria and decided we would try the golf at Dalit Bay. A shuttle picked us up at reception but we could have taken a ten to fifteen minute walk to get there. We played from the Blue Markers, (second longest) and found the water impacted on about sixteen of the eighteen holes. Among the three of us we managed only one birdie, many pars and quite a few that went well into bogie territory because of the water. We were hoping to see otters but only saw Monitor Dragons on land and in the water. There were some saying there were crocs in the lakes but there were no warning signs and we did not see any. My son lamented that his stray drives would be on the adjacent fairway on most golf courses but here it was "reload and take the penalty".
The fairways and greens were in excellent condition. The greens were slower than those of home (Victoria, Australia) but they were true and rolled well. Maintenance was under way all around the course but quite unobtrusive. Ladies trimming the side of the bunkers with scissors was an interesting aspect. The bunkers were well placed but some of them needed some superficial work. We played early morning so those that needed this work (mainly grooming) may not have been done yet. The cart tracks are substantial and cover the whole course without being intrusive. I would say that a cart is definitely needed at this time of the year (August) because of the humidity. Overall it was a great experience even though the standard of golf could have been better.

Played the course twice & both times the course was in excellent condition, maintained by a legion of green keeping staff.
From the back tees, the course provides a challenge requiring accuracy & long drives.
There are plenty of water hazards on the course, which are easily avoided if your placement is good,(another incentive to avoid the water was a report of a crocodile being spotted in a hazard when I played).
Golf carts are included in the green fee together with a complimentary ice box containing bottled water.
The staff are always eager to please, and the clubhouse facilities /changing rooms are among the best I have experienced.

We stopped by the club house after playing a round and had a very disappointing experience.
They told us we couldn't order any of the 3 sandwiches or burgers on the menu as they were completely out.
But it was only 11:30am in the morning and there were only a handful of golfers in the entire clubhouse as it had been raining. This is just terrible Guest service and poor menu planning. The real issue is that they didn't apologize or even seem bothered by the issue. They just didn't care. We expect so much more from a Shangri-La property and their management. Very disappointing end to an otherwise pleasant golf experience.

This golf course is not so complicated despite water present on almost every hole of the course. And the welcome from the staff is really excellent. To be played while you stay in shangri la.
