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.
