October 29: Ernie Els, a four-time Major winner, was joined by royalty to celebrate the official launch of his first ever-golf course creation in South East Asia – The Els Club Teluk Datai in Langkawi, Malaysia.
Els struck the opening tee-shot in the company of Her Majesty Raja Permaisuri Agong Tuanku Hajjah Haminah, The Queen of Malaysia.
Key dignitaries, media and VIP guests witnessed the historic unveiling and enjoyed a unique insight from Els.
Upon unveiling the latest layout in the Ernie Els Design portfolio, which also includes courses in his native South Africa, Dubai and the USA, Els, nicknamed the ‘Big Easy’ said: “This is, without doubt, the most spectacular golf course setting I have had the pleasure of working on and I am incredibly excited about the prospect of inviting the first visitors to come and enjoy The Els Club Teluk Datai.”
“The course is truly breath-taking and I am delighted with what we have achieved here. I endeavoured to make the most of this unique location and I believe that we have done just that.
“It was an honour to hit the opening tee shot alongside Her Majesty and I would personally like to thank all of those in attendance for their support in what we are confident is set to become one of the world’s most revered golf course designs.”
