The Dalit Bay Golf & Country Club
An 18-hole par 72 course designed by Ted Parslow with a driving range set amidst the nature reserve is the ideal spot to enjoy a few rounds of golf. Nestled incongruously in amongst its surrounds, the golf course looks out over views of Mount Kinabalu and jungle.
Surrounded by the Tambalang and Menagkabong River and mangrove swamps the course is relaxing but challenging. Holes are punctuated with water to add to the challenge. All experiences will find the course manageable with back tees adding an extra challenge for those who feel up to it.
