About the Event

Ready for the ultimate golf weekend getaway? Then join AAS in Desaru Coast for a weekend of golf and family fun at the XCL American Academy Ambassador's Cup 2023! Grab your friends and family and come enjoy an incredible weekend break. 


The Basics

Grab your breakfast courtesy of The American Club then board a ferry from Singapore's Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal at 8:30 am for a easy, breezy, stress-free, 90-minute ride to Desaru. Be met at the terminal by the attentive staff from The Els Club who will whisk your bag to the golf club while you are taken to the very hip Hard Rock Hotel Desaru Coast to check into one of the hotel's new and modern rooms.


After you get settled, take the free shuttle to The Els Club to get your locker assignment where your goodie bag, shirt and cap will be waiting. Then enjoy a pre-round, buffet lunch. Finally, it's time for the big event: a shotgun start and an exhilarating day of tournament play on either the Ocean or Valley Course,  billed as the best golf course in Southeast Asia. Finish the round with cocktails at the club sponsored by Brown-Forman, then head back to the hotel for a rocking awards dinner and live music concert. Fab, right?


On Sunday after breakfast, you have two options: take a special 11:30 am ferry we have added to the schedule (need 100 people to confirm) or stay and play for the day. You can either add an extra day of golf (see below for extra golf details) or head to the water park attached to the hotel (those staying at the hotel get a free ticket to the water park) or do something else fab. Here are some other suggestions. Then catch the 5:30 pm ferry. You decide!
