| Golf In Indonesia|
There are excellent golfing opportunities across the Indonesian archipelago and the fine tropical weather makes for ideal playing conditions. The status of golf in Indonesia has increased dramatically in recent years and it is no longer seen as an elite form of recreation. The image of the game has also improved with the emergence of a fresh breed of younger players such as the professional champion Tiger Woods.
Ultimately, golf symbolizes relaxation and it is a great way to relieve stress. Many overseas tourists are keen to fit in a round or two into their holiday itinerary. Below is a brief outline on the golfing possibilities that can be enjoyed in different parts of Indonesia. All reputable clubs have shoe and equipment hire, so there is no need to be burdened with the inconvenience of bringing your own gear on vacation with you.
Golf In Bali
Bali is a golfer's paradise and there are three major courses in diverse locations each with its own unique challenges and attributes. Bali Golf & Country Club is a superb 18-hole course set amidst tropical palms and coconut groves, and is conveniently located within the Nusa Dua enclave which offers world-class hotel accommodation. Superior facilities include imported shoes, clubs and carts as well as a stylish clubroom, restaurant, villa accommodation, swimming pool and spa.
Bali's most impressive course is the Nirwana Bali Golf Club which is part of an integrated resort that covers 101 hectares of prime land including a 5-star hotel, spa and exclusive residential villas. The course was designed to championship standard by legendary golfer Greg Norman. It takes in sweeping views of the Indian Ocean, the sacred Hindu sea temple of Tanah Lot on the 7th hole and has lush rice terraces incorporated into the green giving a real Balinese touch. Nirwana is the only course in Bali that has a Course Marshall and a team of all-female caddies that come from the surrounding local villages.
Bali Handara Kosaido Country Club is in the cool mountainous hills of Pancasari village. This 18-hole course provides a welcome relief from Bali's humid weather with average daily temperatures of 16 - 20 degrees Celsius. The course is a fairly demanding one that was designed back in the 1970's by a renowned golfing architect. Bali Handara has the reputation of being a panoramic green and due to its rather isolated location, a small hotel and collection of rustic bungalows is available for overnight stays. Other facilities include a traditional Japanese bath for a hot soak after an invigorating round on the course.
The Bali Beach Golf Course located at Jalan Hangtuah - Sanur, set in an environment of very mature, tall trees, has been given a face lift, with the introduction of lakes, mounding and features, including newly designed and constructed greens all of which add to the aesthetic beauty of the course. The Bali Beach Golf Course is a course that will provide challenges to all golfers of all skill levels.
