Course Detail
Hole 1/10: Par 4
This is a good starting hole that plays dog leg left. Play center left to avoid bunker on the right. Long hitters could reach the open swale, which is 30m from the green. The green is slightly raised and easily accessible from the right. It has a few interesting pin positions, especially on the far left of the green.
Hole 2/11: Par 3
It plays 150m from the back tee. This is the only Par 3 on the course. The presence of a constant head wind makes the hole play longer. The green is elevated. The water in front of the green is in play and adds character to the hole. A beautiful hole that is set well amongst palm trees and water. Focus on the green and not the water. Extra club here is a good idea.
Hole 3/12 (320m): Par 4
The hole plays dog leg right. Good positioning on the left side of hole is key to the opening up for the approach. The green bowls out and receives shots well. The hole is well tree lined. Too far right would leave you with no shot to the green. Keep in mind of the cross wind.
Hole 4/13: Par 4
The hole plays dog leg left. Good tee-shot is played to the right. Most players will carry the open swale on their tee-shots. The green is slightly elevated. The green itself slopes back to+ front and is easily accessible from the right. Good idea to stay below the hole. The bunker in front of the green catches errant approach shots.
Hole 5/14: Par 4
The water feature near the tees sets up the hole. The fairway is rather narrow, and is tree lined. The bunker on the right should not come into play on most tee-shots. The hole plays against the wind and is longer than it appears. The green is well bunkered and accuracy is key on the approach shot. Pin position on the left will play tough.
Hole 6/15: Par 4
This longest hole of the Par 4’s bends right and is easily the most difficult hole on the course. All the trouble is on the left. The main concern is the approach shots over the lake guarding the green. The green runs away towards the right. Approach shots must avoid the bunker on the left. Weigh up the options carefully to avoid going away with a bad score. A par is good score on this hole.
Hole 7/16: Par 4
The hole plays straight. The main concern is the bunker on the right, which must be avoided at all cost. The green is elevated and very tightly guarded by bunkers. An extra club in this hole may not be a bad idea. Beware of the string of bunkers on the left towards the green. Three putts could be common on this green.
Hole 8/17: Par 5
The only Par 5 on the course. Errant tee shots will catch the bunker on the left of fairway. Shots played to the slope on the right side could set up well for the next shot, which must be positioned more towards the right before the lake. The approach to the green is most challenging. The green is very tightly guarded by the bunkers. Aim center left to avoid trouble. A true test of golf.
Hole 9/18: Par 4
The rather longish Par 4 is a good finishing hole. The hole bends right and the temptation is to cut the corner. This will considerably shorten the hole. But it is not without risks, especially the pot bunker on the right slope of this rather elevated fairway. The green is elevated and well guarded. Pin positions on the right can be challenging. A good par if you make it. Be aware of three putting on this sleek green.

Bali Golf and Country Club

Course Overview
Designed by Nelson, Wright, the 18-hole course has a Championship rating of 73.2; a tournament rating of 71.7; a resort rating of 70.4; and a ladies’ rating of 70.1. Nick Faldo holds the course record – a marvellous 63 shot at the Alfred Dunhill Masters in November 1994.
The longest hole is the 7th, boasting 580 championship yards. The trickiest? Whichever one you’re currently on! Watch out for some unusual terraced landscaping hazards that might just inspire a kind of longing for a good old-fashioned bunker.
Course details
Par: 72
Total yardage:
o Championship tees – 6 888
o Tournament tees – 6 469
o Resort tees – 6 036
o Ladies tees – 5 208

Nick Faldo has played here. So have Ian Woosnam, Vijay Singh and Colin Montgomery, amongst others. This comes as no surprise though, when you see Bali Golf & Country Club, undoubtedly one of the five best golf experiences in Asia, for yourself. The course at Bali Golf & Country Club is unique in that golfers enjoy two distinctly different nine holes. On the front nine you drive off into rain forest clad hills, moving onward to spectacular vistas out over the Indian Ocean to Nusa Penida and the volcanic mountains of East Bali, where Gunung Agung reigns supreme. The back nine sees golfers doing battle with giant coconut groves to stay on the carpet of verdant green fairways and greens, finishing off with the Indian Ocean practically lapping at your golf shoes. Of course, as spectacular as the views are, the objective in golf is always to keep your eye on the ball, remember?
