OVERVIEW

Indonesia is a unique country right from its Geography with thirteen thousand islands to its cultural diversity, rain-forests  historical sites and unique coastline thus setting a basis for many an interesting travel possibility.

Golf in Indonesia is found popularly in Jakarta, Bali and Bintan. Jakarta, the bustling Capital of Indonesia with around 10 million people is packed with a mix of high end business districts, shopping malls, crazy traffic, lip smacking cuisine and mind blowing nightlife. The economy has been through a rollercoaster ride in Indonesia, but Jakarta has held its ground and has come up as a leading golf tourism destination in Asia. With a number of great quality golf courses in Jakarta, you will be surprised with the kind of golfing experience you can have in Jakarta.

Bali on the other hand represents a completely different culture which is a unique form of Hinduism set in a tropical paradise with endless beaches of Kuta to the forested hills of Bedugul. There are 4 good quality golf courses in Bali and from the spectacular setting of the Nirwana Bali Golf Club on the beach to the Bali Handara Golf Course which is in the highlands of Bali, you get a chance to experience completely different golf courses.

Both Jakarta and Bali however have an equally wild nightlife and party scene. Jakarta plays host to a myriad of bars, nightclubs and discos which will bring even the most hard boiled nighthawks to a point of exhaustion!

The Bintan Island is just a 40-50 minute ferry ride from Singapore and that is the best thing going for the island in the straits of Malacca. Add to this, the relatively easy visa policy of the Indonesian government for visitors to their country, and we have a destination that all will like for the convenience. While the beaches are as good as anywhere else in Indonesia, it is the Bintan Resorts area which is a big draw with it high end all-inclusive resorts that offer activities and short getaways for the entire family. The golf courses on Bintan are top-rate and include the two at Bintan Lagoon Resorts designed by Jack Nicklaus and Ian Baker Finch and the spectacular 27 holes at Ria Bintan designed by Gary Player.
