The Best Golf Courses in Bali Island, Indonesia

The dream holiday island Bali is part of Indonesia. Bali is well-known for its luxury holiday resorts and tropical weather. However, if you can bear to tear yourself away from the immaculate white sandy beaches lapped by the gentle waves of an aquamarine ocean, Bali golf courses are amongst the best in Asia.

Golf courses customarily wind through rice paddy fields, past temples of worship, and across ocean coves. We have put some of the best Bali Golf Courses together for you;

Bali National Golf Club in Nusa Dua

Holes 18 | Par 72 | Length 6298 m / 6888 y | Type Parkland | Architect Nelson-Haworth

Redesign Freshly re-opened in 2013 following extensive and much-needed renovations that have stretched the course to over 7,100 yards from the black tees, Bali National Golf Country Club is set to reclaim the elevated status it had during the days when it hosted the 1994 Asian Dunhill Masters and was voted one of Asia’s Top Five Courses by Fortune Magazine in 1997.

Bukit Pandawa Golf & Country Club in Badung

Holes 18 | Par 54 | Length 2767 m / 3026 y | Type Parkland | Architect Bob Moore of JMP

The Bukit Pandawa Golf and Country Club is the latest addition to the already stunning golf scene in Bali and this course is no exception. A par 3 course that has been constructed on the Bukit Pandawa peninsular is perched on the limestone cliffs overlooking the Bukit Peninsular beach and the beautiful Indian Ocean. Just a 10-minute drive from Nusa Dua the course is well positioned for visiting golfers and tourists.

New Kuta Golf in Badung

Holes 18 | Par 72 | Length 6247 m / 6832 y | Type Links-style | Architect GolfPlan Crowned

Best New International Course by Links Magazine shortly after opening in 2007, New Kuta Golf Club’s reputation has only grown, and its recent hosting of the Indonesian Open cemented its status as the latest in a long line of quality Indonesian golf courses

Handara Golf & Resort Bali in Singaraja

It may be a long way from the traditional tourist centers in Nusa Dua and Ubud (up to 2.5 hours), but a deserved place in Golf Magazine’s “Top 50 Greatest Golf Courses in the World” means a trip to the world-class championship course at Bali Handara Kosaido Country Club is well worth the effort.

Bali Beach Golf Course in Sanur

Holes 9 | Par 36 | Length 2972 m / 3250 y | Type Resort | Architect Rajakulasingham

Following a much-needed upgrade in 2004 that added remodeled greens, lakes, a clubhouse and a double-decker driving range (open till 10pm), this formerly moribund course is now a decent alternative to the more exclusive clubs on the Island.

Nirwana Bali Golf Club in Kuta Beach (under renovation)

Holes 18 | Par 72 | Length 6222 m / 6804 y | Type Parkland | Architect Greg Norman

A short drive from famous Kuta Beach, the aptly-named and Greg Norman-designed Nirwana Bali Golf Club is about as blissful as golf gets in Bali. This is a stunningly beautiful course, featuring beautiful tiered rice paddies and blessed with views over the Indian Ocean It’s hard to argue with Golf Digest’s assertion that it is the best course in Indonesia
