Front Nine

Hole 1

A beautifly framed golf hole welcomes golfers on tee box 1, with two choices for one’s first drive of the day. Big hitters may take on the waste bunker and sail out over the tree in centre fairway but a more conservative route can see one utilizing the generous right side fairway, where anywhere right of the “lone tree” should leave you with a reachable approach shot.

Hole 2

Let the games continue, a sharp dog leg right requires an accurately placed drive, with the optimum drive flying the right side bunker, a carry of 250 yards over mature trees from the Championship Tee, with lots of tree trouble on the right! A well placed drive is rewarded with a short iron to the green.

Hole 3

The uphill narrow fairway gets tighter for longer hitters and better to stay on the fairway’s left side to avoid the tree lined crevice on the right which ensures a blind approach shot! A generous sized green protected by bunkers awaits which, depending on the pin position can make a one or two club difference to one’s approach shot!

Hole 4

A deceptive uphill 158 yard par 3, where, if in doubt, take one more club, being sure to avoid the stone wall terraces on the right. Be warned, while putting avoid looking too often at the truly spectacular Gunung Agung, Bali’s highest volcanic peak!

Hole 5

Hit it long and straight on this par 4, as your drive must be over the crest of the hill to have a view of the undulating green, awaiting you in the valley below. The approach shot will most often be from a downhill lie, which requires you to focus on keeping your head down!

Hole 6

A great par 3 hole, some 205 yards uphill from the back tee, where one’s selection of club is critical, as there is very often a swirling wind at the green, which has two distinct levels. Hitting the level where the pin is placed, will avoid a putting surprise or two, or three!

Hole 7

A stunning vista of the ocean and Nusa Penida welcomes the golfer to an elevated tee box some 625 yards from the green. One must focus on hitting the drive “down the middle” and get close to the right dogleg turn, which gives you a view of a still distant undulating kidney shaped green awaiting your skill with the putter!

Hole 8

An accurate tee shot through a wooded ravine to a left sloping fairway, with OB along the right side, makes driving accuracy paramount here. The pin placement on an elevated green, will determine the target landing area for your drive, which to score well, will need to be either right or left on the day.

Hole 9

The beautiful front nine finishing hole dictates a drive centre left of the fairway, to avoid the babling brook down the right side and ensure the best angle for your approach shot to an elevated island green. Club selection for the approach shot is critical, as being either short or long can be “wet”!

Hole 10

The safe drive is to the center of the fairway but will leave you with an approach shot to a small target green over a deep greenside bunker. The “tiger” line is to carry the right side waste bunker off the tee, which will place one’s ball closer to the best angle for the approach shot to the green.

Hole 11

A dog leg par 5 awaits with a large pond and waste bunker to be cleared from the back tee, a 240 yard +/- carry and the second shot must not be right, as a lake awaits down the right side of the fairway to the green, perched on the lake edge!

Hole 12

Good club selection together with a committed hit, are necessary on this spectacular par 3, where you must take on the lake to an elevated green, guarded by a deep green side bunker, left.

Hole 13

The preferred shot off the tee is to the right side of the fairway but the “reward” is a semi blind second shot and while the left side bunker from the tee can be carried, the penalty for being short is severe, in a “valley of death” bunker! Having navigated the first two shots, your approach shot to a nestled green can also turn into a “minefield” on this 534 yard par 5.

Hole 15

A relatively short but strategic 393 yard par 4, with a lake carry from the tee box that could make for an interesting drive. One must also remain in the centre of the fairway to assure yourself of good position for the approach shot to an elevated green.

Hole 16

A great test of golf awaits you on one of the toughest holes on the course. A 534 yard par 5, almost always against the wind, with a draw required to clear the dogleg left on the second shot, from where you will enjoy a short approach shot to a well protected green, sitting amongst a large waste bunker on three sides!

Hole 17

The game breaker par 3, 17th hole, where playing for the first time, golfers may well ask, “where’s the fairway”! Yes, your tee shot needs to be somewhat precise, as the tee box and green are the only pieces of dry land on the hole!

A par 4, 408 yard dogleg left, draped by a lake and waste bunker all the way down the left side of the fairway, brings you to the 18th green directly in front of the clubhouse terrace, where many golfers will be watching both your approach shot over the lake and your par putts!
